API keys implemented

The Bitstamp team is pleased to announce that we have implemented API keys on our site.

To access our new API security feature simply go to "Account" and select "Security" from the side menu. Click "API Access" and select from a variety of Permissions for your API.

You can now select between two different filters which you can use separately or combine them for maximum security; you can either lock your access to a specific IP address or lock bitcoin withdrawals to a specific bitcoin adress.

Please be advised that our old API access will no longer be available after 31st October 2013.

We are convinced that our new security feature will prove to be a welcome addition to the security of our users' accounts.
