All you need to know about API Keys

API Keys are the most secure way to connect trading bots to exchanges. In our case to securely connect the crypto bots to Binance, KuCoin, Gate.io, Bybit and more. You control them and the permissions what an application can do with your account.

What are API Keys?

An application programming interface (API) key is a code used to identify and authenticate an application or user. API keys are available through platforms, such as a cryptocurrency exchange.

Why do we need API Keys for trading bots?

Through the API Keys the bot communicates with your Exchange account and is able to check your balance, place orders, cancel orders and so on. This is needed to establish a secure and encrypted connection. Hence we will never ask for any login info like e-mail or passwords. Never.

What permissions are needed?

For our crypto trading bots we only need the permissions to "read and write" (they have different names for every cryptocurrency exchange - see below). You will never need to give permissions to withdraw funds from the exchange! Never!

This way your funds are save and can't be transfered somewhere else. When you use our crypto bots you also store those keys on your Computer or VPS. Hence we don't have store them or see them which gives additional protection to the system. As you are the one that controls permissions and the tool and no one else has even access to your API Keys.

Never give permissions to withdraw funds from a cryptocurrency exchange! Save connection via API Keys stored on your device!

How to get the API Keys for the Bot?

With KuCoin, your password for the generation of the API Keys is also required. This is not your 6-digit trading password.
