How to connect to Coinbase Advanced with API Keys

To enable seamless interaction between your bot and Coinbase Advanced, Cryptohopper offers two options. You can either utilize Fast Connect, which involves logging in with your Coinbase Advanced account directly on Cryptohopper (the most convenient option), or create an API Key. Both methods establish a secure connection between Cryptohopper and the exchange, empowering your bot to perform essential tasks such as automated order placement and access to balance information for precise calculations.

You might encounter an error in Cryptohopper's onboarding process when connecting to Coinbase even if your API Keys are correct. The most common reasons include having no funds in your 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.

Unable to see exchange balance

If you are unable to see your 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, 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.
