How to transfer Bitcoin to your Bittrex account and set up your bot.

Step one

Go to and login or create an account.

Step two

Verify yourself. This is to prevent money laundering. When you're at the homepage of your account, click on “My Account”, then “My Profile”. Fill in the required fields and you're done!

Step three

Now you have to give your bot permission to trade on your behalf. This is done with an API Key. Think of an API key as the bridge between Cryptohopper and your exchange, which allows your bot to do things like place automated orders and read your balance to use in its calculations. You will have to activate two-factor authentication before you're able to create API Keys. You can activate the two-factor authentication under “My Account” then click “Two-Factor Authentication”

Step four

Click on your email address in in the upper right corner and click “Account settings”.

Unable to see your exchange balance?

There are a few things that could prevent your bot from synchronizing the funds of your exchange. In most cases, it’s because the browser that you use has "auto-fill" enabled. This means that the browser fills in certain text fields themselves. There are three things you can do:

  • Disable autofill.
  • Use incognito mode of your browser.
  • Use a browser that you don't use often.

And you're done! Check our community forum where users share their bot settings.
