How to Whitelist API Trading Symbol for Sub-accounts?

2022-01-18 13:51

What is the API Trading Symbol Whitelist function?

The API Trading Symbol Whitelist function lets you restrict sub-accounts’ Spot/Margin trading to the Master Account selected trading pairs only. It aims to further enhance trading security and can achieve more flexible trading management for sub-accounts. This feature is currently available for Spot/Margin trading on Normal sub-accounts only.

Who can use the API Trading Symbol Whitelist function?

Master Accounts with APIs setup for normal sub-accounts can use the API Trading Symbol Whitelist function. Once you have configured the symbol whitelist, the selected sub-accounts can only trade whitelisted pairs through API. However, if they are trading on the Binance website, there will be no symbol restrictions.
For more information about sub-accounts, please refer to How to Manage Sub-Account Functions and Frequently Asked Questions.

What are the features of the API Trading Symbol Whitelist function?

  • Restrict Spot/Margin trading to selected pairs only. This allows trading teams to assign selected pairs to specific traders;
  • Enhanced API trading security. In case your APIs are stolen, unauthorized third-parties cannot deal on trading pairs that are not on the whitelist;
  • User-friendly interface. Trading teams could easily find and select trading pairs to whitelist. It supports up to 30 pairs for each sub-account API.
Currently, the API Trading Symbol Whitelist function is available for Spot/Margin trading on Normal sub-accounts only. We will support more products and other sub-account types in the future.
