Create an account at Poloniex

First, we're going to create your Poloniex account. Go to Poloniex.com

After registration, you will have to verify your account. This is to prevent money laundering.

On Poloniex, your Hopper will trade in terms of Bitcoin. The main goal on Poloniex is to collect more Bitcoins.

Navigate to "Balances" and go to "Deposits & Withdrawals".

Search for Bitcoin and click Deposit. You will see your Bitcoin Deposit address. Send your Bitcoins to this address.

Double check that you've selected Bitcoin and the address you are sending your Bitcoins to.

Don't have any Bitcoins? get them at coinbase!

To trade on your behalf, we need permission from you. Therefore, we need an API key.

Go to the "Setting" drop-down menu and click API Keys.

We will need your API key and your secret key.

*IMPORTANT

We do not want withdrawal permissions! We merely need to read the information and make limit orders. This also boosts your security as a customer!
