Set up 2FA
Before you can create API Keys, you will have to set up 2FA (Two Factor Authentication). Go to your Profile and select Security. Under 2-Factor Authentication, you will see the button to enable 2FA. Please check this link for more information.
Create API Keys
The API key is needed to send data from Crypto.com to Cryptohopper and vice versa. This will allow your bot to trade automatically, while your funds will always remain safe on your exchange.
Creating an API key generates a public and secret key to access the exchange at the API level. The secret key is revealed when first created; however, upon refreshing the page or navigating elsewhere, the secret key will be hidden for security reasons. If you forget your secret key, you need to create a new one.
Click on your Profile (upper right-hand corner), then select Settings, and then API Keys. Select Create a new API key, enter the description/label, and enter your 2FA code.
Ensure that you have selected “Enable trading” and “Unrestricted”.
Enter the keys in your bot.
Copy the API key in your bot and you're done!
Unable to see your exchange balance?
Several things prevent your bot from synchronizing the funds of your exchange. In most cases, the browser that you use has "auto-fill" enabled.
This means that the browser fills in specific text fields themselves. There are four things you can do:
- Disable auto-fill
- Use the incognito mode of your browser
- Use a browser that you don't use often.
- Using a password manager? Disable this for Cryptohopper, or it'll auto-fill in the part of the password.
