The Gekko trading bot is an open source software solution hat can be found on the GitHub platform. It was last updated a month ago, which seems to indicate it is still being actively developed. Using this automated trading bot seems rather straightforward, as it even comes with some basic strategies. It is not a high-frequency trading bot by any means, nor will it exploit arbitrage opportunities. With a good list of supported exchanges, Gekko could be worth checking out.

Few people in the world claim to fully understand cryptocurrencies right now, and even fewer can wrap their heads around the finer details of blockchain technology. You might have never even heard of the term, but it’s important to understand that blockchain is the technology that underpins the growth of cryptocurrencies.
I’m going to play the devil’s advocate on this one. I can see where the OP was going with the article, but it is too layered in dreamy thinking. It is interesting articles like this seem to catch more eyes than say if someone wrote one except replaced the word Bitcoin with penny stocks; just as volatile, just as likely to hit the moon… you would get an outpouring of comments saying how stupid the article was.

A few words to the wise. You must make sure that you are sending BTC to BTC wallets, ETH to ETH wallets, and so on and so forth. You will lose your assets attempting to send, for instance, Bitcoin to a NEO wallet.

There is lots of value created by ‘pump- & dumpers’ so watch out! Always set a goal, which you want to achieve, e.g. 2% or 35 USD per day. If you don’t check you exchanges daily, then the best thing you could probably do is add a limit order. A limit order is executed, when a specific price is reached. For example, if you buy Ether for 0.05 BTC. You can make a limit sell order for 0.075 BTC. This means that you will automatically sell your Ether when the value is higher than 0.075 BTC. This assures, that you don’t miss any big price movements- it can always fall back to 0.05 before you can see the profit opportunity.
Sending or receiving Bitcoins is only made possible if you have a Bitcoin address. You can get a Bitcoin address through an online wallet or by downloading Bitcoin client.

While the book is focused on traditional markets, most of the rules he puts forward can easily be applied to the crypto markets. His reasons for why new traders lose money on the very first page is worth the price of the entire book.
Opportunities – based on your research you should be able to spot investment opportunities and gauge participation based on risk vs reward. Often times grinding out small, low risk moves (such as running arbitrage) can be just as lucrative as catching a big move. Knowing price trends in terms of BTC and USD is vital… sometimes gains can be made in BTC but not USD and visa versa.
Also consider that technical analysis techniques for traditional stock, commodity, and forex will be less accurate here, due in part to the inherent differences of this asset class. Remember, you’ll essentially be trading programmable currency, which is a very new thing for most traders. You’ll want to couple your chart analysis with fundamental research- like how a particular coin works- to better understand how people will be using that coin. This alone can account for a big difference in price action between two seemingly similar assets.
If you ignore the fact that I didn’t know what the fuck I was doing and I was playing on luck, the whole experience is not one I wish to return to. Sure there are plenty of people who day trade crypto and probably a bunch who make good returns. Equally, there are many who have been burnt and financially ruined themselves. Just search Reddit and you will find many depressing stories.
Once your account is funded, you can go ahead and make your first purchase. Remember, you do not have to purchase coins in full units. You can buy coins in fractions as low as one hundredth of a millionth, or about less than one-tenth of a cent at current prices. That makes bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies easy targets for speculation.
