In this article, we will show you how to create, configure, and connect your Bittrex API key to the Bitsgap platform.

Bitsgap is a trading platform that allows you to work with numerous cryptocurrency exchanges from a unified interface with access to additional tools that are not available on the exchange.

All trading operations are created and processed by using an exchange API key which is unique for every user. An API key is a safe and reliable way to use a platform because it does not give access to your personal data and prevents any funds management (withdrawals & deposits).

1. Log in to Bittrex

Log in to your Bittrex account or create a new one.

2. Go to the API keys page

From My account (top-right corner), navigate to the API Keys page.

3. Create a new API key and match permissions

Click on the [Create new API key] button.

Edit your permissions as in the example below. These permissions will allow us to read your history, current balance and execute trades on your exchange account.

Here is the list of required permissions:

  • Read Info on

  • Trade on

  • Withdraw off

Click [Continue] once you insert your 2FA code.

4. Copy your API key and Secret key

Now your Bittrex trading key is successfully created and ready to be connected to our platform! Please copy your API key and Secret key somewhere safe before adding them to Bitsgap.

Log in to your Bitsgap account and go to the My Exchanges page, where you can find an option to connect your Bittrex account. Click [Add Exchange].

6. Select the Bittrex exchange from the list

From the pop-up window, you need to select Bittrex. This will open a window where you can add your API key and Secret key, then click [Connect].

7. Connection check

If everything is done correctly, you will see Bittrex added to the list of your connected exchanges with the Connected status and the trading balance available on your account.
