The note is like a name for your API keys so you can easily recognize them on the Bitget exchange. You can set it to “Dash 2 Trade” or anything else. 


The passphrase is necessary to regain access to your API keys’ settings in the future. Keep it safe and don’t share it with anyone.


Permissions should be set to “Read-Write”. This is necessary for the Dash 2 Trade bot to work properly.

Finally, from the list of permissions options, next to “Spot” select only “Trade”. This is the only permission you will need to provide. It will allow Dash 2 Trade to interact with your spot trading account on Bitget.


Click “Next” when you’ve filled everything out.

Your Bitget crypto exchange API keys will now be stored permanently in your Dash 2 Trade account until you decide to update or remove them.


For the foreseeable future, any bots you set up to trade on Bitget will require no additional API key configuration.


Note: Crypto exchange terms and conditions are subject to change. In the future, you may be required to revisit your Dash 2 Trade bot configuration and perform updates.


You’ve successfully generated your Bitget API keys and connected Dash 2 Trade to your Bitget account.
