Since Binance Futures has to do with contracts, please remember to open the contract account before creating an API key for the first time. Regarding account opening, please refer to steps 1 to 3 of Depositing your assets into your exchange wallets (Binance Futures).
1. Log on to Binance. Under "Account", you will find "API Management".
2. Enter your desired label in the field and click "Create".
3. You will receive an email and SMS authentication code and be prompted to enter them.
Make sure to check "Enable Trading" and "Enable Future" before hitting "Save". This is crucial to having a functional API key.
You will receive another SMS authentication code to confirm the creation.
4. Copy and paste your "API Key" and "Secret Key" on to the Bincentive platform. We will store them in a smart contract gateway where neither Bincentive nor the quant trading strategy will have direct access to them.
