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.
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 API settings as you can see in the screenshot below:
Perfect! Time to generate the keys. They are simply three unique text strings that will enable blox to retrieve information about your balances or trades: API Key, Secret Key and Passphrase. Just like we said earlier, with OKEx it couldn’t get any easier.
To start creating your API Keys, simply click on “Apply for v3 API”. Just for your information, Okex upgraded its API from v1 to v3 increasing features and functionalities.
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 type your Passphrase. This field supports 6-32 characters (upper & lower cases letters, excluding space & symbols). After that, select the ‘Enquiry’ permission. Blox won’t access your assets at all and with this option we will only be allowed to read your account information, but we can’t touch your tokens.
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’.
ast 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 “+” 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 and passphrase 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:)
Auto-Sync integrations are the future of cryptocurrency management and now OKEx another part of our offering. Needless to say, if you find any inconvenience during this process, do not hesitate to contact us via email at [email protected] and our Customer Support Team will be there for you!
