How To Find Api Key On Binance

If you’re having trouble using your Binance API Key, you’ve come to the right place. In this tutorial, we’ll show you how to create and link your Binance account to Crypto Pro or any other application.

So, What Exactly Is an API Key?

According to Google’s dictionary, an API is “a set of functions and procedures allowing the creation of applications that access the features or data of an operating system, application, or other services.”

An API Key can be considered as a username that is generated to allow access to data. In this case, the Binance API is generated by the exchange, and you pass it on to another application. The application will then import your data based on the permissions you allow for.

Why Do I Need to Link My Keys?

There are several benefits to connecting your Binance account(s) with an app like Crypto Pro. Your portfolio will automatically update after every trade or investment you make. You’ll also be able to access analytics reports, check your highest gainers and losers, read news about your favorite cryptocurrencies, and set exchange-specific alerts, all in one app.

Crypto Pro offers a seamless tracking experience that we are positive you’ll love. Now, let’s get down to business.
