In this article, we will show you how to create, configure, and connect your OKX 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 the OKX exchange

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

2. Go to the API page

Navigate to the API page from your account settings (top-right corner).

3. Create a V5 API Key


Click [Create V5 API Key] to proceed.

4. Label your API key and match permissions

Give your API key any name (it is your personal choice), so you can easily understand that this key is connected to your Bitsgap account.


❗ Please note that you will need to create a Passphrase at this stage. This password is individual for each API key. Save it somewhere safe because we will need it a little bit later.


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 - on

  • Withdraw - off

  • Trade - on

  • IP address - empty

Insert all the codes for the security verification, and proceed by clicking the [Confirm] button.

5. Copy your API key and Secret key


Now your OKX 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.

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

7. Select the OKX exchange from the list

From the pop-up window, you need to select OKX. This will open a window where you can add your API keys for the OKX exchange.

8. Enter your API key and Secret key

Paste your OKX API key, Secret key, and Passphrase and click [Connect]. Now, your OKX account has been successfully connected, and you are all set!
