Connecting to an exchange

Before you can start trading with Gunbot, you'll have to connect Gunbot to the exchange first.


Please ensure first that the exchange you're trying to set up is linked to your license already. You'll have to edit your license first, link the new exchange (or edit an existing one) and then you can add the exchange here.

Settings in detail

For power users

It is possible to use a master/slave API key, this allows you to use a different api key for trading than the registered (master) key. You can enter the master/slave keys in config.js directly, or using the code editor in Gunbot. The master API key always has to correspond to the one you have linked/tied to your license and the slave key has to be from the same exchange account as to where the masterkey originates from.
