Step 4: You'll get an Add An API Key popup. Please go about the following steps:
4a. Fill our your API Key nickname. This can be anything you'd like. For this example, I typed in "TaxBit" for that field. Also note that this field isn't an item needed when connecting your Coinbase Pro to TaxBit.

4c. Copy your Passphrase and paste it into the Passphrase field within your TaxBit Coinbase Pro API Exchange page.
4d. You can leave the IP Address field blank.

Step 5: A 2-Step Verification popup will appear in order to proceed. Please follow through by entering in the code using the MFA method that you have set up.
Step 6: Once passing the 2-Step Verification, you'll receive your API Secret.
6a. Copy your API Secret and paste it into the Secret field within your TaxBit Coinbase Pro API Exchange page.
6b. Select "Done".
Step 7: However, we're not quite done yet! We have the final piece of the puzzle. Once clicking "Done", you'll be brought back to your API page. This is where your API Key is located. Copy your API Key and paste it into the Key field within your TaxBit Coinbase Pro API Exchange page.
Step 8: Land back on your Coinbase Pro API Exchange page in TaxBit where you'll hit "Add Account" > Enter the fields with your Coinbase Pro information > Go ahead and hit "Connect"
