In this article, we will show you how to create, configure, and connect your FTX 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 FTX
Log in to your FTX account or create a new one. Please note Bitsgap does not support FTX.US.
2. Go to the API page
From your account settings (top-right corner) navigate to the API page.
3. Create API keys
Scroll down to the bottom of the page, and click [Create API key].
4. Copy your API key and Secret key
Now your FTX 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.
5. 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 FTX account. Click [Add Exchange].
6. Select FTX exchange from the list
From the pop-up window, you need to select FTX. This will open a window where you can add your API keys for the FTX exchange.
7. Enter your API key and Secret key
Paste your FTX API key and Secret key, then click [Connect]. Now your FTX account has been successfully connected and you are all set!
