This page explains how to get an API key for Bitstamp's transaction history (Trades/Withdrawals).
To find out how to download trade history file, please check here.
Note: If you establish API connectivity after uploading trade history via trade history files, any trades that happened during the same "minute" as the last trade uploaded via the file may end up as duplicates. For example, if the last trade uploaded via the file has a timestamp of 12:34:00, the API connection would fetch any trades with the timestamp of 12:34:00 onwards.
■How to get API Key
1. Click the user icon in the upper right and select "Settings".
