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

  1. Head to the HTX exchange website and either log in or create a new account.

  2. Click on your profile located in the upper right-hand corner, then select "API Management."

  3. Assign a memorable name to your API key, enable the "Trade" option, and whitelist the IP addresses displayed in your Cryptohopper account.

  4. Click on "Create" and ensure to check the Risk Reminder checkboxes. Complete the 2FA process.

Unable to see yourHTX exchange balance?

If you are unable to see your HTX 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 HTX, even if your API Keys are correct. The most common reasons include having no funds in your HTX 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.
