How to connect Binance Futures with API
We are only requesting view permissions. This does not give us access to your private keys or the ability to move your funds.
Follow these steps to add your Binance Futures account to Coinpanda with API:
Click ‘Get code’ to receive a verification code to your email address
Enter the verification code and your 2FA code if required, then click ‘Submit’
Copy the API Key and Secret Key to Coinpanda.
Please note: Earlier in 2022, Binance introduced several limitations to their API so that only futures data from the last three months are available for USD-margined futures. This is, unfortunately, completely out of our control, and we encourage you to contact Binance customer support and request that they remove this limitation. For now, we recommend using file upload as described below instead. COIN-margined futures are not affected by this limitation.
Coinpanda will automatically aggregate all Realized P&L transactions for the same timestamp to a single transaction. All fees and funding payments will be saved as a single daily transaction for each individual settlement currency.
This is done to avoid importing thousands of small transactions of insignificant value often provided by the Binance API. This means that you might see only 100 transactions on Coinpanda instead of 1,000 or 2,000 using another crypto tax platform. The resulting gain/loss will be exactly the same.
You might see one or more Negative balance warnings on the Transactions page. This can happen because Binance allows having negative wallet balances and is, therefore, most likely not due to an error with the API import.

How are Binance Futures transactions taxed?
The exact tax implications on Binance Futures transactions depend on which country you live in and the type of transactions you have made. In general, you must pay either capital gains tax or income tax on your cryptocurrency transactions on Binance Futures.
Capital gains tax: Whenever you sell a cryptocurrency for more than you purchased it for, you generate a capital gain. On the other hand, if you sell the cryptocurrency for less than you paid initially, you have a capital loss, which can offset other gains in most cases.
Income tax: Earned cryptocurrency on Binance Futures, such as staking, interest, bonuses, and referral rewards, is typically seen as taxable income from a tax perspective and must be reported in your tax return.
To learn more about how Binance Futures transactions are taxed in your country, we recommend reading our in-depth guides to cryptocurrency taxes.
How do I file my Binance Futures taxes?
First, you must calculate capital gains and income from all taxable transactions on Binance Futures. When you have this information ready, you can report capital gains and income together with other forms of income such as employment and dividends in your annual tax return.
To calculate your capital gains, you must first export a complete history of all transactions made on Binance Futures. Once you have this data, you can calculate your capital gains or losses by determining the price at which you bought the cryptocurrency (your cost basis) and the price at which you sold it (your proceeds). Luckily, Coinpanda can help you with this and generate ready-to-file tax forms quickly and easily.
After downloading your Binance Futures tax statements from Coinpanda, the last step is to report the capital gains and income on your tax return before the deadline. Most countries allow you to self-declare taxes online in 2023, but you can also get help from a professional tax accountant to file taxes for you.
