Bitfinex, founded in 2012, is one of the biggest trading platforms in the industry, offering services for cryptocurrency traders and global liquidity providers. Thousands of traders use it to buy cryptocurrencies and trade them, now, you can track all your past, present and future movements automatically in Blox. In this tutorial, we will give you a step-by-step guide to help you how to sync your Bitfinex account in a matter of seconds.
First of all, in order to connect your Bitfinex account to Blox, you’re required to generate an API key. The unique Key is a set of two text strings that will enable us to read your Bitfenix account information and display it in a clean and organized way on your blox dashboard. Please, take into account that Blox works in “read-only” mode, which means that we can’t modify or touch your assets in any way.
Get your Bitfinex API address
To generate the key, you need to login to your Bitfinex account, go to the top right corner of the screen to your account settings. There, click on “API”. This step can be easily seen in the screenshot below, otherwise, you can access the API settings directly from Bitfinex settings screen.
Now you are ready to generate your key. If you take a look at the next screenshot, you’ll notice that you must tick all the “read” permissions and select a name for the generated key. You don’t need to select any “write” permission because we do not need or use any of them. If you do select unnecessary fields, our platform will detect it and ask you to remove those permissions altogether. The reason for that is security, we do not want to expose you to any unwanted risks. Once you mark the relevant fields simply click on “Generate”.
At this point, you will have two text strings: an API key and API secret key. That’s all the information we need from you in order to complete the sync. Below you can find an example of how the keys should look like:
