How to create an API key

To create an API key unique to your Exchange account:

  1. Select the Profile Menu in the top-right corner of the Exchange dashboard

  2. Select API from the menu

  3. Under Profile Information, select the API Settings tab, then select + New API Key

  4. Select your profile and appropriate permissions, create a passphrase, and then enter in your 2-step verification code 

  5. Finally, select Create API Key at the bottom to make a unique key. The new API key and secret will be displayed on the API Settings page

Please note that the API secret will only be shown once, so remember to record your Secret in a secure location. If you lose your API Secret, we will not be able to retrieve it.
