Why, when I using Kucoin API, get_tick, for market info, I see, that sell is bigger than buy?

Example from official API Documentation: With a symbol param

    "coinType": "KCS",
    "trading": true,
    "lastDealPrice": 5040,
    "buy": 5000,
    "sell": 5040,
    "coinTypePair": "BTC",
    "sort": 0,
    "feeRate": 0.001,
    "volValue": 308140577,
    "high": 6890,
    "datetime": 1506050394000,
    "vol": 5028739175025,
    "low": 5040,
    "changeRate": -0.2642

    I’m voting to close this question because it's not related to Bitcoin but to the API of a web service. Questions about it should be directed to their forum or customer support. Commented Sep 7, 2023 at 12:16

"lastDealPrice": 5040,

"sell": 5040,

This means that the last price exchange happened is at 5040 and sell is at the same price, i.e. a sell order at that price has been executed and registered as "Last Deal Price", which is actually higher than the buy orders price.
