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.
