CRYPTO ARBITRAGE TRADER
The Crypto Arbitrage Trader bot should not be confused with C.A.T, which is a closed-source paid trading bot for cryptocurrency users. Crypto Arbitrage Trader’s source code can be found on GitHub. The project was initially announced in 2013 and includes support for Coins-E, BTC-E, and Vircurex. However, no major updates have occurred over the past four years, and some users complained there are a few bugs in the code.
This particular bitcoin arbitrage bot can be used for different purposes, although it appears only one exchange is supported at this time. BTC-E is a somewhat popular trading platform, yet there is not always an arbitrage opportunity to take advantage of. tAPIbot’s source code is available on GitHub, thus allowing experienced users to implement support for other exchanges if they feel the need to do so.
Bitcoin Dealer is another bitcoin arbitrage bot that can only be used for one particular exchange. In this case, that exchange is Bitstamp, which is far more popular compared to BTC-E. Bitcoin Dealer can be found on GitHub as well, although it appears the bot has not received any major developer updates for quite some time now.
It is not hard to see the similarities between Bitcoin Arbitrage and Bitcoin Dealer. However, when it comes to exchanges, Bitcoin Arbitrage is more flexible, with support for Bitstamp, Paymium, and Coinbase. Using multiple exchanges increases the odds of finding successful bitcoin arbitrage opportunities.
We briefly touched upon Gekko in our top bitcoin trading bots article, yet it appears the bot also has some arbitrage features. It supports a wide range of exchanges, including Kraken, BTC-E, CEX, and Bitstamp. The entire project is open source and can be found on GitHub.
Blackbird is an open source bitcoin arbitrage bot written in the C++ language. What makes this project so appealing is how BlackBird supports multiple exchange platforms, including Bitfinex, OKCoin, Kraken, and Gemini. Blackbird is a very easy-to-use arbitrage bot, once everything has been set up. In fact, there are clear instructions on how to set everything up, which makes the bot quite approachable.

General risk warning
Buying, selling and investing in shares (even in bitcoin or other cryptocurrency, including investing into mining) is never without risk. The market itself can go down as well as up, and the companies you pick can perform badly. If you are going to invest it is important to research potential investments to see if they are suitable for you. Make sure you do not invest more than you can afford to lose. You can also consider investing in a number of unrelated stocks in order to spread your risk.
- Past performance of an investment is no guide to its performance in the future.
- Investments, or income from them, can go down as well as up.
- Risk can be brought about by the performance of world markets, interest rates, taxes on income and capital, and foreign exchange rates.
- You may not necessarily get back any of the amount you invested.
- Smaller company shares can be relatively illiquid, meaning they could be harder to trade, which makes them higher risk.
- Content and information about potential investments are designed for general use, and so cannot be considered personal to your circumstances or your financial position.
- This site does not offer advice.
- If you are unsure about any investment or financial decision, you should seek expert independent advice.
Full Risk Warning
- The market information relating to the past performance of an investment is not necessarily a guide to its performance in the future. The value of investments or income from them may go down as well as up. As stocks and shares are valued from second to second, their bid and offer value fluctuates sometimes widely. The degree of fluctuation of fund values varies significantly and the value of higher volatility funds may change suddenly. The value of investments may rise or fall due to the volatility of world markets, interest rates and capital values or, for investments held in overseas markets, changes in the rate of exchange in the currency in which the investments are denominated. You may not necessarily get back the amount you invested.
- Taxes may affect the net value of your investments and income received from them. Levels and bases of, and reliefs from, taxation are subject to change as legislation and regulations and the tax regime are amended from time to time. Any content on this site referring to such legislation, regulations or tax regime should not be relied upon.
