Binance Plugin

Binance is a Shanghai founded digital currency exchange that supports about 200 crypto currencies and partially free API access. The Binance API plugin (Zorro S required) can be used to trade cryptocurencies with or without a Binance account; in the latter case only price data and history is available.  For trading Binance Futures a different plugin is available.
