In this article, we will show you how to create, configure, and connect your Bitstamp 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).

Log in to your Bitstamp account or create a new one.
2. Go to the API Access page
From your Account navigate to Security, and then to the API Access page.
3. Match API key permissions and Submit your key

Here is the list of required permissions:
Leave IP Address Filter blank
Associate API key with your Main Account
Account Balance on
User transactions on
Open orders on
Cancel order on
