Adding a Kraken connection


For the Kraken exchange, you must configure each user with their own unique connection. Each connection requires the user's own credentials (API Key and Private Key) supplied from the Kraken exchange. Kraken exchange connection credentials (API Key and Private Key) are configured via the exchange's website.

For additional information on creating a Kraken API Key and Private Key, refer to their support site:

TT Crypto Gateway

TT's connection to the Kraken exchange routes through the TT Crypto Gateway. When setting up a Kraken connection, you must set the Exchange field to Crypto Gateway and the Type field equal to Kraken.

Note For the Kraken exchange, you must configure a separate connection for each user. Each connection must map directly to a specific user's API Key and Private Key given by the exchange.
