We want to add as many exchanges, pools and services as we can to Openclerk (the underlying open source project). The requirements for supporting a new service are:
Mining pools that are run on existing mining pool software, such as MPOS and mmcFE, often automatically provide users with read-only API keys for balances and hashrates. These pools can easily be added to Openclerk.
This approach is an easy way to add read-only API keys to a service that either has no API, or already supports a full trade API. In this approach, a different API key is generated for each account, and this API key is explicitly read-only.
This means the service does not need to support revoking keys, managing multiple keys, managing key permissions etc. However, this does mean that once an API key is shared, it cannot be revoked.
For example, Litecoin Global provided a read-only API key for each account (illustrated).
This approach involves much more work but is the most powerful approach. In this approach, a service supports multiple API keys, with each API key given different permissions - including a read-only "Get Balance" permission. API keys can also be revoked at any time, making this the most secure approach as well.
For example, Havelock Investments allows multiple API keys to be created, each with different permissions (illustrated).
