Current Rate of sending Request to cloud

What is the current rate of sending Request to cloud and get back the data?
I had used LED to control the brightness of led.but using for loop to increase the brightness of led from 1 to 255 displays that “Your API access has been rate limited”.can anyone help me with this query?

if your API becomes overloaded, its performance suffers.Rate limits protect against that by curtailing the number of requests that come into your server.Rate limiting allows API developers to ensure an API will reject requests that exceeds a set limit.
For free plan API hit limits are
1 min 20 API hits
6 mins 72 API hits
30 mins 360API hits
60 mins 720 API hits

@sidharthparthsarathi you have to upgrade ur bolt cloud by paying a fee of Rs 50 for 1 month. After doing so there won’t be any limit.
