If there is a trading history that has been uploaded in the past via a file downloadable from the exchange, the API will only retrieve the trading history after the most recently uploaded date to prevent duplicate entries.

When obtaining the history of the relevant transaction types via the API, please turn on the checkbox and then add the API key. If there is a history that has been uploaded via a file, the default setting for the checkbox is off. Please be aware.


We cannot assume any responsibility for unauthorized use or other accidents that occur due to API connection, and any damages incurred to customers. Please make sure to use the API key designated by us when connecting.
