In order for it to work with the exchange on your behalf, the bot uses the API key, which must be created in the settings of your exchange account. The API key consists of a public and a secret part.
Important! Only create API keys with the ability to trade, but without the ability to withdraw funds from the exchange.
To add an API key to our system, go to the API Keys tab and open the Add API key menu. There you:

  • Choose a name for the API key so that it can be easily identified.
  • Select the exchange in the drop-down list.
  • Enter the public part of the API key.
  • Enter the secret part of the key.

Use one API key for multiple bots on the same exchange.
