MEXC Global: What is an API key? Features and usage


MEXC can be applied to automatic trading etc. by using API key. By using this key, you can use the MEXC system. These keys can be obtained by creating an account.

What is an API key?

API keys allow external systems to use MEXC’s program functions. It is quite convenient because you can use MEXC’s functions in external trading systems and obtain transaction information within MEXC. This is a very useful feature as it allows users to use MEXC functions more conveniently. API keys are very useful when you want to view automated trading, BOT, or exchange transaction history.

How to get an API key

First, open the MEXC home screen. Click the red frame at the top right of the screen to expand the menu. Click on “API”. As explained above, API keys are very useful when you want to view the trading history of automatic trading, BOT, and futures on exchanges, so if you want to use these functions, please use them for trading. Also available as an app.

What you can do with the API

What can you do by generating and linking these API keys? As I have already mentioned, this key is suitable for bot and automated trading, and this key can often be used at overseas exchanges. It is suitable for those who want to buy and sell futures etc. with BOT.

automated trading

Most people who use the API are using automated trading systems. Unlike discretionary trading, where you buy and sell at your own discretion, automatic trading is a system trade that eliminates mental influences, so it tends to be more stable and profitable. However, if there is a strong trend, the risk is high because it will result in a full deficit.

trade data

With the API, you can take data such as a system that determines how much money is flowing in the market and liquidation that determines how many people have cut losses. Being able to acquire this kind of data will be important in considering the strategy for the next trade.


By using the API, you can build a system that sets conditions and sends emails when certain conditions are met. For those who are always busy and can’t see the chart, by setting an alert, you will be able to know the entry timing.

Precautions when using the API

There is also a caveat to the MEXC API. Please pay attention to the following points.

hacking risk

If you have an API key, you can acquire asset status and trade without a login ID or password. Conversely, if you tell this key, there is a risk that it will be used without a login ID and password. Once hacked, it can easily be stolen.

date of expiry

The generated API key has an expiration date. Please note that it is only for 90 days. However, you can extend it, so be sure to extend it before it expires.

scam tools

If you are forced to buy fraudulent tools, your API key may be stolen and your assets may be illegally withdrawn. Just as Chinese-made products have made headlines in recent years by stealing personal information, so have the tools.
