To get started with a seamless trading experience on Altrady, you need to connect your cryptocurrency exchange with our platform. In this guide, we have illustrated 13 easy steps to help you connect your 'Kraken' exchange account with 'Altrady' via API.

Kraken boasts more than 4 million active users worldwide and offers around 40 different cryptocurrencies to choose from 💡

Let's Begin

Step-1: Enter Kraken URL in your browser and log in to your account.



Step-2: Click on the profile button from the navigation bar, select the Security option, and then select API from the dropdown menu.



Step-3: You will be redirected to the API Key Management page. Simply hit on the Add Key button to start the API generation process.



Step-4: Now assign a name to your API key under Key description and set the Nonce Window.

Nonce Window is the time allowed for an order to be processed in milliseconds. Setting Nonce Window at 1000 would mean that you are allowing 1000 milliseconds (1 second) for orders to get processed.

It is recommended to set the Nonce Window at 5000 (5 seconds) to ensure that orders are provided with ample time to be processed during the busy hours.



Step-5: Select the key permissions based on what you wish to do in Altrady. You can also set the Key expiration, Query start date/time, and Query end date/time. Hit the Generate key button once done.

You can make the key permission selections of your choice but it is recommended to implement the below-provided settings while selecting the key permissions (to avoid the possibilities of technical errors) -

The Deposit and Withdraw permissions should be disabled
The WebSockets API permission should be enabled
All the permissions under Orders and Trades should be enabled



Step-6: You will be redirected to the new page with your API key and Secret Key (Private Key) appearing on the screen. Copy these two codes, hit the Save button, and visit Altrady website.

Save and store this key in a safe place. You can only view your API private key in this step.







Step-7: Login to your Altrady account and click on the Settings icon appearing on the left-hand side of the interface.



Step-8: Select the Exchange account API Keys option from the left sidebar to add the API keys.



Step-9: You will see a message on the screen - "You don't have any API keys configured yet" because we have not added the keys. Now you will have to add the keys by creating a secure vault first. Hit the Create a secure vault button.

To keep your API keys secure, Altrady will create a secure vault to store your keys in. The vault will be locked with a generated password 🔒



Step-10: A pop-up will appear on your screen that will generate a random 5-word password for the vault. Copy the password and enter the Third word from the password into the Enter 3rd word field. Hit the Continue button.

Please make sure to store this password in a safe location.



Step-11: A new window shall appear on the screen where you will observe the +Add API key button. Click on this button to connect your Kraken exchange API keys.



Step-12: A new pop-up will appear on your screen for creating the API Key. Assign a name to your API key, select Kraken from the exchange dropdown menu, and enter your Kraken API key and Secret key generated at Step-6. Hit the Save button after entering all the information.



Step-13: Click on the Add button.



Step-14: You have successfully connected your Kraken exchange account with Altrady. For this guide, we have labeled Kraken API as "Kraken".



Users should start with crypto-trading on Altrady through Kraken by adding one key pair (API Key and Private Key) and when the pair works, they should add an extra key pair. This is a recommended practice because Kraken API keys have strict rate limits per key. By using multiple keys, Altrady can spread the load on Kraken servers across the multiple keys to make sure that the rate limit is not reached and your trading game does not stop.

To add the extra API keys, simply login to your Altrady account and click on the Settings icon appearing on the left-hand side of the interface.



Select the Exchange account API Keys option from the left sidebar and then click on the edit icon appearing in front of the saved Kraken API key.



A new pop-up window will appear. You will need to hit the +Add Extra Key button and enter the extra key pair (a new set of API Key and Private Key). To generate the new pair of extra keys, repeat the instructions as outlined from Step-1 to Step-6. After entering the extra keys, hit the Update button.
