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

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

  1. If you haven't already, go to HitBTC's website and create an account.

  2. Verify your account and get started on the API by navigating to “Settings” and then to “API Keys”.

  3. Click on “New API Key”. To connect your HitBTC account with Cryptohopper, you'll need to copy the API Key and API Secret displayed on HitBTC and paste them into the corresponding fields on Cryptohopper.

  4. Provide a name on HitBTC for your API Key, enable all options except “Withdraw cryptocurrencies” and then click on "Save".

  5. Once you've done this, click on "Connect to HitBTC".

Unable to see your HitBTC exchange balance?

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