Before you start trading, you need to enter the exchange API key and secret, as well as the trading fees level for each exchange.

To enter API keys, go to Profile > Exchanges.

Select your exchange and fill in all the fields for this exchange.


The master key is just the API key you've registered for an exchange.

Using the same registered key for the "master key" and "key" fields is the most common way to connect to an exchange.
