Creating an API key for Binance spot trading.

Support Portal  »  Knowledgebase  »  Viewing Article

The API key for spot trading on Binance is not suitable for futures trading. You need to create a separate key for futures trading (API key for Binance Futures USDS-M and API key for Binance Futures COIN-M).

Now we have a new way to quickly create an API key for the Binance exchange!

Binance FASTAPI is a convenient, fast and secure way to create API keys. With FASTAPI, you can automatically generate and bind API keys in a couple of clicks without having to enter them manually. 

If futures trading is enabled in your Binance account, then using Binance FASTAPI, 3 separate API keys are created at once — Spot, Futures USDS-M, Futures COIN-M. 

When FASTAPI is connected, a white list of IP addresses is used, which ensures the safety and security of user funds. All trading operations will be allowed only from IP addresses from the white list. In addition, the FASTAPI connection cancels the 90-day validity period of the API key.


To use this function, you need to select the Binance exchange on the API key addition page and click the link "FASTAPI connection", you will be redirected to your Binance account, where you will need to approve access. If you are not logged in to the exchange, then you will need to log in first, it is better to do this before creating an API key.



Next, approve access to your account to create an access API.


After successful completion of the operation, you will receive the message "The key 'FastAPI key' has been successfully created" and you will be able to use the created keys for the Binance Spot, Futures USDS-M и COIN-M.
