Welcome to Passivbot!¶
Use at your own risk! You should never trade with money you cannot or are are afraid to miss.
YOU ALONE ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR HOW THE BOT BEHAVES, AND FOR ANY LOSSES THAT MAY BE A RESULT OF USING THE BOT!
If you don't understand how the bot works, you should not use it. You are always welcome to ask for help or get more information on how it works exactly if the documentation does not provide enough information.
Passivbot is a fully automated trading bot built in Python. The goal of Passivbot is to provide a stable, low-risk trading bot that is able to accumulate profit over time without manual actions.
Passivbot trades using futures markets, using an advanced form of grid trading to place opening and closing orders.
It provides support for automatically optimize configurations, backtest using historic data, and running in live mode.
Currently the exchanges Binance and Bybit are implemented and supported for trading futures. The bot does not use ccxt, so other exchanges cannot be used.
Not all functionality is supported on bot exchanges, depending on the APIs that bot exchanges expose and development efforts.
If you would like to have support added for an exchange not supported yet, you can always get in touch to see what the options are.
The following requirements are applicable for installing Passivbot:
- Git 2.17 or above
- Python 3.8.x (newer versions aren't supported yet)
- Supported OS:
Passivbot is a very lightweight bot, and can easily be run live on a single-core machine with 1GB of RAM. While the hardware requirements are very low, you may run into issues when running it on things like a Raspberry Pi. In case you do, please let us know so we can help out & improve the bot!
Be aware that running an optimize on a long period may require a lot of memory and CPU power. Since Passivbot acts on trade data (ticks) instead of OHLCV data, the amount of memory is dependent on the amount of trades made in the selected time period. If you want to optimize on BTC for the last 365 days, it will take significantly more memory than optimizing on a coin like BTS for example.
For running the optimizer, a minimum of 8gb of memory is recommended.
It should be very possible to run multiple bots on a single machine. Be aware however that you may run into other limitations like rate limiting of exchanges.
Passivbot is released freely without conditions. Anybody may copy, distribute, modify, use or misuse for commercial, non-commercial, educational or non-educational purposes, censor, claim as one's own or otherwise do whatever without permission from anybody.
