Step 6.b (Optional) Enable Symbol Whitelist

If you only trade specific token pairs, you can enhance the security of your API keys even further by activating token symbol whitelist. This will prevent a hacking technique known as “Contra trading”. Contra trading is a market manipulation tactic by which a hacker generates enough trading volume to move the market in their desired direction and profit from that move. Generally, it involves lower cap tokens, as they require less volume to produce price movements. Enabling Symbol Whitelist will prevent hackers from using such tactics with your API keys.
