Documentation

In this tutorial, we are going to explain how you can link your Binance account to the hopper. Binance offers a 0.1% fee on all trades, making it the cheapest exchange we support on our platform (e.g. 0.15% - Poloniex / 0.25% - Coinbase Pro). 

 

Sign up on Binance


The first thing you need to do is create an account at Binance. Click here to go to Binance.

Create your account

Fill in the required fields.

Note that this account is where you will store your funds, so it's very important to choose a strong and reliable password.

You will receive an email with an activation link. Binance is rather strict with their verification rules, so you will have to verify your identity with a driver's license or passport,

as part of their effort to prevent money laundering through the exchange.

Deposit

Now that you've successfully created your account, the next step is to deposit your funds.

As shown at the top of the diagram, you can access the "Deposits" under the "Funds" tab.

API Keys

The next step is to create an API key for your Hopper. With this key, your Hopper can trade on your behalf.

At the top right corner, you will find the profile icon. Click it to see your user profile. Then, you can access the API settings at the bottom left corner.

API Key settings

Copy the settings we have displayed in the provided image.

*IMPORTANT

We do not want the permission to transfer funds! We solely want to be able to view, trade and manage.

Click "Create API Key".

Your public and private key are shown at the bottom of the page.

We'll have to copy these keys into the configuration of your Hopper.

Now that you've created your keys, it's time to configure your Hopper. Go to your Hopper's dashboard and click "Configuration".

Click save.
