Fees on crypto-currency trading platforms are typically a % of the value of the trade and the % you pay is determined by your trading volume over the prior month. The fact that the thing was tested with such a small amount of BTC means they were probably paying the highest fee tier.

You are close. This is poloniex exchange's new fee model. https://poloniex.com/fees/

So I see it says that the bot made 23k trades. What kind of volume did it reach with only 1BTC? When it made a trade did it always go all in?

nope, only small trades to start. average trade was 0.05 BTC, total volume was 1200 BTC
