Have an account on Bitsgap, but don't know how to connect your Bybit exchange?
No worries, in this article we will show you how to create and configure your Kucoin API key so you can connect your exchange account to Bitsgap!
What do you get by connecting your exchange account to Bitsgap?
With Bitsgap you will have access to the all-in-one trading platform where you can connect all your cryptocurrency exchange accounts under one unified interface. You will be able to do exactly what you would do on your regular exchange account but with some really cool trading tools!
How do you connect your exchange account and what is the API key?
Every exchange has an option to create a unique API key for an account. This API key will allow us to communicate with your exchange account and process your trading from the Bitsgap interface.
Consider it as your username and password but limited to checking your balance and executing your trading decisions. By using the API key you will not give any information about yourself nor any access to change your account settings or perform withdrawals. Everything will be limited based on your API settings.
1. Log in to Bybit
Log in to your Bybit account or create a new one.
2. Go to the API Keys page
From your account settings (top-right corner) navigate to the API page.
3. Label your API key and match API key permissions
Click the [Create API] button to create a new API key.
❗ Please note that you will need to choose the name of the 3rd party application, Bitsgap in this case. Make sure it's correct, otherwise, the keys will not be connected.
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:
Block Trade off
Account transfer off
Subaccount transfer off
When you are ready, please click [Submit].
4. Insert all the codes for the Security Verification
Fill out your 2FA code, then click the [Confirm] button.
5. Copy your API key and Secret key
Now your Bybit trading key is successfully created and ready to be connected to our platform! Please, copy your API key and Secret key somewhere safe before you add them to Bitsgap. Once you click Understood, you will not see your API keys anymore.
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 Bybit account. Click [Add Exchange].
7. Select the Bybit exchange from the list
From the pop-up window, you need to select Bybit. This will open you a window where you can add your API keys for the Bybit exchange.
8. Enter your API key and Secret key
Paste your Bybit API key and Secret key, then click [Connect]. Now your Bybit account has been successfully connected and you are all set!
