How to get an API key for Bittrex

This page explains how to get an API key for your Bittrex transaction history.

If the transactions fetched via the API and the transactions in the downloaded file are different, we cannot determine which is more accurate. Please check the transaction details thoroughly after they are fetched via the API.

We have confirmed that the history of some coin pairs is not being fetched via the API (as of March 14, 2022, BTG-BTC and AUR-BTC transactions in 2017). Please upload transactions that cannot be fetched via the API as custom trades.
