GDAX Trading Bot

Kenshiro (kenshiro-gohan)

Trading bot for the Coinbase Pro exchange

This program is an automated trading system that can autonomously trade the XTZ / BTC and ETH / BTC pairs 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.

----- Trading strategy -----

The trading strategy consists of issuing a large number of low value orders. The program continuously monitors the price of each coin and issues a market 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 -----

The seed is the amount of each coin that the program will trade continuously to earn bitcoins. This snap uses 1 XTZ and 1 ETH as seeds.

You should be able to buy at least 10 seeds of each coin with your initial bitcoin balance. The more seeds you can buy, the easier it will be to recover from a losing streak.

----- Example -----

Your seeds are set as 1 XTZ and 1 ETH.

The price of Tezos is 0.01 BTC and the price of Ethereum is 0.02 BTC.

You should be able to buy 10 seeds of each coin with your initial bitcoin balance.

Your minimum bitcoin balance should be: (0.01 + 0.02) * 10 = 0.3 BTC.

----- Registration -----

Register in Coinbase (https://www.coinbase.com).

Use the Coinbase account to login to the Coinbase Pro exchange (https://pro.coinbase.com).

Deposit the amount of bitcoins you want.

----- API Key generation -----

Generate an API Key only with trade permission (https://pro.coinbase.com/profile/api).

----- Environment variables -----

Save the three values of the API Key in the following environment variables of the operating system:

TRADING_BOT_PASSPHRASE

TRADING_BOT_KEY

TRADING_BOT_SECRET

----- Execution -----

Open a system console.

Run "gdax-trading-bot" to start the execution of the program.

Press Ctrl + C to exit.

Enable snaps on Arch Linux and install GDAX Trading Bot

Snaps are applications packaged with all their dependencies to run on all popular Linux distributions from a single build. They update automatically and roll back gracefully.

On Arch Linux, snap can be installed from the Arch User Repository (AUR). The manual build process is the Arch-supported install method for AUR packages, and you’ll need the prerequisites installed before you can install any AUR package. You can then install snap with the following:

git clone https://aur.archlinux.org/snapd.git cd snapd makepkg -si

Once installed, the systemd unit that manages the main snap communication socket needs to be enabled:

To enable classic snap support, enter the following to create a symbolic link between /var/lib/snapd/snap and /snap:
