OKEx is, one of the biggest exchanges in the crypto-space and it goes without saying that, it had to be included in blox. If you have an OKEx account, you can now connect it to Blox and track your balance and trades automatically. No more Excel sheets or manual operations!
Do you want to know how to do it? Pay attention to this article because we will explain it step-by-step.
Get Your OKex API Keys
As usual, to sync your exchange with Blox, you need to generate an API key first. Each exchange has different options and procedures, but with OKEx everything it is as simple as it gets.
The first obvious step is to log in to your OKEx account and hover your mouse over your email address to access your account settings as you can see in the screenshot below:
Once you are in the settings section, you will find a sidebar on the left side of the screen where you’ll need to access to ‘My API’ category. You should see something just like this:
Perfect! Time to generate the keys. They are simply two unique text strings that will enable blox to retrieve information about your balances or trades. Just like we said earlier, with OKEx it couldn’t get any easier. Simply click on “Create new API” button located at the top right of your screen.
A pop-up window will appear where you’ll need to fill in the information and select the relevant permissions. Give the keys a name and select both ‘Withdraw’ and ‘Trade’ permissions. Blox won’t access your assets at all, but to make sure the integration works you’ll need to tick both options.
Finally, enter your Google 2FA code, which is requested to create and modify API keys.
That is everything you need to do to get both keys, that’s it! It should look like what you see in the next screenshot, so copy them because you will need to paste them later on to finish your ‘auto-sync’.
Last step! Enter you blox account on your computer or mobile and add a new sync. To do this, you will need to have a portfolio set up. In case you need assistance, we recommend to read this tutorial.
Adding a new sync should take no more than 15 seconds. If you are using the web app, click the “+ Wallet/Exchange” button located at the top right of your portfolio page. However, if you are using our amazing mobile app, tap the “+” button at the bottom right of the screen to make the sync form appear.
Since OKEx is an exchange, select the relevant option from the drop-down list and paste your keys inside. Please, double check for blank spaces before and after the keys because it can lead to a sync error. Also, do not forget to give the integration a name so you can better identify it in your portfolio. When you have everything filled out, click the ‘Add’ button and enjoy:)
