The only capability which AlgoCryptobot can do on your exchange account is ONLU buy and sell coins according to the trading rules you set up. Furthermore, you have complete control to revoke the access at any moment in time.
Since each exchange has different processes to create and enable the API keys, below you will find a quick summary of instructions on how to connect to the most popular exchanges.
First log in to your Coinbase Pro account, and select the Profile information in the upper right. There you will see the API Menu as one of the options.
Select “New API Key’ and make sure that it is connected to the Portfolio you want to connect to the AlgoCryptobot. (Pro Tip: We actually recommend you create a new portfolio so this way it is very easy to analyze and manage)
Them, Coinbase Pro will ask you to:
Provide a name for the API
- Grant the needed permissions

Upon confirming with your 2FA, Coinbase will show the Secret Key. This won’t be shown again, so make sure you copy it down.
The last step is to click on ‘DONE’ and you will see the API Key.
Copy the Passphrase, Secret Key, and API Key to the AlgoCryptobot Exchange screen.
