Creating a Binance Spot API Key

Creating an API key on Binance is a straightforward process, but it's essential to ensure security and proper configuration for seamless integration with Gunbot. Follow these steps to create your spot API Key on Binance:

Step-by-Step Guide

  1. Log into Binance: First, log in to your Binance account.

  2. Access API Management: Navigate to your Profile and select 'API Management' from the dropdown menu.

  3. Create API: Click on 'Create API' and choose 'System Generated'. This will initiate the creation of a new API key.

  4. Label Your Key: You have the option to give your API key a specific label. This helps in identifying the key later on.

  5. API Security Policy: Binance has an API Security Policy which you can disable by unchecking the yellow box at the top of the API page. However, it's not recommended to disable this as it poses a security risk. If necessary, you can temporarily disable it, especially if you're unable to whitelist your API key to a static IP address.

  6. IP Whitelisting (Optional but Recommended): For additional security, restrict your API Key to your IP address. This step is highly recommended to safeguard your access.

  7. Complete the Setup: After configuring your API key, ensure all settings are correct, and then complete the setup process.
