Crypto currency development with open source

This is a video explaining my view of crypto currency bot development. This includes Bitcoin with a focus on using Python over Javascript or PHP.

Advantages of using Python over web development programming languages

After my various videos on based on trading bots for Bitcoin. See below for that. The main hate on from what I see is that people don’t like negative references back to web development languages (e.g. Javascript or PHP) are substandard for more advanced languages including Python. I explain all of my rationale in my first 13 minute video below.

Working Python gives you many advantages to integrate with other awesome packages including backtrader. It seems that a widely evolved package like ccxt  enables you to wrap to 90 global exchanges. Some will be valid and safe while others will drop off with bad news around them. As a result, you only to maintain one interface with the latest exchange changes. You will not need to pull your hair out by maintaining each exchange you are interested in working with.

Here are some past videos I have done regarding Bitcoin bots. This includes Gekko or other bot projects.

There is no lazy way

If you plan to use some black box bot, you are pretty well wasting money. I say that because you most likely are looking for the quick easy way to make money at crypto. Guess again? Those days are over. Not only that, it means that you will need to work. You will need to full understand ‘under the approach’ of how these instrument flow. Yes they are valid. It is the volatility where you will make some great coin if you forecast the correct market direction. As a result, you will need to understand this with a good amount of learning. Sorry but I don’t think there is no other way.
