Blocktane

Launched in 2020, Blocktane was designed and built in partnership with Tritum and operated a high-performance digital asset exchange infrastructure designed with technology and principles from traditional financial markets to serve clients with equal confidence and quality as any other financial institution.

Private keys and API keys are stored locally for the operation of the Hummingbot client only. At no point will private or API keys be shared to CoinAlpha or be used in any way other than to authorize transactions required for the operation of Hummingbot.

Tip

For copying and pasting into Hummingbot, see this page.

Creating Blocktane API keys

  1. Log in to your account at https://blocktane.io/, then click your profile > My API keys (If you do not have an account, you will have to create one and verify your ID.)

Tip

You must enable 2FA in your Blocktane account to create the API key. How to enable 2FA?

  1. Create a new API key

  1. After clicking create new API key, enter 2FA code, and the key will be generated

Make sure you store your Secret Key somewhere secure and do not share it with anyone. Your Secret Key will only be displayed once at the time when you create the API.
