MAJOR UPDATE AS OF MAY 13, 2021:

BINANCE HAS DISABLED MOST UNITED STATES USERS FROM ACCESSING THEIR ACCOUNTS. IF YOU HAVE ANY OLD DATA FROM BINANCE WHICH INCLUDE TRADES, DEPOSITS, AND WITHDRAWALS, PLEASE KEEP THOSE. MANY USERS ARE NOT ABLE TO ACCESS THE API OR CSV WE OUTLINE BELOW, SO THE ONLY OPTION LEFT IS TO USE OLD DATA YOU HAVE RECORD OF. IF YOU ARE ABLE TO LOG INTO BINANCE STILL, PLEASE GATHER AS MANY RECORDS AS YOU CAN WHICH INCLUDE WITHDRAWALS, DEPOSITS AND TRADES.

IF THE API OR CSV IS NOT AN OPTION FOR YOU ANYMORE, YOU WILL NEED TO MANUALLY ENTER THE TRANSACTIONS OR CREATE A CUSTOM CSV. PLEASE REACH OUT TO SUPPORT FOR MORE QUESTIONS.

BINANCE INSTRUCTIONS FOR CSV & API:

We now support Binance CSV in addition to their API. Due to Binance shutting down to US residents, and merging to Binance US, some customers are not able to import using an API. If you can use an API still, please see the video below to acces your API key. This method also works for Binance US.

Step-by-Step Text Instructions For API:

Have your email open and your Google Authenticator standing by - you will need both.

  • Click on the Account User icon (likely has your initials) after login in the top right.

  • Select API Management

  • Create a label for the new API key. "ZenLedger READ ONLY" is a good suggestion, but it can be anything you like. Click Create

  • Enter your 2FA from Google Authenticator to create the new key.

  • Go to your email and confirm with Binance that you are creating a new API key.

  • Edit the API by clicking Edit restrictions in the top right of the API key.

  • Uncheck the box under Option: Enable Trading.

  • Click Save button on the top right. Enter your 2FA to confirm.

  • There is no need to do anything with the API whitelist.

  • Now copy and paste the API Key and API Secret into ZenLedger. Note that you will be unable to retrieve the Secret after you close Binance, so it's important to get this in before you leave Binance or you will have to create a new API key.

Step-by-Step Text Instructions For CSV:

If you are not able to access the API for Binance, please use these instructions to gather your CSV from Binance, and import it into ZenLedger.

NOTE: This does not require you to convert to our custom CSV.

  • Delete any old Binance data from Imports -> Imported History page if you want to use CSV instead of API.

  • First log in to your Binance account (https://www.binance.com/login.html)

  • Go to Binance Transaction History (https://www.binance.com/en/my/wallet/history/deposit-crypto)

  • Click on Generate all statements which is located at Top Right side, aligned with Transaction History title.

  • For Range, Select Customize

  • Select date range for from January 1st to December 31st

  • Click on Confirm

  • Click on Generate

  • Repeat these steps for each year

  • After the CSV has been generated, download the CSV and upload it in ZenLedger.
