If your exchange API keys expire (such as on Huobi or Binance every 90 days) or when you may experience an error message, such as "Invalid API Keys", the best solution is to update your saved API keys for the linked exchange account. 

It is really important that you update your existing connection and you don't connect it as a new exchange account to 3Commas. If you add the same exchange account as a new linked exchange and delete the old connection in 3Commas, you'll lose your trading history and will disrupt active trades you may have open!

Also, the following errors will require you to update your linked exchange account with a new API:

  • Exchange account is banned.

  • API key is invalid

  • API keys are no longer valid or incorrect

Here is what you need to do.

Create a new API using the exchange's website
