WebSocket Authentication

HMAC Authentication

  • Endpoint: wss://ws-feed-pro.btcturk.com
  • The WebSocket feed provides real-time market data updates for orders and trades.
  • The WebSocket feed uses a bidirectional protocol, which encodes all messages as JSON objects. All messages have a type attribute that can be used to handle the message appropriately.
  • Please note that new message types can be added at any point in time. Clients are expected to ignore messages they do not support.
HMAC login mechanism for WebSocket:
From BtcTurk | PRO go to ACCOUNT>API Access
In the form select WebSocket, enter you are IP address and submit. This action will create public key and private key to achieve WebSocket login.
