I'm very interested. I've thought of bitcoin bots but haven't had the time really get into it yet.

just a couple of questions:

How long is it between ticks?

How easily will it be to get money in or out of your system?

Is there any long term storage assigned to the bots? (something that will survive a server reset)

Edit: I just realized that the example uses a storage variable. Can you give me details about that (how large, stable, secure, etc it is)?




Hey, thanks for checking it out.

How long is it between ticks?

This will be customizable with values in the region of 5 mins, 10 mins, 30 mins etc. We'll be experimenting with this in the beta.

How easily will it be to get money in or out of your system?

We don't hold any funds. Your exchange gives you API keys that you configure with us, so that we can make trades on your behalf.

Is there any long term storage assigned to the bots?

Yes, we plan to persist all the necessary state in case the server goes down.

The 'storage' variable is just a reference to a subclassed dict with some extra functionality like dot-notation. We'll probably pickle it (or something similar) for persistence, which should mean that it can handle a fair amount of data thrown at it.
