In this article, we will show you how to create, configure, and connect your Huobi 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 Huobi
Log in to your Huobi 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. Label your API key and match API key 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.
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. When you are ready, please click [Create].
Here is the list of required permissions:
Bind IP address empty
4. Enter the code
You will receive a code in your email, copy and paste the code. Once done, click [Confirm].
5. Complete the creation of API keys
You will receive a confirmation link to your email address, check all your permissions once again and click on the [Confirm] button if everything is correct.
6. Copy your API key and Secret key
Now your Huobi 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.
7. 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 Huobi account. Click [Add Exchange].
8. Select Huobi exchange from the list
From the pop-up window, you need to select Huobi. This will open a window where you can add your API keys for the Huobi exchange.
9. Enter your API key and Secret key
Paste your Huobi API key and Secret key, then click [Connect]. Now your Huobi account has been successfully connected and you are all set!
