Setting up a Deriv application
For the reviewer, Links in this section will be provided in the future.
If you don't have a Deriv account yet, you can easily create one by visiting our signup page or using the new_account_virtual API call. It's completely free. And if you have an account already, please log in using your account details. To avoid any accidental loss of funds during testing, we recommend using your demo account instead of a real account.
To earn markup, get a Deriv real account to receive your monthly earnings. You can also create a real account using new_account_real or new_account_maltainvest API calls.
To create Deriv applications, you'll need an API token with the Admin scope for the account you wish to use for your application.
How to create a Deriv API token
To create your API token, simply go to the Dashboard and select the Manage Tokens tab. From there, create a new token that matches the access level needed for your application's features.
To create a new API token, follow these steps:
- Select the scopes you need.
- Provide a name for your token
- Click Create
Alternatively, you can create an API token via the api_token API call.
