How to connect to KuCoin

To allow your bot to interact with KuCoin, you will need to create an API Key. This key acts as a connection between Cryptohopper and the exchange, enabling your bot to perform tasks such as placing automated orders and accessing your balance for its calculations. Essentially, the API Key serves as a way for your bot to communicate with the exchange and execute the actions necessary for automated trading.

Step one

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

Step two

Verify your account and get started on the API by navigating and clicking on your name in the upper right corner. Click “API Management.

Step four

Create a unique name for your API Key, generate a strong API Passphrase, select "Spot Trading", and choose “Yes” for the IP Restriction. No other API restrictions need to be enabled, and Cryptohopper will never ask for "Withdrawal" or "Universal Transfer" rights. In the print screen below you can also find the correct permissions.

The IPs you need to fill in can be found in your Cryptohopper account. Navigate to your Cryptohopper account and find the baseconfig. From there, click on the tab labeled "exchange".

Click “Next” and go to the security verification.

Unable to see exchange balance

If you are unable to see your exchange balance, there may be a few issues preventing your bot from synchronizing with your exchange. One common cause is "auto-fill" being enabled in your browser. To fix this, you can try disabling auto-fill, using incognito mode, using 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.
