How to receive an API key on Binance?

You need to be verified to create an API key!

  3. Turn on the API section in the user center by pressing the «Manage API» button.

  5. Next, it is necessary to complete two-factor verification. You may choose either «SMS Authentication» or «Google Authentication». You will receive an SMS-message containing a code to the phone number you’ve entered during the registration, or you need to receive the code from Google Authenticator.
