This tutorial will go through the process of creating a trading bot for Cryptocurrency using Node.js. The tutorial will focus on three Cryptocurrencies, Ether, Bitcoin & Litecoin. First, we’ll look at how to create a wallet for each of these currencies using the Coinbase API, and then add code in to successfully create transactions, finishing with a simple yet well known trading algorithm that also considers trading fee’s and 1 day rolling historical data. Once we’ve created our service, we’ll set it live with test money to see how it does, followed by real cash at the end.
