The Bitpanda Global Exchange provides both Read and Trade key permissions when creating API keys. For all details on permissions, please read our official Bitpanda Global Exchange API documentation.


The Read permission includes all GET endpoints. It allows the key to read data (i.e. account balances, market prices, order and transaction history).


The Trade permission allows the key to place or cancel orders, as well as retrieve trade data. This includes POST /orders and several GET endpoints. 

Additional permissions

Additional API key permissions may be added at a later date. We advise that for further information and understanding of the Bitpanda Global Exchange API keys, please keep an eye on this very article and have a look at our official Bitpanda Global Exchange API documentation
