This help article shows you how to create an API key within Binance. You can use this key to connect your account, and automatically import your transactions.

CryptoTrader.Tax only needs Read-Only or View access to import your trade history. This permission does not give access to your private keys nor the ability to move your funds. Learn more about API access in this article here.

Update - As of 2/27/2020 The Binance API Importer will now automatically import your dust conversions.

How To Create Your 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, CryptoTrader.Tax requires read only API access. You do not need to grant CryptoTrader.Tax permission to enable trading.)

Then make sure that Can Read is selected.
