There are 3 different ways to create an API key for the ByBit exchange:
1. FastAPI (a new way to quickly create an API).
2. Through the binding of third-party applications.
3. Create an API in the usual way.
1. ByBit FASTAPI is a convenient, fast and secure way to create API keys. With FASTAPI, you can automatically generate and bind API keys in a couple of clicks without having to enter them manually.
If futures trading is enabled in your ByBit account, then using ByBit FASTAPI, 2 separate API keys are created at once — Spot and Futures USDS-M.
When FASTAPI is connected, a white list of IP addresses is used, which ensures the safety and security of user funds. All trading operations will be allowed only from IP addresses from the white list. In addition, the FASTAPI connection cancels the 90-day validity period of the API key.
To use this function, you need to select the ByBit exchange on the API key addition page and click the link "FASTAPI connection", you will be redirected to your ByBit account, where you will need to approve access. If you are not logged in to the exchange, then you will need to log in first, it is better to do this before creating an API key.
