About Bybit

Bybit is a Singaporean cryptocurrency exchange founded in late 2018. It offers spot trading, inverse futures, as well as USDT- and USDC-based futures. The platform also includes its own P2P marketplace. One of the reasons why it is attractive to scalpers is its low trading fees for all futures contracts, with a maker fee of 0.01% and a taker fee of 0.06%. Bybit provides a platform for crypto enthusiasts to trade various instruments. It supports integration with CScalp, allowing users to leverage its features for efficient trading on the exchange.

Create "API Keys"

To connect CScalp to Bybit, you need to generate "API Key" and "Secret Key" on the exchange website. These API keys act as the equivalent of a login and password. A trader can use up to 5 pairs of keys.
Attention! To create API keys on Bybit, you must set up two-factor authentication (2FA) through Google Authenticator.

Select "Connect to Third-Party Applications" and in the dropdown menu below choose "CScalp".
Afterward, provide a name for the key and activate permissions by enabling the following options: "Orders," "Positions", "USDC Derivatives Trading" and "Trade".

Click on the "Submit" button once again.

Copy or note down your secret key. Once you close the window, you won't be able to view the "API Secret" key again. The "API Key" will always be accessible in your personal account. After saving the API, click on the "Confirm" button. The key creation process is now complete.
Note: API keys without an IP address will expire three months after creation. You can extend the key's validity by editing it, which requires entering the Google Authenticator code. To maintain the validity of keys without an IP address, you need to extend them every three months. Additionally, you have the option to create new keys.
Please be aware that seven days after changing your password on Bybit, the Secret Key will no longer function.

Note: When the "Trade" permission is enabled for the spot market, you can use the same API keys to connect to both the spot platform and the futures platform.
