Connecting CScalp to the dYdX Core Network

Create a cryptocurrency wallet

To trade on dYdX via CScalp, you need to connect a cryptocurrency wallet to the exchange, create API keys in the wallet and enter the keys in the terminal.

More than 100 cryptocurrency wallets work with dYdX, including MetaMask, Trust Wallet, Coinbase Wallet and others. The full list can be found on the official website of the exchange.

In the instructions, we will use MetaMask as an example.

Connect your cryptocurrency wallet to dYdX

Go to the official website of dYdX and click "Connect wallet". Note that the main network (in the upper-left corner) must be selected on dYdX. Also in MetaMask, the Ethereum network must be selected.

When linking to the wallet, move the "Remember me" switcher to the active position so as not to pass the binding at each launch of the exchange. Ready! We connected our wallet to dYdX. Now let's connect it to CScalp.

Create API keys in your cryptocurrency wallet

Open MetaMask and click on the pop-up menu icon. Then click "Account details". The public key (ApiKey) is displayed. To get the secret key (ApiSecret), click "Export Private Key" and enter the password from MetaMask. Copy the keys to enter them into CScalp.

Do not transfer the secret key to strangers, the security of your wallet depends on it. The process of generating API keys in other wallets may differ.

Connecting CScalp to the dYdX TestNet (Demo Account)

Connecting to the CScalp test dYdX network is similar to connecting to the core network, except for some differences. Let's consider connecting to a demo account in more detail.

To connect CScalp to a dYdX demo account, you need to select a test network in MetaMask. To do this, open the wallet and click "Ethereum Mainnet Network" in the top menu. Then select the Ropsten test network.
