    What is Binance?

    Binance provides a software tool that encompasses a variety of services for digital asset trading. This includes Spot, Margin, Futures, and Options API trading, catering to a diverse range of trading strategies and preferences. It is designed to offer users the flexibility to engage with the cryptocurrency market in multiple ways.

    The platform also supports a testing environment for API trading, allowing developers and traders to experiment and refine their trading algorithms in a risk-free setting before executing them in live markets. This feature is particularly useful for those looking to ensure their trading strategies are well-tested.

    Binance's APIs boast compatibility with multiple programming languages, making the platform accessible to a wide developer community. The supported languages include Python, Java, Node.js, DotNET, and Ruby, among others, providing versatility and ease of integration with various software projects and trading tools.

    It is important to note that the Binance API is unofficial and that Binance is not liable for any losses or damages that may arise from its use. Users of the Binance API should proceed with caution and at their own risk.

    Exporting Binance Transactions to a CSV File

    Exporting via Binance API Management

    To export your Binance transactions to a CSV file for use with Koinly, start by logging into your Binance account. Navigate to the Binance API management page. If you have futures transactions, you will need to create a regular API key. Otherwise, for the purpose of tax reporting, create a Tax Report API key on Koinly. After creating the necessary API key, copy the API key and API secret from Koinly and paste them into Binance to establish a connection.

    Uploading CSV to Koinly

    With the API keys set up, proceed to Koinly and click the Import button. This will allow you to upload the CSV file you have obtained from Binance. It is important to review your transactions in Koinly to ensure they are tagged correctly. Additionally, you should review your tax report in Koinly to assess your tax liability.

    Syncing Binance Data to Koinly

    You can sync your Binance transactions with Koinly by uploading a CSV file directly. Generate the CSV file from your Binance transaction history and upload this file to Koinly. If you have not yet created a Koinly account, you can do so for free. Remember that for syncing Binance with Koinly via CSV, particularly if you have futures transactions, you should use 'System generated' API keys. This will ensure that all relevant transactions are captured in Koinly for tax calculation purposes.
