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

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

  1. Go to the Bybit 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."

  3. To create an API, click on "Create New API." Then choose "System-generated API Keys."

  4. Assign a name to your API key, select “Read-Write”, and whitelist the IP addresses shown in your Cryptohopper account by clicking on "Only IPs with granted permissions are permitted to access the OpenAPI."

  5. Mark the checkboxes next to "Trade" and "Assets," and uncheck "Account Transfer," "Subaccount Transfer," and "Withdrawal." Click on “Submit” and enter your Security Verification details.

  6. Enter your Bybit API keys. Click on "Connect to Bybit" in Cryptohopper and continue creating your trading bot.

Unable to see your Bybit exchange balance?

If you are unable to see your Bybit exchange balance, there may be a few issues preventing your trading bot from synchronizing with your 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 Bybit, even if your API Keys are correct. The most common reasons include having no funds in your Bybit 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.
