API keys

Crypto Pump Tool (the Bot for short) interacts with the exchange through the Exchange API. API keys are required to gain access to the API. You have to create the keys in your Bittrex account, under the "Settings-> API Keys" section:

Bittrex API Keys

The keys must have the following rights: READ INFO, TRADE LIMIT, TRADE MARKET.  For security reasons, WITHDRAW must be disabled!

When you start the Bot for the first time, you have to enter Bittrex API keys. The Keys consist of a Key and Secret pair. Key is a public key, it is used to register your copy of the Bot. Secret is a private key, used to sign orders. The private key is stored locally on your PC in encrypted configuration file BotConfig.bcfg, which the Bot creates automatically. The private key is never sent over the Internet! To further protect your keys, you may set a password, this password will be requested every time the Bot is launched. The password is also used only locally.

After entering the keys, click "Register Api Key" button. If the keys are entered correctly, the Bot will establish a connection with the exchange server, you will see your registration number in the settings window and status "Connection: OK" in the Bot's main window.

If the connection could not be established, the log window will contain an error code. In this case, double-check the API keys; make sure that there are libraries ssleay32.dll, libeay32.dll in Bot's folder or in your system folder.


Next time you launch the Bot you do not need to re-enter the keys; connection to the exchange will be established automatically.
