To get started with seamless trading experience on Altrady, you need to connect your cryptocurrency exchange with our platform. In this guide, we have illustrated 12 easy steps that will help you to connect your 'Binance exchange' account with 'Altrady' via API.

Binance is the most popular cryptocurrency exchange in the world with more than 15 million users across the globe 💡

Step-1: Enter Binance URL in your browser and login to your account.

Step-2: After signing in, navigate to your dashboard bar, click on the Settings, and select API Management. Alternatively, you can click on profile icon at the top-right corner and select API Management from the drop down menu.

Step-3: Now create the API by assigning it a name. Here we have assigned the name - Altrady as an example. Hit the Create API button once done.

Step-4: Enter the six-digit code sent to your phone as well as e-mail to complete the security verification process for creating API. Hit Submit button after entering the codes.

Step-5a: Binance will redirect you to a new page where you will be provided with your API key as well as a Secret key. Now, copy these two codes and visit Altrady website.

Step-5b: Make sure that your permissions look like these.
Do not enter any IP addresses in the Whitelist or your API key will not work with Altrady. You would need to use Altrady's IP addresses--there are many and they are updated frequently, so it's not possible to add these. However, Altrady encrypts your API key when it's used, and your API keys are secured by a 5 word key that only you have access to, so your API key is very safe.

Step-6: If you haven't already done so, login to your Altrady account and click on the Settings icon appearing in the left hand side of the interface.
Then choose Exchange account API keys.
Ad click + Add API Key.

Go to Settings > Exchange account API keys and click > + Add API Key

Step-7. A new pop-up will appear on your screen for adding the API Key.
Select Binance from the exchange dropdown menu,
Give your API key a label,
and enter your Binance API key and Secret key generated at Step-5.

You can use the same API key to add a Binance Spot and Futures account at the same time.
If you do, they will be listed as separate API keys in your list.

Or, you can choose to only create a trading account for Spot or Futures.
If you're not sure, it won't hurt to add both at the same time.

If you select Futures, then Futures trading must have been selected in Step 5b.

Note. When you access Spot and Futures markets using the Markets widget, they have different exchange codes:
BINA for Binance,
BIFU for Binance Futures,
(and BIUS for Binance US).

Choose whether to add an API key for Binance Spot, Binance Futures, or both.

Step -9: Hit the Save button after entering all the information.

Step -10: Click on the Add button.

Step -11: Binance API keys expire after 90 days. So add your API key expiry date to your calendar.

After 90 days, Binance will switch off the Trade permission on your API key without notifying you.
When this happens, you will no longer be able to trade on Altrady using the API key, your smart positions and bots won't be able to place or delete orders, and you will get an error message such as "Invalid API Key, IP address, or permissions for action" in Altrady.

To fix this, go to Binance and edit your API key: Re-tick Spot and Margin Trading. And also re-tick Futures Trading, if you are using this API key for Futures.
You API key will work for at least another 90 days.

To avoid any loss of trading time, especially if you are running bots, you can instead replace your API key before the 90 days are up.
In this case, simply create a new API key on Binance. edit your API key on Altrady, and replace the key and secret with the new ones.
If you have Spot and Futures API keys, both will need to be replaced.

Never delete your API key altogether, since all of your trade, order, position and portfolio history will be lost.

Step-12: You have successfully connected your Binance exchange account with Altrady. You can edit the details anytime by selecting the edit icon.

If your balances haven't yet updated from the exchange, find out how to quickly update them:

Now you can start leveraging the robust features that Altrady has to offer.
