Generating an API Key

Before being able to sign any requests, you must create an API key via the KuCoin website. Upon creating a key you need to write down 3 pieces of information:

  • Key
  • Secret
  • Passphrase

The Key and Secret are generated and provided by KuCoin and the Passphrase refers to the one you used to create the KuCoin API. Please note that these three pieces of information can not be recovered once lost. If you lost this information, please create a new API KEY.
