With this article you will be able to:

  • create the API key you need to link your Binance account with Finary

  • add it via the Finary web app

  • add it via the Finary mobile app

  • reconnect Binance when the API key is revoked

💡 Good to know: Once your Binance account is linked, its value will be updated automatically. Whether you buy or sell positions, your Finary account will always be up to date. You will not be able to delete any Binance position on Finary.

💡 Important: Your account is no longer synchronizing? We invite you to follow the procedure indicated in this article.

Create a Binance API key for Finary

  1. Log into your Binance account from a computer.

  2. Click on your profile, then API key management.

  3. Create an API key. Select “System generated API key”, then click “Next” :

  4. Name your API key to help you identify it. We suggest "Finary":

  5. Verify your identity through Security verification.

  6. Check only Enable reading as below. Finary will never be able to place orders or withdraw funds from your account.

    Also make sure that Unrestricted is selected under IP access restrictions. We use plenty of IPs to circumvent Binance's constraints. Synchronization would take hours if we would request only a few IPs. By using “rotating” IPs, we can get Binance's synchronizations in a few minutes.

  7. Your API key has been created. You can now link Binance to your Finary account.

Link Binance on Web

  1. Open the "Add Asset" page and search for Binance

  2. This is where you will need to copy/paste the API key and the secret key. Please see the instructions below.

  3. Copy and paste the API key and the secret key. Be careful, the secret key will be displayed only once, during the creation. If you don't copy it at that time, you will have to create a new one.

  4. Synchronizing your account may take a few moments. If it fails, make sure you have pasted the 2 keys in the right place.

Link Binance on the App

  1. Open the Asset search, type "Binance" and select the first result

  2. You have two options: Copy-paste your API keys; or scan the key's QR Code (super quick)

  3. The initial synch can take a few minutes.

My Binance account is no longer synchronized (API key has been revoked)

If the API key you are using on Finary was revoked, here is what you can do:

  1. do not delete your existing Binance connection (you may lose your account history)

  2. create a new Binance API key for Finary

  3. Go to the Crypto section of the webapp (not possible yet on mobile app)

  4. Click on the 3 dots next to your Binance account
