Hi there 👋
Step 1: Log in to your Poloniex account and go to the "Settings" tab.
Step 2: Go to the API Keys sub-tab on the Settings tab.
The API page will display this screen because you have not yet activated and configured any API keys.
Step 3: Click on the "Enable API" button and enter your 2FA code to access the next steps.
Once entered, you will need to confirm the action via email sent to your email address associated with your Poloniex account. Please check for a message from email@example.com to quickly confirm this action. As a security measure, the link will expire in 15 minutes.
Once confirmed, you will be redirected to Poloniex with a new notification.
Step 4: Now that the API has been activated, you need to create your new API key by clicking on the "Create a new key" button.
You will need to enter your 2FA information once more for this step.
Step 5: Once you have entered your 2FA information, you will need to verify the creation of your API key via an email sent to the address associated with your Poloniex account.
As in step 2, please check if you have received a message from firstname.lastname@example.org to confirm this action. Once you have confirmed the creation of your API key via email, you will be redirected to Poloniex where you will be presented with your API key and API secret.
💡 You will notice that withdrawals are disabled by default and you do not need to enable the withdrawal feature. Waltio only requires read permissions.
💡 It seems that from now on, it is no longer possible to retrieve a history older than one year on Poloniex.
Step 6: Go back to Waltio and enter your API key.
⚠️ 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.
⚠️ 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 Poloniex 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 Poloniex 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! 💬
