Connect via Kraken API

Add API connectivity to Huobi Kraken by entering the generated API key and secret via Connect to your exchanges and click "Submit".

If you don't have sub-accounts, it's generally fine to leave it blank.

If you do have sub-accounts, please enter any sub-account name of your choice. In that case, transactions from sub-accounts will also be reflected separately as separate transactions.

Note that if you use the same API key with different sub-account names for API integration, it may be recognized as different API keys, causing duplicate entries.



Please note that we will not be held responsible for any damages caused by unauthorized use or other accidents due to API connections. When connecting, please be sure to use the API key specified by us.
