Recap supports integration with Bittrex through read-only APIs. Once connected, we pull in your transaction history and set up a realtime connection to your account. 

Unfortunately, we are slightly restricted by Bittrex's API so it may be necessary to import some your legacy transactions via CSV (your will only have to do this once).  We explain what to look for and how to go about this in the steps below.

Step 1 - Click on "Add Connected Account" and select Bittrex from the dropdown menu, then click Next and choose a name

Step 2 - Log into Bittrex to create your API Key and secret

  • Go to your account (A) and select API keys in the menu bar (B)

  • Click "Add new key..." (C) 

  • A new key will be added as shown below. Toggle the permissions so that Read info is active then click Save (D)

  • Open the Google Authenticator App on your phone and copy the authenticator code for Bittrex into the field in the Bittrex app and click confirm.
    (Bittrex would have prompted you to download this app when you set up Two-Factor Authentication).

  • Your keys will be created and listed under the Key heading. Make sure to record these as you will not be able to see the secret key again.

Step 3 - Back in the Recap app, fill in your API key and secret and then click next

Voila! Your Bittrex account is now connected. 

We strongly advise that you go through the next steps to ensure that your data is complete...

Fixing incorrect balances and missing transactions 

As, explained the Bittrex API is restrictive and may not return legacy transactions. If your balances look incorrect, then you will need to import your legacy transactions. 

Bittrex support can give you your legacy transactions in three separate files: deposits, withdrawals and orders.

Step 1 - Go to Bittrex support and click the "Submit a Request" button to file a support ticket for all your historic deposits, withdrawals and orders. 

Ask for the following in your support ticket:

Hi Bittrex Support, 

Can I get all of my legacy transactions for my account in the following csv formats:

Order history with columns: OrderUuid, Exchange, Type, Quantity, Limit, CommissionPaid, Price, Open and Closed.

Deposit history with columns: Id, Currency, Amount, Confirmations, LastUpdatedDate, TxId, and CryptoAddress.

Withdrawal history with columns: PaymentUuid, Currency, Amount, Address, OpenedDate, Authorized, Pending, TxFee, Canceled and TxId.


The Bittrex support team should get back to you very quickly, 

Step 2 - Once you have received your legacy data, in Recap click "Manage Historic Data" on the Bittrex account

Step 6 - For each of the three CSV files received from Bittrex support, select and import them

Sorted! The missing data should now be visible in the new account card you created.
