Keep in mind this is the BETA RELEASE. I will be constantly adding/changing stuff. Expect things to be broken, unfinished, and inconsistent. Live trading is discouraged unless you're just playing around with small amounts of currency, or really know what you're doing.
Soon I will develop a roadmap for Beta -> Stable progression, Beta testing rules/instructions, and community tools.
When the project stabilizes, I will conduct a poll for all Beta testers. If the majority feel it's ready for release, I will release the Stable version, end the Beta program, and raise the Unlock Code prices to $99.99 for Single-IP and $499.99 for Unlimited-IP. All Unlock Codes purchased during the Beta period will work with the Stable version, and forever after.
Please be patient and stay tuned!
Bot18 is "online" software, designed to be invoked without installing. Cloning the repo will only take up space. The only pre-requisite is having Node.js >= 8.3.0 installed.
Just open a terminal or cmd prompt and type:
$ npx bot18
If running Bot18 for the first time, you'll be asked to log into your ZalgoNet account (browser-based signup form is at bot18.net/register) or you can create a new account through the CLI.
All communications and local storage are safely encrypted using the latest:
To get the most out of Bot18, you'll need an 8-digit Unlock Code, purchasable for $49.99 (for a limited time!) at bot18.net/beta. You can pay by credit card or crypto-currency, and the code never expires and grants you automatic code updates for the entire Bot18 product lifecycle.
Or, you can try out Bot18 for free (enter "guest" as the ZalgoNet username or run with
--channel trial), but you experience will be very sub-optimal. The "trial" engine distribution (also known as "cripple mode") is heavily DE-optimized (roughly 10x slower), does not support auto-trading strategies, and auto-quits after 15 minutes. If you like what you see, invest in an Unlock Code!
For full licensing details, see bot18.net/licensing.
npx bot18command, to configure the bot. Make sure you
chmod 0600 bot18.config.jsto protect your configured API keys/passwords from exposure due to liberal filesystem permissions.
npx bot18 --conf <path-to-bot18.config.js>, and/or define an account-wide conf at
c.mongo.enabled=truein your conf file.
The Beta engine build currently doesn't do anything but print something to stdio:
The current ALPHA version (now being ported to the Beta platform) is an early proof-of-concept, and supports:
Cheers and happy trading,
