BTC DCA & Coinmate | How to set up an API key

    This article will guide you through the steps to generate your API Key and save it in the BTC DCA application to start using regular and automated bitcoin exchanges and withdrawals as you will set up them in the app.

    Before starting to follow the step-by-step guide, complete the registration of an account.

    Sign In or Sign Up

    Sign in to your Coinmate account (Don’t you have an account yet? Sign Up)

    Populate the New API Key form as follows:

    • Select all actions (Account info (A), Enable for trading (T), Enable for withdrawals (W)) to enable all functionalities of the BTC DCA app
    • Note: For withdrawal security reasons, it is highly recommended to select “Enable for withdrawals to template addresses only (WTAO)” as well and set up in Coinmate allowed addresses for withdrawal
      • A withdrawal template can be set up meanwhile the process of manual withdrawal
    Coinmate template withdrawal
    • Label of your choice
    • Limit access to the IP address set to “” to restrict access to your account to the BTC DCA server only
    • For withdrawals, we do recommend ticking the last checkbox (Enable for withdrawals to template addresses only)
      • Before your first automated withdrawal is executed you will have to make 1 manual withdrawal to this BTC address (to create a template in Coinmate exchange), following ones will be performed automatically by the BTC DCA tool


    Submit the form and complete the 2FA authentication using a code from your Authenticator app (e.g. Google Authenticator).

    Use 2FA

    Your API Key pair is now generated.
