Updated over a week ago

Create an API key

1) First of all, log in to your OKX account. If you don't have it, it's time to open it.

*the promotions can be changed through time.

2) By moving the mouse over the Profile icon, select the API option in the list.

3) Please link your mobile number or Google Authentication if you haven’t done it yet. It’s an obligatory step to be able to create an API key.

4) The Main account page will be opened. Please click on "Create V5 API key".

5) Select “Linking third-party apps” and find “Coinmatics” in the “App Name” list.

After the third-party app is successfully bound, its IP address will be bound by default. Only this third-party app can use this API key to call the ports.

6) Now let's fill the following fields:

API name — the name for an API key you link to Coinmatics account;

Passphrase— it is required to secure your key (if you lose or forget it, you'll have to create a new API key). Please, save it, otherwise, you won't be able to link your key to Coinmatics;

Permissions — please, enable Trade (in addition to the Read permission).

7) Double-check the data and click “Confirm”.

8) The final step is to insert the codes for Email verification and from the Authenticator app. To get an email code please click "Send code".

7) You will see a pop-up with the API key information (you need to copy the API key and Secret key). There is a special button to copy the API details — Copy API Info.

Please, check the permissions once again — the Trade option should be enabled.

8) Your new API key will appear in the list of keys.

Please note that Coinmatics supports only Spot trading on OKX and can copy deals on the Unified account only. The deals on the Classic account will not be copied.

Link OKX Account to Coinmatics

To add your OKX account to Coinmatics, open the Accounts page and click on "Add Account".

Then select the OKX exchange.

If you already have an account, you can skip the first 2 steps. If you don’t have one, you will see a short guide on how to create an account and an API key.

Then enter the API key details: API key, secret key, passphrase (check it in OKX API section). Once you fill all the fields, you can submit it by clicking on "Add Account".

If you follow all the steps, your account will be added to Coinmatics. The word "Spot" will be grey if you enable the Trade permission in the API key settings. If it’s orange, you need to check your settings on the OKX exchange account once again.
