💡 * If you haven't already opened a Futures wallet, use our referral code (league) to receive a 10% discount on your trades!

Note: If you are not interested in enabling Copy Trading skip to step #3.

  1. Log in to your Binance account and head to the "USDS-M Futures" page, under "Futures".

  2. If you don’t already have a Futures account, you will need to create one. Use the referral code “league” to receive a 10% discount on your trades!

  3. Once your Futures account has been made, click on the profile icon to reveal a drop-down menu. Select "Account" followed by "API Management".

  4. Select "Create API".

  5. Select "System generated API key".

  6. Type in a label (name) for the API key and press "Next". This is an optional name for your API key that is for your eyes only.

  7. To keep your account secure, you must complete the security verification with an "Email Verification Code" and "Authenticator Code" from Google Authenticator.

  8. Copy the API Key and Secret Key, store this information somewhere safe.

    Note: The secret key will not appear again, so please be mindful. You could permanently lose access to your API key if you lose these codes.

  9. You will now need to modify the API permissions. Select "Edit restrictions".

  10. Enable the following permissions:

    • "Enable Reading" - Necessary for the portfolio function. Enabled Reading is checked by default.

    • "Enable Futures", "Enable Spot & Margin Trading" - Allows us to place orders on your behalf. Select this option if you plan to use League of Traders functions such as Copy Trading.

  11. In the "IP access restrictions" field select "Restrict access to trusted IPs only" and copy/paste the following IP address:

    • Entering this IP address provides an extra layer of security to your account by solely allowing League of Traders access to your API key.

    • IMPORTANT: If you are subscribed to League of Traders PRO, you must instead input your dedicated PRO IP provided on the API page.

12. Click "Save" to register your settings and submit the security verification code.
