This page explains how to get an API key for KuCoin's transaction history.

* Futures Trades are not supported and they need to be uploaded as custom trades manually. For details on how to create custom files, please refer to here.

 

■How to get API key

1. After logging in, click the circled icon in the upper right corner and click "API Management".

 

2. Select "API Management". Click the "Spot/Margin API" tab, and click "Create API".

 

3. Populate the Name field (any name is fine), and the API Passphrase field (this is used when connecting the API to Cryptact).

For API Restrictions, select "General", and for IP Restrictions, select "No". Click "Next".

 

4. Two-Factor Authentication

 

5. After the 2FA verification process, the API is created. Take note of the Key and the Secret displayed on the screen.

* The Secret is displayed only once upon creation. Please copy it and keep it somewhere safe. If you miss this opportunity, you will have to create another API key.

 

6. On Cryptact's "Connect to KuCoin exchange" screen, enter the API key, API Secret, and Passphrase (which you created in step #3). Click "Submit".
