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

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

  1. If you haven't already, go to BingX's website and create an account. It's a simple and quick process. Make sure you have your email address and personal details ready.

  2. Once you've created your BingX account, verify it and proceed to set up the API. To do this, navigate to your user profile and click on API management. It's where the magic happens!

  3. Click "Create API." Select your account, give it a name for reference, and enter both your email code and Google Authenticator code. Stick with the Main account unless you're using sub-accounts.

  4. After creating the API, click on "Edit" and activate "Spot Trading." If you're using a sub-account, click on "Manage Subaccounts." This step ensures your trading bot can perform trading operations seamlessly.

  5. Now, go to Cryptohopper and copy the displayed IP addresses. Return to BingX and select "Restrict access to trusted IPs only." Paste the copied IP addresses here and click "Add." This security measure ensures trades can only be initiated from Cryptohopper's servers for added protection. Important note – Do not click "Save" just yet. We have more to do!

  6. Copy the API Key and API Secret from BingX and paste them into Cryptohopper. This is the final piece of the puzzle that links your trading bot to BingX.

  7. Go back to BingX and save the API Key. Enter the email verification code and Google Authenticator code once more for added security. Now, it's time to connect! Click on 'Connect to BingX' within Cryptohopper.

Unable to see your BingX exchange balance?

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