Anyone ever use any of these exchanges listed here:

India? Really?

Top 2 seem to be: Kraken Bitstamp and Coinbase


Any other thoughts? Let me know


Here are API projects

Kraken: exchange API, Python 3 package.

This package is intentionally as lean as possible, and only provides a minimal interface to the Kraken cryptocurrency exchange.

Intended for developers, not traders.

Tips from my Telegram chat group:

If you just want to buy BTC with USD, I’d still say GDAX (which is part of Coinbase) is the best. Coinbase is a $1.6 billion company, and trading using limit orders is absolutely free on GDAX. USD deposits are protected under some US scheme, but I’m not sure if that applies to Canadians too. Bitfinex has the highest BTCUSD volume (I think), but I’ve heard of some dodgy stories coming out of Bitfinex. Whatever exchange you use, do not keep cryptocurrency on there for any extended period of time; transfer to a desktop/paper wallet, or even better, a hardware wallet such as Ledger Nano S or Trezor. If you’re using a decentralised exchange (such as EtherDelta) then of course you’re deposits are safe since it is all handled with Ethereum smart contracts.

Bittrex don’t have BTCUSD, only BTCUSDT (which is Tether, a cryptocurrency supposedly pegged to USD). I’ve never used Gemini, but I’d still prefer Coinbase I think, purely because it’s backed by some rather important people.

Most of the APIs are RESTful/HTTP, and as such, are language-agnostic.

it seems go and python wrappers are most popular.

Apparently with Bittrex, you can do market making with C++. It seems you could try a project like


As for wallet, If John McAfee says Trezor wallet is good, it must be

Coinbase only trades several coins. So exchange your fiat currencies for
Bitcoin on Gemini or Coinbase, then transfer the Bitcoin to an exhange like
Bittrex. Poloniex was the best, but they have no customer service and have
had many people leave for Bittrex. Bittrex and Poloniex trade dozens of

technicals on the bitcoin chart are text book but I tend to think the selling is not over. now is the perfect time to attempt a sell again HOWEVER, who really knows, could sore to old high and then new high too! ;p is much faster to get funds in and out between BITCOIN and cash. Coinbase has security issues and holds your BITCOIN for a week after you purchase it. They do give you the current exchange rate at time of purchase. They also have a high commission.


NOTE I now post my TRADING ALERTS into my personal FACEBOOK ACCOUNT and TWITTER. Don't worry as I don't post stupid cat videos or what I eat!
