Hi there 👋
In order to use the API, you must generate a unique API key pair.
Step 1: Login to your Kraken account.
Step 2: Click on your name in the upper right corner.
Step 3: Select "Settings" then "Security" and "API" in the drop-down menu.
Step 4: Select the "Add Key" tab in the API panel.
Step 5: Generate API keys
The following authorizations are required:
Query Ledger Entries
💡 Last year, only the "Query Ledger Entries" authorization was required.
Now, we need to see your balance to facilitate your reporting and also for our future dashboard features that will be available at the end of February.
So, if you have already created an API key on Kraken before November 30, 2021. You need to change the permissions of the key to add "Query Funds). We have just written a tutorial about this.
Step 6 : Go back to Waltio and enter your API key.
💡 Synchronization can take anywhere from a few minutes to a few hours. While waiting for us to retrieve your Kraken deposit and withdrawal transaction histories, you can deposit files from other accounts or connect other APIs.
💡 It is possible to add multiple Kraken APIs on Waltio.
⚠️ If you delete your keys or change the permissions, it will complicate the analysis.
1 - If you have already deleted your keys then we will not be able to synchronize
automatically. You will have to create a new one.
2 - If you have already modified your keys then we put in "disabled" mode the APIs encountering errors.
3 - If you correct afterwards, you will have to contact the support service via the chatbot at the bottom right of your screen because we perform weekly synchronizations.
4 - The deletion of the keys automatically leads to the loss of all the modifications (recording of labels, prices, etc...) made on the transactions recovered via API.
💡 Kraken rollovers are fees associated with holding an open position and can be earned or charged. Generally, therefore, they are deducted from the portfolio value by Waltio. Rollovers can be negative, positive or equal to 0 and carry a fee. If the amount of rollovers is greater than or equal to 0, then Waltio creates a deposit transaction. Otherwise, Waltio creates a withdrawal.
It is always possible to view the fees on the transactions.
💡 OTC transactions cannot be retrieved and must be added manually
⚠️ If you add files containing trades read by API, then the relevant trades will be duplicated on Waltio. Our API gives you the choice if you already have Kraken API files in your Waltio account.
It will ask you to choose between two options:
1 - The recovery of all data since the creation of your Liquid API account.
2 - The recovery of all of your data since the date of your last transaction on your Waltio account.
If you have any other questions, do not hesitate to contact us via the chat just at the bottom right of your screen! 💬
