How to use Kraken API key

https://github.com/veox/python3-krakenex/blob/master/examples/kraken.key

sample Python code:

>>> from time import sleep

>>> import krakenex

>>> from pykrakenapi import KrakenAPI

>>> api = krakenex.API()

>>> kraken = KrakenAPI(api)

>>> api.load_key(‘KrakenPass.txt’)

>>> ETH = float((kraken.get_ticker_information(‘ETHUSD’))[‘a’][0][0]) + 2

>>> print(ETH)

1882.3

>>> response = kraken.add_standard_order(pair=’ETHUSD’, type=’buy’, ordertype=’limit’, volume=’0.007′, price=ETH, validate=False)

>>> print(response)

{‘descr’: {‘order’: ‘buy 0.00700000 ETHUSD @ limit 1882.30’}, ‘txid’: [‘xxx’]}

>>> response = kraken.add_standard_order(pair=’ETHUSD’, type=’sell’, ordertype=’limit’, volume=’0.007′, price=ETH, validate=False)

>>> print(response)

{‘descr’: {‘order’: ‘sell 0.00700000 ETHUSD @ limit 1882.30’}, ‘txid’: [xxx’]}
