How to create and set up Binance.US API key

In this article, we will show you how to create, configure, and connect your Binance.US API key to the Bitsgap platform.

Bitsgap is a trading platform that allows you to work with numerous cryptocurrency exchanges from a unified interface with access to additional tools that are not available on the exchange.

All trading operations are created and processed by using an exchange API key which is unique for every user. An API key is a safe and reliable way to use a platform because it does not give access to your personal data and prevents any funds management (withdrawals & deposits).

1. Log in to Binance.US

Log in to your Binance.US account or create a new one.


2. Go to the API Management page

From your account settings (top-right corner), navigate to the API Management page.


3. Label your API key

Give your API key any name (it is your personal choice) so you can easily understand that this key is connected to your Bitsgap account. When ready, click [Create].


4. Confirm the creation of API keys

The exchange will send you a confirmation email to your email address. Open the email and confirm API key creation.


5. Match API key restrictions

Now you need to Edit restrictions on your API key so our platform receives access to process your trading activity on your Binance.US account. Please, click [Edit restrictions] as shown below and follow the instructions below.

Here is the list of required permissions:

  1. Can Read on (active by default).
  2. Enable Spot Trading on.
  3. Unrestricted IP access on.
  4. When ready, click [Save].


6. Copy your API key and Secret key

Before we edit the permissions of your API key, make sure to copy your API key and Secret Key somewhere safe. Otherwise, after editing API key permissions, the Secret key becomes hidden, and you would need to start over again.


Log in to your Bitsgap account and go to the My Exchanges page, where you can find an option to connect your Binance.US account. Click [Add new exchange].


8. Select Binance.US exchange from the list and enter your API and Secret keys

In the pop-up window, please do the following:

  1. Select the Binance.US exchange.
  2. Paste your API key.
  3. Paste your Secret key.
  4. Click [Connect].

Please make sure you are connecting the Binance.US exchange instead of Binance Global.


9. Connection check

If everything is done correctly, you will see Binance.US added to the list of your connected exchanges with the Connected status and the trading balance available on your account.
