An API key allows a 3rd party application or platform to access your transaction data or execute transactions. API keys are typically used to integrate a portfolio/tax reporting service so it can pull data to calculate your taxes.

Creating an API key on the Digital Surge app takes just a few short minutes.

Step 1: Click the drop down menu and select API key.

Step 2: Click create API key

Step 3: You can then create Read/Write and Read Only keys. If you are unsure which type is needed, we recommend creating Read Only keys.

Step 4: You will then be asked to enter your 2FA code for security. Once confirmed you can copy your API key for use.

When you no longer need your API key it is recommended to delete it from your account.
