Connect a Centralized Exchange
How to connect a centralized crypto currency exchange to your UpBots account for trading, Algo bots and portfolio tracking.
Adding an API key to UpBots is generally the same for all the exchanges we currently support with the exception that it's also possible to add sub accounts if you are using Binance. Just make sure when creating the API key to disable transfers/withdrawing and don't forget IP white listing for Binance API. If you want to use Algo bots, you will need to make sure "allow trading" or "allow spot trading" is turned on for the API key.
In the written and video tutorials below we will be creating and adding an Binance API key to UpBots.
UpBots Currently supports Portfolio tracking on Binance, BitMEX, Huobi, Kucoin and OKex, as well as, Algo bots for Binance and Kucoin and finally manual trading on Binance and Kucoin. We are continually developing and adding more support for centralized exchanges, so expect more updates soon!
When using Binance please be aware that old Binance API keys are only valid for trading for 90 days. After this time you will need to login to your Binance account and once again update the setting "enable spot and margin trading" should you wish to continue trading on Binance via UpBots. This is especially important for Algo Bots to prevent any issues when the spot and margin trading permission is reset every 90 days.
New rules have been introduced for Binance. It is important to whitelist our IPs in order to be able to trade on Binance from UpBots.
