How to do Automated Bitcoin Algo Trading via BTC-e Trade API

FavoriteLoadingAdd to favorites

In this tutorial, you are shown how to use Python to communicate with a bitcoin trade API. In this case, we are using BTC-e’s Trade API, though the trade APIs are all relatively similar. From here, you can use Python to create further logic to execute trades for you. From here, you can automatically trade Bitcoin, Litecoin, and more algorithmically based on programming logic.

All viewers should understand that this is live trading, and any mistakes or poor decisions can result in the loss of some or all of their cryptocurrencies or fiat money. Be careful! Also take note that you are trusting a 3rd party with your bitcoin here. Do not put money on any exchange or with any 3rd party that you cannot afford to lose.

There are many videos in my channel concerning backtesting and creating trade strategies.

    I’m trying to translate this to python 3.4. For the hashed = line, the program expected bytes but got "str" instead. Does anyone know how to fix this problem?

    Thanks for the great tutorial.  I was wondering if you might share how you fund your BTC-e account?  All the mechanisms listed on the website seem super sketchy, and I haven’t seen many good stories from people who’ve used the likes of Perfect Money, Payeer, OKPAY, etc.  Is there a reliable way to deposit USD?

    +Eric Shipley Sure, if you can make a proper algorithm to do it.

    I get the 200 OK message but I keep getting this error after it: {"success":0,"error":"invalid sign"} What does the invalid sign mean?
