API Keys

At minimum, you must configure the following environment variables:


or as instance variables:

Binance::Api::Configuration.api_key = nil
Binance::Api::Configuration.secret_key = nil

Additionally, Binance allows granular API key access based on the action being taken. For example, it is possible to use one API key for only trade actions, while using another for withdrawal actions. You can configure this using any of the following keys:


or as instance variables:

Binance::Api::Configuration.read_info_api_key = nil
Binance::Api::Configuration.trading_api_key = nil
Binance::Api::Configuration.withdrawals_api_key = nil

If any one of these keys are not defined, binance-ruby will fallback to BINANCE_API_KEY/Binance::Api::Configuration.api_key.

Accounts in the USA

If your Binance account is based in the United States (, you will need to specify that in an environment variable:



API Examples!

  price: '0.001',
  quantity: '100.0',
  side: 'BUY',
  symbol: 'XRPBTC',
  timeInForce: 'GTC',
  type: 'STOP_LIMIT'

WebSocket Examples


# These callbacks are optional.
on_open = ->(event) do
  puts ">> Websocket opened"
on_close = ->(event) do
  puts ">> Websocket closed (#{event.code}): #{event.reason}"
end do
  websocket = on_open, on_close: on_close)

  websocket.candlesticks!(['ETHBTC'], '1h') do |stream_name, kline_candlestick|
    symbol = kline_candlestick[:s]
    # Do whatever!

User Data: do
  websocket =

  # Be sure to call keepalive! roughly every 30 minutes
  listen_key = Binance::Api::UserDataStream.start!
  websocket.user_data_stream!(listen_key) do |listen_key, data|
    case data[:e].to_sym # event type
    when :outboundAccountPosition
      # Account update
    when :balanceUpdate
      # Balance update
    when :executionReport
      # Order update

You can find more info on all kline_candlestick attributes & available intervals in the binance documentation.
