Creating Your Binance API Key

Step 1:
Navigate to your account.

Step 2:
After sign in, select your profile icon in the top right corner, and select API Management from the dropdown.

Step 3: Create API Key
You will be prompted to create a new API Key. Enter a label for your key, and click Create. (This label can be anything.)

Step 4: Enter Verification Codes

Next you will need to enter both an e-mail and 2FA verification code. Click Send and you will receive the e-mail code in your inbox. Retrieve the 2FA code from your authenticator app and after entering both codes click Submit.

Step 5: Edit Restrictions

You will see a green banner notification that says API key created and then it will display your new API Key and Secret Key.

Step 6: De-select Trading Access

Click Edit Restrictions and then deselect Enable Spot & Margin Trading (Remember, CoinLedger requires read only API access. You do not need to grant CoinLedger permission to enable trading.)

Then make sure that Can Read is selected.

Step 7: Save restriction settings

Click Save and you will be prompted to enter your 2FA code again.

Step 8: Enter Into CoinLedger
Navigate to Step 1. Import. Select Add Account then choose the Binance tab on CoinLedger. Click on Auto-Import then enter your API Key and API Secret into CoinLedger. Click Connect.
