Creating an API key on the KuCoin website

Creating an API key on the KuCoin website

To connect the TSLab trading platform to the KuCoin exchange, you need to create an API key. Go to the API key creation page (Account -> API Management).

On the API Management page, click the Create API button. On the Create API page, fill in the required fields:

  • API Name - the name of the new API key, can be anything;

  • API Passphrase - the password for the API key. Save your password, as if you lose it, you will need to create a new API key. The password will be used in the future when connecting TSLab to the exchange.

Next, you need to fill in the following fields: Spot trading, Margin trading, Futures trading.

Note! At the moment, only trading on the KuCoin futures market is available in TSLab. To allow the program to place orders on the futures market, enable the Futures trading option. If you plan to place trading orders with leverage, then in this case you need to activate the Margin trading option. Spot trading is temporarily not supported.

  • IP address (optional) - binding the API key to a specific IP address.

To confirm, click on the Next button

At the final stage of creating the API key, a secret key will be specified. Save this secret key as you will need it when creating a connection in TSLab. Once the API key has been created, it will be impossible to obtain information about this secret key.

After the new API key has been created, you can view the key information in the Account -> API Management section.

Next, you need to apply for a free license on the TSLab website. More details in the article:
