CryptoTrader.Tax only needs "Read" or "View" access to import your trade history. This permission protects your accounts. Learn more about API access in this article here.

Step 1:

Login to your HitBTC account.

Step 2:
Click the setting icon in the top right corner of the page.

Step 3:
To enable Two-Factor Authentification (2FA), click on Security tab and under Two-Factor Authentification (2FA) section select Add GAuth method.

Write down your backup code, click the checkbox and then click Confirm.

After that, open Google Authenticator on your mobile phone and scan code that you see on your screen, and click Next.

Then enter the six-digit code from your device.

To finish the 2FA setup, open a confirmation email and verify it.

Step 4:

Click on the API Keys tab and click the New API key button.


Note: If you have subaccounts, you will need to create a separate API key for every one of them by selecting them in the Select Account menu. Later simply import every subaccount in a separate HitBTC tab inside CryptoTrader.Tax


This window is displayed after API key is successfully created.

It is important to save API Secret and API secret somewhere because they are visible only while creating the API Key.

After that, click on the Order book, History, Spot balance checkbox, and enter 2FA.

Step 5:

Navigate to the HitBTC tab inside CryptoTrader.Tax and click Auto-Import, enter your API Key and API Secret into the provided text box.
