Hi there Hoppers!
Are you ready to start hopping? But you don’t know where to start? Help is underway!
In this tutorial, we are going to explain how to transfer Bitcoin to your Bittrex account and how to set up your hopper.
The main goal of hopping on Bittrex, is to gather more bitcoins. To achieve that, you’ll need a start amount Bitcoin, so we’re going to transfer Bitcoin to you Bittrex account first.
Obviously, first we need an account. Let’s create one.
|Go to Bittrex.com|
And click "login" above in the right corner.
|Creating an account|
Click "sign up", under the login button.
Fill in everything.
Please, do not use an easy password. This account is where you'll store your funds, so it's very important to choose a strong and long password.
After you've clicked the sign up button, you will receive an email with an activation link. Click the activation link and you have succesfully created your account!
To be able to fund your account, you will have to verify yourself. This is to prevent money laundering. It's very easy to verify yourself, so let's do that right now.
When you're at the homepage of your account, click settings.
Click Basic Verification. Fill in all the required fields and you're done.
Click "Wallet" in the top bar. Next, click the + sign at Bitcoin.
Deposit your funds on the address that is shown.
|Create API Key|
Now we have to give your Hopper permission to trade on your behalf. This is done with an API Key.
Go to settings -> API Keys.
You will have to enable two-factor authentication before you're able to create API Keys.
|Configure your Hopper|
Now you've created your keys, it's time to configure your Hopper. Go to your Hopper's dashboard and click Config.
Choose Bittrex as your exchange.
Fill in your API key and your API secret key.
And you're done! Check our community forum where users share their Hopper settings.
