How to Connect Your Kraken Exchange Account with Altrady


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


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


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


- Now assign a name to your API key under Key description and set the [Nonce Window] at the botto of the modal.

Nonce Window is the time allowed for an order to be processed in milliseconds. Set the Nonce Window at 5000 (5 seconds) to ensure that orders are provided with ample time to be processed during the busy hours.


- Select the key permissions as shown in the image below.
Optionally, set the Key expiration, Query start date/time, and Query end date/time.
Hit the Generate key button once done.

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


- 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.


- 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 to add the API keys.
Than +Add API key


- 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.
Then click the Save button.


- You have successfully connected your Kraken exchange account with Altrady.
If you need to Edit your API keys or Add an "Extra key" click the Edit icon next to your Kraken account.

Start with crypto-trading on Altrady through Kraken by adding one key pair (API Key and Private Key) and after testing that the key works, 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 or throw exchange errors.

To add the extra API keys, follow the same instructions as above. But instead of creating a new API Key, Edit your existing key and click the +Add Extra Key button.

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.


- Next for added security, you can add an IP whitelist.

- Copy the IP addresses seen in the IP whitelist section of Altrady here:

The same IP whitelist must be used for the Primary key and any Extra Keys.
