In this article, we will show you how to create, configure, and connect your Gate.io 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 Gate.io
Log in to your Gate.io account or create a new one.
2. Go to the API Keys page
From your account settings (top-right corner) navigate to the API Management page.
3. Select the APIv2 Keys
You will see two options on your left-hand side, please select the APIv2 Keys option.
4. Enter your 2FA code and fund password
Before creating your API keys, you will have to enter your passwords. Once done, proceed by clicking the [Show APIv2 keys] button.
5. Copy your API key and Secret key
Now your Gate.io 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.
Your API key is the Key tab. Your Secret key is shown in the Secret tab.
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 Gate.io account. Click [Add Exchange].
7. Select Gate.io exchange from the list
