Here’s a list of the things that you’ll need:

Getting the information needed from Bittrex

I. What is an API key and secret?

An API key is a piece of cryptographic information that will enable Tradedash to do things in Bittrex on your behalf (ex. getting your account balance or placing orders). Once you’ve entered this information, you won’t even need to sign in to Bittrex anymore unless you want to.

II. How do we protect your Bittrex information?

We use standardized AES encryption to store your API keys safely on your own local machine. The only way to get to it is with your password. This means that we cannot access it without your permission.

1. Let’s get started – Sign in to Bittrex

Sign in to Bittrex

3. Enable 2 factor authentication

(If you already have 2FA set up, skip to step 4)

Bittrex requires you to have 2 factor authentication enabled in order to generate API key’s. This enhances the security of your account. Here is Bittrex’s own guide on how to enable this, both on web and mobile.

Add permissions to your API key. You don’t need to add withdraw permissions for now, we don’t provide any services that require this permission.

  1. How come that Tradedash doesn’t accept my copy-paste of my keys? I do can copy-paste them to Word but not to Tradedash. And when I type them manually into Tradedash allways gives an error…
