This program is an automated trading system that can autonomously trade the LTC / BTC pair in the Coinbase Pro exchange.
Keep in mind that trading is a risky activity that can involve a loss of money. You should only invest the amount you can afford to lose.
The trading strategy consists of issuing a large number of low value orders. The program continuously monitors the price of litecoin and issues a limit buy order when the price begins to rise above the weighted average of the previous prices. Once the buy order is filled, the program issues a limit sell order at a higher price.
The seed is the amount of litecoins that the program will trade continuously to earn bitcoins. This snap uses a fixed value of 1 litecoin. You should have a bitcoin balance of at least 10 times the value of 1 litecoin.
