How To Link your FTX.com API Keys so you can copy trades or be copied | 10 Simple Steps

Hey Alphas,

Alpha Impact has recently launched FTX.com integration on our web app. Read more to find out how to link your FTX account in 10 simple steps!



What is an API key?

An application programming interface (API) key is basically a code used to identify and authenticate an application or user. When you provide this key to Alpha Impact, our servers will be able to connect to your FTX exchange account and reflect your FTX.com account information on your Alpha Impact profile.


Step 1:

Log into your FTX.com account on desktop (not mobile), and click the settings icon in the top right corner


Step 2:

Click on ‘API’ on the bottom left of the page and click on ‘Create API key’


Step 3:

Copy the API key that is generated


Step 4:

Go to your Alpha Impact Account (web app) and log in



Step 5:

Click ‘Link Portfolio’, then select ‘Link More’


Step 6:

Give your FTX portfolio a name and description

Tip: Give your portfolio a name by which you can identify it! For example, ‘Day Trading’ or ‘Investing’.


Step 7:

Select FTX as your choice of exchange to integrate, input sub-account information if you are using an FTX sub-account.


Please Note: For users using multiple FTX sub-accounts, you can link only one sub-account to Alpha Impact at one go. To link your other FTX sub-accounts, you will need to repeat this 10-step process again.

For the sub-account connection to be successful, the sub-account name given on Alpha Impact must match the name of your FTX sub-account.



Step 8:

Paste in the FTX API key previously copied in step 3



Step 9:

Go back to FTX.com and copy your API secret key


Step 10:

Go back to your Alpha Impact account, and paste the API secret key copied in step 9

And you’re done!

Do remember to make your portfolio public to other Alpha Impact users to gain followers and begin monetising your trades!

Once you have successfully linked your API keys, your FTX portfolio performance, composition, trades, and movements should be displayed on your account dashboard within a few minutes. If you are experiencing any issues, please contact us at team@alphaimpact.fi.
