How Investment Importing Works
Altpocket.io and investment importing
One thing that I had in mind when I created Altpocket.io was that I dreamed to have some kind of highscores on the platform, now I knew that this wouldn’t be possible because when you add your investments you can write any values that you want. So I was thinking of ways to solve it and this is how I solved it.
Verified investments are investments that has been automaticially grabbed from either Bittrex or Poloniex !
Using this will make it so you won’t have to put in all your orders by hand, simly create a fresh API key on either of the platforms and give the key read rights (so we only can read your previous orders).
Importing from both bittrex and poloniex is fully supported as of 18th of May 2017, however on the 21st of June 2017 we launched our investments system Two.0 which is just like the old system but entirely rewritted and restructured.
Previously when you imported it would only import buy orders and sell orders in the BTC market. However with this update, we now also support USDT and ETH markets.
Please keep in mind that the system is still in its early stages, the importing process is not plain and a lot of things goes into consideration when importing.
The system now also imports your deposits, withdrawals and balances to give you a more finish and accurate view of your holdings and investments.
Step 1: Generate an API key on Bittrex or Poloniex
The very first thing you want to do is to generate an API key for us on either Bittrex or Poloniex, to do this you will need to have 2FA enabled on your Bittrex/Poloniex account. Begin by either going to Poloniex or Bittrex and head to the API key section.
BITTREX: When you are at the API keys section, click Add Fresh Key and then enable Read Info on it, then inject your 2FA code and click Generate Key.
BITTREX: When the key is generated, you will be given a public and private key, use these two on the next step.
Poloniex: When you enabled API access on your account you will be given a public and private key, these are the keys you will use on Altpocket.
Poloniex: Be sure to disable trading and withdrawal so we only can read data.
Step Two: Submit the keys to Altpocket.io
Now once you have the private and public key, click API keys in the main menu.
Now you should see a window where you can come in your API keys to either of the exchanges, select your exchange using the tabs and inject the API combination you got from step 1.
Step Three: Import your investments to Altpocket.io
You are almost done, all you have to do now is to go to your investments (https://altpocket.io/investments), click the + sign button to open the investments menu then click the button respresenting your exchange.
When you clicked the import button for your exchange your import will be put into the queue. Once your import has commenced you will recieve a thrust notification in the bottom right corner telling you that the import has began, you will also recieve a shove notification when it is ended.
Once ended, go to your investments again or reload the page if it haven’t already, you will now see your investments.
Once you have imported your investments, they will be marked as verified, Verified Investments can not be edited.
Step Four: Done!
Your investments are now imported to our system, all investments that are verified are eligible for our highscores.
