IP WHITELIST REMINDER: Please make sure to include the step of adding the IP address in your whitelist when creating your API key.

As of January 2024, Quadency has migrated previous API support for Coinbase and Coinbase Pro connections to the new Coinbase Advanced API, simply referred to now as Coinbase.

If you connected your Coinbase account before the migration, you may need to replace your old API keys to ensure your account is accurately syncing with Quadency.

Pro Tip: Coinbase makes most of their USDC/USD trading pairs available with USD only via API, so you can take advantage of their free USDC-USD conversion feature if needed.
