👉 TL;DR: As of September 1, 2023, API v2 will cease to function. To prevent your bots and manual orders from being cancelled, transition to Gate API v4 immediately. You can generate new API keys on Gate.io and choose v4 in the API key types.
Why Change My API Keys?
As part of Bitsgap's relentless pursuit of innovation and improvement, we have embraced a new level of synergy with Gate.io through the transition to API version v4 as of late August. This signifies that, starting September 1, our platform will exclusively support the version 4 API keys. Why this choice? Simply because APIv4 offers comprehensive trading operations, robust security authentication, and adherence to the renowned OpenAPI Specification industry standard.
Peeling away complex technical jargon, the key takeaway is that this upgrade is a game-changer. It's not just about being more secure but also being … well … better! ;)
A timely change of your API keys ensures you continue enjoying the synergy of both platforms without skipping a beat. The exchange API key, unique to every user, is your reliable companion in this process. Don’t worry, it’s still super safe, safeguarding your personal data and preventing any funds management, including withdrawals and deposits.
