Upgrading to Bybit's Unified Trading Account
Altrady is only supporting UTA Spot (no margin) for the moment. USDT-perps will also be supported soon.
For now, existing non-UTA accounts still work.
Bybit will eventually swap all accounts to UTA
It's one-way: once the account has been converted to UTA it cannot be changed back.
It is possible to upgrade your main account or subaccount to UTA without the other accounts being affected. Each is upgraded separately.
Although UTA for Spot supports margin trading, Altrady does not support margin trading for Bybit and it must be turned off on the UTA (see below).
If margin trading is left enabled and a margined order is placed on the exchange: the order will often not be editable in Altrady; wallet balances can be negative or incorrect; and margin fees are not shown.
To set up UTA and connect it to Altrady:
Upgrade the whole account (main account) or a subaccount in Bybit
Turn off Spot Margin trading in Bybit
Create a new API key in Bybit and replace the current one in Altrady. Edit your existing key so that your trading history will be kept
More information on creating a Bybit API Key
Refresh/sync balances for the account on the Portfolio page or in the Trading widget
Trade as for usual Spot trading. UTA makes no difference as Margin trading is turned off.
Bybit Futures is not yet supported for UTA.
