A Node Express app built using the Heroku CLI for monitoring arbitrage opportunities and auto trading within a single crypto currency exchange and between different exchanges.
Arbitrage is the simultaneous purchase and sale of an asset to profit from a difference in the price. It is a trade that profits by capitalizing on the price differences of identical/similar commodities on the same exchange or different exchanges.
rBitrage.io uses a number of open source projects to work properly:
Optional for recording opportunities
This application supports the Getting Started with Node on Heroku article - check it out.
$ git clone firstname.lastname@example.org:flavioespinoza/rBitrage.io.git $ cd rBitrage.io //or your prefferd directory $ npm install
Open up the index.js file and enter the following:
const passphrase = '<your_passphrase>' const key = '<your_api_key>' const b64secret = '<your_secret_key>'
$ npm start
Your app should now be running on localhost:5000.
$ heroku create $ git push heroku master $ heroku open
