API Keys Acccount Configuration

What is an API key?

An API key is the bridge between a Software (Cryptuoso Trading App) and any supported Exchange (Bitfinex, Binance, Kraken). The API key allows to make deals and monitor positions on your account.

Why does Cryptuoso need API keys?

  • Read out the actual information about coins prices.
  • Ask the exchange about you portfolio status for account statistics
  • Send buy and sell commands to your exchange automatically

By using this API key, we do not require any Login information of your exchange, nor can we withdraw any funds (Make sure to never enable withdrawal rights in your API keys. As this allows companies to withdraw funds. We explicitly do NOT want these rights.)

How can I create API keys?

Look at the section for your Exchange.
