# Linking your API key

In order to publish modules to the blockchain with our CLI, you must first generate an API key. See Getting Started.

After you generate your API key, you need to add it in the CLI. To do this, type:

eggs link <your key>
1

This will save your API key on your local machine. Now you will be able to publish modules to the blockchain without logging in ever again.

Do not share your API key with anyone.

If you want others to be able to publish a new version of your module, don't worry. We're working on a better solution!
