However, for effective and secure trading, traders need to use advanced tools and technologies. One such solution is integrating an API key through the Cryptorobotics platform.

What is an API Key

An API key is a unique identifier that allows interaction with the application programming interface (API) of the Binance cryptocurrency exchange. This key is used to automate trading operations, access market information, and manage an account through third-party platforms, such as Cryptorobotics.

API Key Security

API key security is ensured through a series of steps:

  • Verification on Binance: Before creating a key, it is necessary to undergo identity verification, including uploading documents and facial recognition.
  • Creating a key with restrictions: The key can be created with various security parameters, including restrictions on IP addresses and types of permitted operations.
  • Storing the secret key: The secret key is shown only once and must be kept in a safe place.
