Is Coinbase easiest for crypto currency funding with new exchange Coinbase Pro API

Is Coinbase easiest for crypto currency funding with new exchange Coinbase Pro API

Screw Coinbase. I think the requirement to fund Coinbase with photo ID is something I am not comfortable.

As a result, I am going the anonymous route using LocalCoin. It seems a little safer without the need to sending out unnecessary documents to an exchange like Coinbase.

How To Buy Bitcoin

It is little more expensive to go anonymously but for now, I  feel more comfortable with this route.

I have an iPhone which means the future of crypto currency exchanges will be measured on their native mobile app support on something like Apple IOS. It seems at the time of this writing, there are only 2 exchanges worthy of noting who are on this. This includes both Coinbase and Huobi in Asia. Since Coinbase is trustworthy since they are regulated out of USA, they might be the ones to watch for newbies wanting to fund an account safely. It will get interesting to see the future how the new exchange Coinbase Pro will do as it appears to be renamed from the old GDAX. As a result, I may focus on Coinbase for small funding of an account. I also want to test their functionality for both orders and data. As you know, I have focused both on Binance and Bitmex but it makes sense to use a more trustworthy exchange like Coinbase. This is especially true when you are starting out with live money. Always remember to fund an exchange with a tiny amount you can risk to lose. For me, it will be tiny amounts like $20 Canadian. As it stands, I just want to focus only connectivity testing and basic low risk automated strategy that I have built over the last few months. This Coinbase Pro might not be the smartest choice for now, but it should be the simplest to test with live money,

As for the support with the CCXT Python package, I have found some sources that seem to make life easier when switching over to Coinbase Pro. It is confirmed to work with old GDAX as hinted in these links:

New Exchange: Coinbase #466

https://github.com/ccxt/ccxt/issues/466

New Exchange: Coinbase Pro #3210

https://github.com/ccxt/ccxt/issues/3210

https://github.com/ccxt/ccxt/pull/3214

GDAX Migration to Coinbase Pro 

https://github.com/ccxt/ccxt/issues/3216

The volume for Coinbase Pro is tiny as compared to larger exchanges like Binance. It seems this will raise a concern for volume, slippage. Liquidity and so on. This is why you need to fund with a tiny amount you are willing to lose on.

unknown crypto currency error: Send order to Binance exchange with Python CCXT package 

Sending order to Binance exchange with Python CCXT package

To enable API, you login to follow these instructions  but understand working with unknown code from Binance crypto currency exchange. Realize that this is not an easy process like Coinbase. This is confirmation is not as slick as other brokers/exchanges I have worked with.

https://support.coinigy.com/hc/en-us/articles/360001144614-How-do-I-find-my-API-key-on-Binance-com-

https://support.binance.com/hc/en-us/articles/115000840592-Binance-API-Beta

Also for CCXT Python package, use this source code example

https://github.com/ccxt/ccxt/issues/2552

When I run this sample with test enabled, I get this return code:

{‘info’: {}, ‘id’: None, ‘timestamp’: None, ‘datetime’: None, ‘lastTradeTimestamp’: None, ‘symbol’: None, ‘type’: None, ‘side’: None, ‘price’: None, ‘amount’: None, ‘cost’: None, ‘filled’: 0.0, ‘remaining’: None, ‘status’: None, ‘fee’: None}

Confirmed Binance login

Do understand this account is unfunded so it does confirm to work when you enter the correct API and secret keys. If the secret or API keys were incorrect, you will get this exceptions:

File “/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/3.6/lib/python3.6/site-packages/ccxt/binance.py”, line 834, in handle_errors
raise ExchangeError(self.id + ‘: unknown error code: ‘ + body + ‘ ‘ + error)
ccxt.base.errors.ExchangeError: binance: unknown error code: {“code”:-1022,”msg”:”Signature for this request is not valid.”} -1022

Here is an ongoing dialogue with my most helpful dialogue PRIVATE Telegram group:

for anyone with Binance API experience. I am using this example with binance for CCXT https://github.com/ccxt/ccxt/issues/2552

Some coding examples

It seems to login ok with the proper API keys. I test a fake one which resulted as an error as expected. When I try set up these coding parameters with:

symbol = ‘XZC/BNB’

#symbol = ‘BCH/BNB’

type = ‘limit’ # or ‘market’

side = ‘buy’ # or ‘buy’

amount = 1.0

price = 1.302 #0.060154 # or None

# extra params and overrides if needed

params = {

‘test’: True, # test if it’s valid, but don’t actually place it

}

order = exchange.create_order(symbol, ‘limit’, side, amount, price, params)

It results in which is nothing:

{‘info’: {}, ‘id’: None, ‘timestamp’: None, ‘datetime’: None, ‘lastTradeTimestamp’: None, ‘symbol’: None, ‘type’: None, ‘side’: None, ‘price’: None, ‘amount’: None, ‘cost’: None, ‘filled’: 0.0, ‘remaining’: None, ‘status’: None, ‘fee’: None}

My test account has a Bitcoin balance of 0.00176200. Do I need to choose another pair with a lower value? Do I need to only use a crypto currency pair with BTC not BNB?

Thanks

also, i tried this code:

symbol = ‘XLM/BTC’

#symbol = ‘XZC/BNB’

#symbol = ‘BCH/BNB’

type = ‘limit’ # or ‘market’

side = ‘buy’ # or ‘buy’

amount = 1.0

#price = 1.302 #0.060154 # or None

price =0.00003550

but now get response of: ccxt.base.errors.InvalidOrder: binance {“code”:-1013,”msg”:”Filter failure: MIN_NOTIONAL”}

any pointers?

—–

MIN_NOTIONAL hints at your account not having enough capital/margin for the transaction. Have you verified this?

I’d suggest you try a transaction with an amount of 0.01 or something like that ← tried this but it did not correct the problem

For the currency question based on the pair:

Yes, in this case you need BNB in order to convert it to XZC. So you would first have to convert your BTC to BNB using the BNB/BTC pair.

…Yes, it sounds like you’re hitting a minimum order size restriction. Don’t forget that order sizes are denominated in the base currency of the pair (XLM in this case). One XLM is only worth 27c, so try increasing the order size to 10, or 50 or something like that.

It looks the like the minimum order size on Binance is 0.002 BTC, so try an order size greater than 55 or 60.

Source code updates compared to a few weeks

I also got this CCXT exception:

ccxt.base.errors.ExchangeNotAvailable: binance POST https://www.binance.com/api/v1/order 400 Bad Request {“code”:-1104,”msg”:”Not all sent parameters were read; read ‘8’ parameter(s) but was sent ‘9’.”}

But here is the latest source code sample:

import ccxt

exchange = ccxt.binance({

‘apiKey’: , ## these appear to work with valid keys

‘secret’: ,

‘enableRateLimit’: True,

})

symbol = ‘XLM/BTC’

#symbol = ‘XZC/BNB’

#symbol = ‘BCH/BNB’

typ = ‘limit’ # or ‘market’

side = ‘buy’ # or ‘buy’

amount = 55 #1.0 tried 0.1 but not balid

#price = 1.302 #0.060154 # or None

price =0.00003550

# extra params and overrides if needed

#removed because of this exception

#ccxt.base.errors.ExchangeNotAvailable: binance POST https://www.binance.com/api/v1/order 400 Bad Request {“code”:-1104,”msg”:”Not all sent parameters were read; read ‘8’ parameter(s) but was sent ‘9’.”}

# File “testBinanceOrder.py”, line 26, in <module>

# order = exchange.create_order(symbol, ‘limit’, side, amount, price, params)

# NameError: name ‘params’ is not defined

params = {

‘test’: True # test if it’s valid, but don’t actually place it

}

order = exchange.create_order(symbol, typ, side, amount, price, params)

print(order)

note the new exception of Not all sent parameters were read; read ‘8’ parameter(s) but was sent ‘9’.”

i am sending a total of 9 of but what am I supposed to eliminate? i tired the extra params but that did not help

I finally got something working with this https://github.com/ccxt/ccxt/issues/298

Can you post verbose output for it?

Try a minimal example:

import ccxt
binance = ccxt.binance({
    "apiKey": "YOUR_KEY",
    "secret": "YOUR_SECRET",
    "verbose": True,
})
print(binance.create_market_sell_order('BTC/USDT', 0.00711675))


This also seems to work fine as well:

#print(binance.create_market_sell_order(‘BTC/USDT’, 0.0001))
print(binance.create_market_buy_order(‘BTC/USDT’, 0.00001))

Warning on your sleazy forex broker account and crypto currency exchange 

Warning on your sleazy forex brokers and crypto currency exchange

This is a dire warning about your forex or crypto currency broker account

I just posted this to my Telegram groups:

gentlemen, IRS and CRA are now seeking all accounts that have been linked to cryptocurrency. this is all the more reason to go private off of telegram. also all the more reason to use crypto currencies that anonymous like Monero or ZCash. just saying

also, one of my contacts is taking a big but sleezy to court over premature losses. the broker’s general council wants a release (to prevent any lawsuit) before the they release his fund out the broker account. apparently, this goes against all regulation but just forewarning you, to be very very careful where you park your funds in whatever sleeazy crypto exchange or forex broker account

Which is most appropriate crypto currency exchange for you and Bitcoin trading

Which is most appropriate crypto currency exchange for you and Bitcoin trading

From the Telegram group so big thanks from this person:

I honestly don’t think there is such thing as a ‘best exchange’ at the moment, which is why most people I know in crypto have accounts with multiple exchanges (I have around 10 in total). Even the good ones have their flaws:

Coinbase/GDAX: I still think it is a safe bet in terms of their trustworthiness (backed by a huge company, tightly regulated in the US etc), but they only allow you to trade BTC, ETH, LTC, BCH and one or two fiat currencies depending on where you live.

Bitfinex: has a great platform and great trading conditions (high liquidity, good margin requirements etc), but as you know, there are some lingering question marks about some of their activities. For what it’s worth, I do have an account with them and I don’t think they are in the business of robbing their clients. If it weren’t for some of the bad stories coming out of Bitfinex, I would probably use them as my main exchange.

Bithumb: forget about it unless you live in South Korea; they only allow trading against KRW and is essentially useless for the rest of the world.

Bittrex: very liquid and a great selection of pairs–I have used Bittrex for most of my altcoin purchases in the past year. However, the trading fees are quite high, and the platform has been struggling to cope with the influx of new users (although, this is true for the vast majority of exchanges).

Binance: great selection of pairs again (they seem to be listing new coins much faster than Bittrex). As such, I now use Binance for a lot of my altcoin purchases. However, I’m not keen on the platform at all (it just feels really unprofessional), and one really irritating thing is that it only allows you to buy/sell cheaper altcoins in integer amounts.

Poloniex: there have also been some bad stories coming out of Poloniex, but I’ve never had a problem with them. My view of Poloniex is that everything is mediocre; mediocre selection of pairs, mediocre interface, mediocre everything. I don’t use it very often nowadays.

Most trusted crypto currency exchanges for Bitcoin are…

Over the weekend my private Telegram messenger chat Group got me highly interested in crypto currency. I learned a lot from the discussion from some of the more experts within the group. Thanks to all of them. As a result I compiled a complete list of crypto currency networks, exchanges, safe titbits that may be helpful for those that want to learn about this new way of automated trading.

Check out this list here

I will be making more videos here on this exact topic so keep your eyes open for any emails on it.

 

I got some confusing responses for my last day of my Python Infrastructure Algo/utomated trading course. This provides all the primitive but necessary components you would need to build an entire automated/algo trading systems from scratch using Python. It seems people got confused on what link to use or find out any details on this. So here we go:

 

Click here for all the details of this exact course with video presentation

 

–> You can also click here if you want immediate access

 

Lastly, I will be making this available today at HALF PRICE  for all of those interested in this course. This will be the LAST DAY as strongly hinted.This is the exact primitive automated trading system I will be using for my upcoming strategies. This system can be used for both forex and crypto currency trading.

 

Thanks for reading

Is Coinbase smartest exchange for Bitcoin crypto with algo Python ?

Is Coinbase best exchange for Bitcoin crypto with algo Python ?

Many people are convincing me to start looking at crypto currency’s as the next hotbed. Luckily for me, I have built out a really good set of people on my Telegram Chat Group over the last few weeks. It seems many there want me to trade in this space. I guess it’s time for me to jump on board at some point. If you have any wiser advice to give now is the time to share.

Here is some advise I got from this goup:

Enigma is a good project, but the team is a bit shady. They changed the hard cap of their ICO after the pre-sale was over. Talk about screwing over your investors!

 

Yes, all of the exchanges I’ve used allow you to access the entire order book through the API. So you can of course see the volume of orders at each bid/ask price.

 

Yeah, I normally use Bitcoin since all other cryptocurrencies can be exchange for Bitcoin. Occasionally I’ll use Ether but that’s only if don’t have any Bitcoin handy. Ether doesn’t have as many trading pairs as Bitcoin does.

 

I use Coinbase to go from fiat currency to crypto, but they only list BTC, ETH and LTC. I use Bittrex or Poloniex to go from BTC to other cryptos. I sometimes use EtherDelta to buy post-ICO cryptos that aren’t listed anywhere else.

 

So if I wanted to buy OMG for example, I’d buy BTC from Coinbase, then transfer it to Bittrex and buy it there.

Does this sound right?

I have more thoughts here 
For all of my paying members as part of my Quant Analytics, I will start to focus on building out exclusive chart and reports for you all with the new data I will be acquiring through Dukascopy. Eventually this will lead to automated trading signals that you’ll get access before my system trades. I really want to go live faster sooner then later.

I have decided to extend the half-price sale on my “Python Algo Trading Platform Component Course” until this Monday. With what I have listed above, it enables you now to use your Python scripts to be hooked into this powerful broker.
 

Get my Python course now for half page price until Monday

Thanks Bryan
