To allow your bot to interact with HitBTC, 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.
If you haven't already, go to HitBTC's website and create an account.
Verify your account and get started on the API by navigating to “Settings” and then to “API Keys”.
Click on “New API Key”. To connect your HitBTC account with Cryptohopper, you'll need to copy the API Key and API Secret displayed on HitBRTC and paste them into the corresponding fields on Cryptohopper. Once you've done this, be sure to save your Base config settings.
Provide a name for your API Key, enable all options except “Withdraw cryptocurrencies” and then click on "Save". 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.
