How to Create an API Key on BitMEX
You will need a BitMEX account and first login to your account. To create an API key, navigate to the settings page. Once you’re logged in, click on your email/username at the top right to open the menu, then click on “Account & Security”.
On your Account & Preferences settings page, click on “API keys”.
This will bring you to the page where you can create an API key for your BitMEX account. To create an API key, select the “Key Permissions” for your API key and click on the “Create API Key” button.
To create an API key with trading permission, select “Order” for key permissions.
To create an API key with read-only permission, select “-” for key permissions.
Once you click “Create API Key”, you should see a popup saying that “API Key Created.” if it was successful. Take note to keep your API key pair in a safe place (the secret key shown below is for example purpose only and has been deleted).
