Loopring

Loopring is the first scalable DEX protocol built with zkRollup for Ethereum. Loopring Exchange is the first decentralized trading platform built on top of the Loopring protocol. Loopring Exchange is accessible at Loopring.io.

Using the connector

To use the Loopring Exchange connector to trade using Hummingbot, you will need to provide your API key, private key, and other details.

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.

Note

Existing API keys used previously in Loopring v1 API are now invalid. Users must generate new keys from the latest version of the exchange.

Retrieving Loopring API keys

  1. Log into your account at https://loopring.io/ using one of the supported Wallet extensions (MetaMask, MEW Wallet, WalletConnect, Authereum, Coinbase Wallet).

Tip

If you have not yet created an account see this page.

  1. Click on your account's ETH address in the top right.

  2. Click on Export Account.

  3. Sign the requested message that will be presented by your wallet extension of choice.

You will be presented with your account information, which will include entries for "accountId", "exchangeAddress", "privateKey", and "apiKey". These values associated with these keys correspond to the required information to connect the Loopring connector.

Make sure to keep this information private and do not share it with anyone. However, you can review this information at any time by clicking on Export Account again.

Warning

Please keep your EdDSA key pair and ApiKey strictly confidential. If you leak this information, your assets will be at risk. Loopring Exchange's UI and its API will never ask you for your EdDSA private key.

More information about Loopring Key Management can be found on this page.
