In this article, we will show you how to create, configure, and connect your Gemini 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 unavailable 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 Gemini
Log in to your Gemini account or create a new one.
2. Go to the API Settings page
After logging in, click on "Account" in the top right-hand corner of the page.
3. Proceed to the "Settings" page
Then navigate your mouse cursor to the "Settings" page.
4. Create a new API key
Click [Create API key] to start adjusting your API info.
5. Select the scope for your API key
To set up your API key successfully, pick a primary account.
6. Name 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.
Then 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:
Fund Management off
Make sure to use a primary account.
Do not require a session heartbeat.
Copy your API and Secret keys.
When you save both API and Secret keys, please click [Create API key].
7. Go to Bitsgap > My Exchanges
Now your Gemini 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. Log in to your Bitsgap account and go to the My Exchanges page, where you can find an option to connect your Gemini account. Click [Add Exchange].
8. Select Gemini exchange and enter your API info
From the pop-up window, you need to choose Gemini. This will open a window where you can add your Gemini API key and Secret key. After that, click [Connect].
9. Connection check
If everything is done correctly, you will see Gemini added to the list of your connected exchanges with the Connected status and the trading balance available on your account.
