Connect your Bot to Poloniex


In order to connect your bot to Poloniex, you will need an API key. Think of an API key as a bridge between Cryptohopper and your exchange, which allows your bot to do things like place automated orders and read your balance for its calculations.

Step one. Go to the exchange website, and create an account if you haven't already.

Step two. Create your API.

Click on the little wrench icon and then on API keys.

Make sure that your API access is enabled, and click "Create New Key".

Step three. Configure the API key.

Cryptohopper will need trading access in order to successfully trade automatically! IP whitelisting should also be unrestricted.

Step four. Add the API to Cryptohopper.

Navigate to your Cryptohopper account and find the baseconfig. From there, you can click on the tab labeled "exchange".

Select your exchange, fill in your API key, and you’re done! Don't forget to fill in your passphrase, otherwise the API key won’t work.

Give the Hopper a moment to link everything and your balance should be loaded.

Unable to see your exchange balance?#

There are a few things that could prevent your hopper from synchronizing the funds of your exchange. In most cases, it’s because the browser that you use has "auto-fill" enabled. This means that the browser fills in certain text fields themselves. There are several things you can do:

  • Disable autofill.
  • Use incognito mode of your browser.
  • Use a browser that you don't use often.
  • Disable password managers, as this can prevent your hopper from synchronizing.

And you're done! Check our community forum where users share their Hopper settings.
