Recap supports direct integration with Bitstamp via read-only APIs. Once connected, Recap's desktop application will pull in all of your transaction history and set up a realtime connection to your account. 


For your security and privacy, the integration with Recap and Bitstamp is a direct connection between the Recap app and Bitstamp. Recap as a service does not hold any credentials that would allow us to connect to your accounts. (For more information regarding our security and privacy standards, check out our dedicated article here). We also use end-to-end encryption to ensure that the only person who can see your data is you.

To connect your Bitstamp account your will first need to create an API key. This key will allow the Recap app to create a direct connection to your Bitstamp account. 

Step 1 - Login to Bitstamp

Step 2 - Navigate to 'Settings'

Step 3 - Record the Customer ID - this is one of three credentials you'll require to connect your account in Recap

Step 4 - Next click "API Access" in the left hand menu

Step 5 - We're now going to create a new API key (If you already have API keys for other services, you may need to click "New API Key" in the top right of the screen)

You will see a series of address filters. Ignore these as the permissions we will be adding are read only. 

Step 6 - In the Permissions section, toggle "User transactions" and 'Account balance'

Step 7 - Click 'Enter 2FA and Submit' (if you don't have 2FA enabled just click "Submit")

Step 8 - You will then be presented with an API key and secret. Activate your API key, and confirm the activation email

Step 9 - Enter your API Key and Secret Key into Recap along with your Customer ID

And we are finished! Recap will now synchronise your account history from Bitstamp and maintain a real-time connection, updating your transactions, withdrawals, deposits and more as you go.
