How Do I Get A Gemini Access Token?

How Do I Get A Gemini Access Token?

To obtain a Gemini access token, you’ll need to create a Gemini application and register it with the Gemini API. Here’s a step-by-step guide:

  1. Create a Gemini account: If you don’t already have a Gemini account, you’ll need to create one. Go to and sign up for a free account.
  2. Create a Gemini application: Once you have a Gemini account, you can create a Gemini application. Go to and click on the “Applications” tab. Click on the “Create Application” button.
  3. Provide application details: Enter a name for your application and select the type of application you’re creating. You’ll also need to provide a description of your application and the URL of your website.
  4. Generate client ID and client secret: Click on the “Create” button. Gemini will generate a client ID and client secret for your application. These credentials will be used to identify your application when you make API calls.
  5. Save your client ID and client secret: Keep your client ID and client secret safe. You will need them to generate access tokens.
  6. Create an access token: To generate an access token, you will need to make an HTTP POST request to the Gemini OAuth token endpoint. The request must include the following parameters:
    • grant_typeauthorization_code
    • client_id: Your Gemini client ID
    • client_secret: Your Gemini client secret
    • redirect_uri: The URL that Gemini should redirect to after the user has granted your application access
    • code: The authorization code that the user provided when they authorized your application

The response from the token endpoint will include an access token. This token can be used to make API calls on behalf of the user who authorized your application.

Here is an example of an HTTP POST request that can be used to generate an access token:

Content-Type: application/x-www-form-urlencoded


Replace your_client_id, your_client_secret, your_redirect_uri, and your_code with your actual values.

Once you have an access token, you can use it to make API calls to the Gemini API. For example, you can use the Gemini API to get market data, trade cryptocurrencies, and more.

Here is an example of an HTTP GET request that can be used to get the current price of Bitcoin:

Authorization: Bearer your_access_token

Replace your_access_token with your actual access token.

I hope this helps!
