How to Setup an Account using Bybit

A cryptocurrency exchange is like the stock market for cryptocurrencies. It allows people to trade among other cryptocurrency holders for a commission or bid-ask spreads. Security, speed, and quantity of trading pairs are the most valued criteria to select what Exchange to use.


Bybit is one of the best cryptocurrency exchanges today and the Infinity trade engine can interface with it, to set up your account follow these steps below:

Step 1: Set up your Bitcoin wallet.

The first thing you need is a wallet to hold your bitcoin. Each wallet has a unique Public and a Private Key that works as a storage for your cryptocurrency. A Public key is for transactions like sending and receiving a bitcoin while a private key is a secret code used to sign transactions in the ledger for blockchain validation.


We recommend using Exodus wallet. To create your Exodus wallet:


Open your Browser > Go to Exodus.io > Download (desktop/mobile wallet) > Install the software > Launch


Step 2: Buy Bitcoin


We choose Bitcoin since it is the most dominant digital currency in the market today with the highest value and trading volume. Growth and Liquidity is very important for automated trading.


To Buy Bitcoin:


Open your Exodus Wallet > Click Receive > Copy the address > Paste in the form below 


Just follow the prompts below and fill out the form, we will connect you to our partner and you can receive your Bitcoin in the next 24 to 48 hrs.


Step 3: Set up Proton Encrypted E-Mail


You need to have an Encrypted E-mail account end to end, it is the most secure way to communicate between yourself, the trade engine, and us. You need two E-mail accounts, one for the short account, and another one for the long account.


To set up your Encrypted E-mail addresses:


Open your Browser > Go to Protonmail.com > Sign up > Select free plan > Choose any name that includes short or long so that the engine can recognize your short and long accounts > Create Password > Skip the recovery mail > Create Account > Enter Captcha > Click Complete Setup > Finish 

Then you need to do the steps again for the second email account.


Step 4: Setup Proton VPN


A VPN is a virtual private network that gives you privacy and anonymity online by creating a private network out of your existing public internet connection. VPN hides your real IP address so your activities are hidden and it allows you to customize your location via IP. Virtually you can be in another country without having to get up your seat.


To set up your VPN:


Open your Browser > Go to Protonvpn.com > Get Proton VPN Now > Select Free plan > Login using your proton E-mail > Downloads > download the software based on your operating system > Install > Launch 


On the VPN, Select Netherlands then Connect, you need to set your location to the Netherlands since the trade engine is in the Netherlands. You need an IP from the same country. 


Always use the VPN before doing any trading activities, or have the VPN start with windows so you won’t forget to turn it on.

Step 5: Setup Bybit Account

Before you start, make sure you are connected to your VPN under the Netherlands server. Bybit is not allowed in the USA.

Go to Bybit.com > Register > Enter your email address and Password, use any of the two proton emails you just created > Verify the registration by going into the email address you have chosen > Go back to Bybit.com and Sign in

To deposit your bitcoins into your Bybit account:

Click Assets > Find bitcoin among the list of assets > Click deposit > A wallet address will open > Copy the wallet address > Open your Exodus bitcoin wallet > Send > Paste the BTC address from Bybit > Enter the amount > Confirm

Step 6: Create API Keys on Bybit:

API key means “Application Programming Interface” key. It is a key primarily used to securely identify the calling program, which is the trade engine. So that it can access and remotely trade on your behalf. 


To create an API Key:

Login to your Bybit account > Click on your ID name on the upper right corner > A pull-down menu will open, click “Account and security” > Find  “Google authentication” > Settings 

A pop up will appear asking for the code sent to the email you provided, enter the code in field provided > Confirm

A QR code will appear, use Google Cloud security scanner app to scan the QR code to get the OTP code > Enter the code in the field provided > Confirm 

Click API Management > Create New Key > Choose a name for the API key > Create 

After the creation, you can see the list of API keys. Find the name of the API you just created.

Your API Key is your ID and Private Key is your password. We will ask for this information from you directly so we can establish a connection to the trade engine and start trading. Never give these keys to anyone else.  


If, for some reason you want to stop the engine from trading:


Go to API Management > Select the existing name of the API Key > click delete


That’s it, you’re done setting up your Bybit account. If you have questions or clarifications, you can ask us directly at Trademining.io.
