Step by step explanation how to create API Keys for Bitfinex:

To get subtitles in your language on YouTube, click the Settings button on YouTube.

  1. Go to the Bitfinex exchange website and log in or create an account.

  2. Click on the profile button in the upper right corner and then click on "API Keys."

  3. To create an API, click on "Create New API" and enable "Create and Cancel Orders."

  4. Whitelist the IP addresses shown in your Cryptohopper account by disabling "Allow Access from Any IP" and copying and pasting the IP addresses.

  5. Give your API key a memorable name, such as "Cryptohopper1," and enter your two-factor authentication. Click on "Create API Key" in your email.

  6. Enter your API keys in Cryptohopper and redo the API process another time for optimal trading.

  7. Click on "Connect to Bitfinex" in Cryptohopper and continue creating your trading bot.

Unable to see your Bitfinex exchange balance?

If you are unable to see your Bitfinex exchange balance, there may be a few issues preventing your trading bot from synchronizing with your Bitfinex exchange. One common cause is "auto-fill" being enabled in your browser. To fix this, try disabling auto-fill, using incognito mode, switching to a different browser, or disabling your password manager. For more information, you can watch our Cryptohopper Academy video on this subject or check our troubleshooting article.

You might encounter an error in Cryptohopper's onboarding process when connecting to Bitfinex, even if your API Keys are correct. The most common reasons include having no funds in your Bitfinex exchange account, having no funds in your trading account (as some crypto exchanges differentiate between funding and trading accounts), or not being a verified exchange user (KYC). In this case, please click on 'Continue without testing'. You can always check your API Keys later in your Base config.
