Auto import from Bitfinex (Cryptocurrency)
In this post, we will explore how to pair your TradesViz account with Bitfinex. This post assumes that you have read the basics about auto importing in TradesViz.
Once you select your trading account and broker as "Bitfinex" in the trade auto-import page, a popup box will appear when you click on the "Connect account" button.
The purpose of this blog post is to guide you to get this API code from the Bitfinex website. Here are the steps you need to follow:

Note: This connection only gives us READ-ONLY permission to your account to access your orders/trades. We do not have any other permissions. We do NOT have any trading/transfer of coins/assets permissions.
That's it! At the moment, we only support <crypto>USD/CURRENCY-type spot transactions. We are working towards more crypto integrations and supporting the full crypto environment.
You will now be able to enter trades like BTCUSDT, ETHUSDT, etc., in your TradesViz.com account and it will be tagged as Cryptocurrency and you will also be able to see charts for it.
Please let us know if you have any questions or concerns about the Bitfinex auto-sync integration and also about our general Crypto asset type addition to TradesViz!
