How to connect to EXMO with API Keys

To allow your bot to interact with EXMO, 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.

You might encounter an error in Cryptohopper's onboarding process when connecting to EXMO, 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.

Step one

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

Step two

Choose a username, fill in your email address, phone number, password and then click on “Accept terms & conditions”.

Step three

Click on “Create API Key”

Step four

Provide a name for your API Key, enable the "Trade" option, and then click on "Create".

Step five

To connect your EXMO account with Cryptohopper, you'll need to copy the API Key and API Secret displayed on EXMO and paste them into the corresponding fields on Cryptohopper. Once you've done this, be sure to save your Base config settings.

Step six

Next to your newly created API Key, you will see a button “Activate”. Click on it and you will receive an email with the last step to activate your API Keys (this can take some time). Give the bot some time and your funds will be shown.

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.
