Auto import trades from KuCoin (Cryptocurrency)
In this post, we will explore how to pair your TradesViz account with KuCoin. This post assumes that you have read the basics about auto importing in TradesViz.
Once you select your trading account and broker as "KuCoin" 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 KuCoin website. Here are the steps you need to follow:
- Log into your KuCoin account
- Click on the account icon on the top right corner and click on "API management"
- Now click on the "Create API" button
- Name your API key and also enter a memorable passphrase (you need to remember this/note it down)
- Next, make sure Trade and Transfer are UN-CHECKED in the API restrictions and also "No" is selected under "IP restriction"
- Complete the authentication steps and on the final page you will see your API key and API key secret
- Enter the API key, API secret key, and the passphrase in the TradesViz connection page where you see the box above and click "Connect"
Note: You need to do this process again if you want BOTH your spot trades and futures trades to be synced - i.e, you need 1 connection for spot trade and 1 connection for futures trades because they both have different API key pairs!
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 KuCoin auto-sync integration and also about our general Crypto asset type addition to TradesViz!
