Adding an API Key from Bitstamp
To add Bitstamp exchange, you will have to use the API key generated with your Bitstamp account.
What is an exchange API Key?
API keys are unique IDs that enable automated trading using your account on a specific exchange. When using an API key, you are not sharing any personal account information (e.g. username or password). This ensures that any digital assets you may have on your exchange account remain secure.
Generating an API key on Bitstamp
Step 1: Log-in to your Bitstamp account
Step 2: Open Account settings and click API Access from the Security tab.
Step 3: Click on New API Key to open API Key settings
On this page, you can set what permissions your API key will have on the DPP Platform. In order for the API key to properly function on the DPP Platform you will need to enable the following permissions:
1. User transactions
1. Open orders
2. Cancel orders
3. Buy limit/market orders
4. Sell limit/market orders
Everything else should be left blank.
Please note: To ensure maximum security of your digital assets, we do not recommend enabling permissions for Withdrawal and Liquidation.
Step 4: Generate API key and Secret Key
You will need to enter a 6-digit 2FA authentication code to generate your API Key and Exchange Secret Key.
Step 5: Log into the DPP Platform and select Account overview >My Exchanges > Add Exchange
