How to create and set up WhiteBIT API key
Updated over a week ago

In this article, we will show you how to create, configure, and connect your WhiteBIT 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 WhiteBIT

Log in to your WhiteBIT account or create a new one.

2. Go to the API page

From your account settings (top-right corner), navigate to the API page.

3. Create API keys

Click [Generate a new API key].

4. Verify the API generation

To create an API key, 2FA should be enabled for your WhiteBIT account (can be activated in the Security section of Settings). So, to proceed with creating your API key, enter the 2FA code from your authenticator app.

5. Copy your API key and Secret key

Before proceeding with further changes, copy the API info somewhere safe and then click on the Endpoint access restrictions.

6. Match the API key restrictions

Edit your permissions as in the example below. These restrictions will allow us to read your history and current balance and execute trades on your exchange account.

Here is the list of required permissions:

  • Trade balance and order history on

  • Wallet balance and history on

  • Order management on

  • Deposit off

  • Withdrawal off

  • Balance transfer off

  • Codes off

When you are ready, please click [Apply changes] and enter the 2FA code from your authenticator app once again.

Log in to your Bitsgap account and go to the My Exchanges page, where you can find an option to connect your WhiteBIT account. Click [Add new exchange].

8. Select WhiteBIT exchange and enter your API info

From the pop-up window, you need to select WhiteBIT. This will open a window where you can add your API key and Secret key, then click [Connect].

9. Connection check

If everything is done correctly, you will see WhiteBIT added to the list of your connected exchanges with the Connected status and the trading balance available on your account.
