Before we start with API keys.
Kraken has introduced a new Kraken Beta version that does not include the API keys creation feature. So to create new API keys, you need to switch back to the classic:
1. Go to Kraken
Log in or create a new account on https://www.kraken.com/.
2. Follow to the API page
Click on the profile icon on the top right corner, click on "Security" then "API":
3. Click on "Add key"
4. Name your key
When you have multiple APIs, a proper name helps to manage it.
⚠️IMPORTANT: Please set the "Nonce window" value to 2 000 000!⚠️
5. Select permissions
You must enable them as in the screenshot below:
Important: Please Ensure "Nonce Window" is set to 2000000 (2 million)
