An unofficial Python API to use the Binance REST API`s (com+testnet, com-margin+testnet, com-isolated_margin+testnet, com-futures+testnet, us, tr) in a easy, fast, flexible, robust and fully-featured way.

Part of 'UNICORN Binance Suite'.

from unicorn_binance_rest_api.manager import BinanceRestApiManager

api_key = "aaa"
api_secret = "bbb"
ubra = BinanceRestApiManager(api_key, api_secret, exchange="binance.com")

# get market depth
depth = ubra.get_order_book(symbol='BNBBTC')

# get all symbol prices
prices = ubra.get_all_tickers()

# get the used weight:
# https://github.com/binance-us/binance-official-api-docs/blob/master/rest-api.md#limits
print(f"Used weight: {ubra.get_used_weight()}")

This is a fork of Sam McHardy`s python-binance 0.7.10 - package. Extended, cleaned up and reduced to pure REST tasks, with PRs added and improved. No asyncio support!!

The Python module UNICORN Binance REST API provides an API to the Binance REST API`s of Binance (+Testnet), Binance Margin (+Testnet), Binance Isolated Margin (+Testnet), Binance Futures (+Testnet), Binance COIN-M Futures, Binance US and Binance TR and needs to be used with a valid api_key and api_secret from the Binance Exchange www.binance.com, testnet.binance.vision or www.binance.us.

Be aware that the Binance REST API is request based. if you want to send and receive high frequency and high volume data, you can use the UNICORN Binance Websocket API in combination.

What are the benefits of the UNICORN Binance REST API?

  • Supported exchanges:
Exchange Exchange string
Binance binance.com
Binance Testnet binance.com-testnet
Binance Margin binance.com-margin
Binance Margin Testnet binance.com-margin-testnet
Binance Isolated Margin binance.com-isolated_margin
Binance Isolated Margin Testnet binance.com-isolated_margin-testnet
Binance USD-M Futures binance.com-futures
Binance USD-M Futures Testnet binance.com-futures-testnet
Binance Coin-M Futures binance.com-coin_futures
Binance US binance.us
Binance TR trbinance.com
  • Helpful management features like get_used_weight(),

  • Integration of test cases and examples.

  • Customizable base URL and request timeout.

  • Socks5 Proxy support: ubra = BinanceRestApiManager(exchange="binance.com", socks5_proxy_server="") Read the docs or this how to for more information or try example_socks5_proxy.py.

  • Excessively tested on Linux, Mac and Windows

SOCKS5 Proxy / Geoblocking

We would like to explicitly point out that in our opinion US citizens are exclusively authorized to trade on Binance.US and that this restriction must not be circumvented!

The purpose of supporting a SOCKS5 proxy in the UNICORN Binance Suite and its modules is to allow non-US citizens to use US services. For example, Github actions with UBS will not work without a SOCKS5 proxy, as they will inevitably run on servers in the US and be blocked by Binance.com. Moreover, it also seems justified that traders, data scientists and companies from the US analyze binance.com market data - as long as they do not trade there.
