How to Connect Your KuCoin Account into Vestinda

In order to connect your account from Kucoin Exchange to Vestinda, you first need an API KEY.

An API KEY is a secure way to allow Vestinda to read your balance and automate investments. It acts as a secret authentication token and you can control the level of access. Vestinda needs read access to track your portfolio and trading access to automate your investments. No withdrawal access is needed; we recommend you keep this permission unselected.

Step 1

Login to your Kucoin account and go to Account API Management section from the menu. If you don’t have a Kucoin account yet, consider opening one here.

Step 2

Once you got to the API key management list, first click on Create API.

Step 3

On the new page:

  • Choose a name for your API Key, something like Vestinda to identify it easier.

Step 4

Once you click the Next button, you will have to put in your Trading password, ask for the code via email and introduce it + introduce the Google Authenticator code.
