btc-robot-intro

With the constant release of newer and faster Bitcoin ASIC miners and the increase of mining difficulty it is getting harder and harder for the average person interested in crypto currencies to mine BTC. So the alternative of making profit from Bitcoin trading instead of mining them is becoming more and more attractive to normal people and to people that are not the typical traders with experience from Forex or Stock trading. So these people, and not only they, are looking for different tools to help them in trading Bitcoins on the currently available crypto exchanges. We’ve already tested and reviewed some of the available tools, such as Cryptotrader and Butter Bot, sharing our experience and thoughts about them. We just started testing another similar product called BTC Robot that has been available for a while already, so you can expect us to start sharing our usage experience from this automated Bitcoin trading solution in the next days here on the blog.

Meanwhile we are going to talk a bit more about the product and what are our first thoughts about it after starting to use it, something that may help you understand what to expect as the website of the BTC Robot software somewhat lacks a lot of details. What we saw as information available about the software is what would be useful to people that are new into Bitcoin and all that crypto currency stuff, but want to see what the hype is all about and of course want to make some money out of the whole thing. There is not much information about where, how and what this automated Bitcoin trading bot will do and how it will trade and this is what people that are into BTC and cryptos would want to know about the BTC Robot software, before going for it. So while this trading bot may appeal to the average person it won’t seem very attractive for the people that are into crypto currency already, though this does not mean that it will not be useful for these people as well. What we’ll try to give you here is the information that you cannot find on the introductory page and you can learn only after you start using the trading software and later on, in the next few days, we’ll share our results with what trades the robot does…

btc-robot-silver-plan

In order to be able to use the BTC Robot automated Bitcoin trading robot you will need to purchase it. Unfortunately there is no trial version available that you could try, before you buy, however there is an alternative option present – 60 days money back guarantee. This means that you can try the software for 60 days and if you are not happy with the results you can get your money back, suggesting that the makers of the software are very certain that you will be satisfied by the results and keep using the software. There are three different plans that will give you access to the automated trading system. The Silver Plan that will give you a downloadable version of the software that you need to install and run on your computer available for $149 USD with a one-time license fee and no extra subscriptions or fees. We’ve got for this version of the product, but bear in mind that you would need to have it installed on a computer running 24/7 with a stable Internet connection in order to get the best possible results when the software runs from your computer. The second option is called the Gold Plan and is available for $248 USD that includes the access to the trading software installed on a VPS (in the cloud) for a one year. This means that you get access through your browser and the trading will be on all the time without having to run it on your computer and have the system on all the time, the disadvantage here is that you will have to renew the VPS service after 1 year. The third option called Platinum Plan will cost you $498 USD and will give you access to the trading software installed on a VPS (in the cloud) server three years. The Platinum plan also includes a LTC Robot, a Litecoin trading robot as a bonus, though you can also get a separate license for it as well. We may also test the Litecoin trading robot in the future if we are satisfied with the results we get from the Bitcoin trading system.

Back to the BTC Robot automated Bitcoin trading robot and what you actually get with it. As soon as you install and run it, or when you access it on a VPS server, you will get a simple and easy to use interface with the trading settings and profit and Bitcoin pricing information available. The software is designed to use the BTC-E exchange and trades only the BTC/USD exchange pair there, so you will need to have an account in that crypto currency exchange already in order to use the trading bot. In order for the robot to be able to trade you will need to generate an API key for it at the BTC-E exchange, you can find that option in the settings panel of the exchange. The only other thing you need to select is the trading aggressiveness of the software based on the risk/reward expectations you have, you can select between Conservative, Medium and Aggressive mode or use your own custom settings.

Other than that you have a graph for your balance and profit and about how the BTC exchange rate is going not only on BTC-E, but also on MtGox and Bitstamp, though the bot only trades on BTC-E. According to the developers of the software you can can make anywhere from 5% to 100% profit per month depending on the market situation and your trading settings. The more volatile the market the higher profit you can make, but if the market is flat then there could be some periods of slow action and that is completely normal to expect. Once the bot starts making trades you will see the Buy and Sell actions listed on the right under the Last Operations section, though we still haven’t seen any trades on our end, but we’ve just started using the robot.

We have started our testing of the BTC Robot automated Bitcoin trading robot with a small amount of BTC in our BTC-E account in order to get a feel of the product and in case of not seeing good results not to loose money. The trading mode we have selected is Aggressive as we are willing to risk a bit more with the chance of higher profitability, so stay tuned for more information in the next few days as the trading software starts doing some trades.

stratum-mining-proxy

The original reason to use a local stratum proxy server is to be able to bridge some mining hardware designed to use the older getwork protocol to newer pools that use the better stratum protocol. An example of such devices are ASICminer’s Erupter Blade and Erupter Cube Bitcoin ASICs – these devices have a built-in miner software, however it uses the older getwork protocol and you would need to use a local stratum proxy in order to be able to set these devices to mine on a stratum-based BTC mining pool. Below you can find a link to download the Windows version of the stratum mining proxy, and here you can find the source code of the project.

You can however also use the stratum proxy locally in order to easily control all of your miners at once, if you point the miner to the local proxy server you only need to change the pool that the proxy will connect to and all of the miners will be redirected to that pool, so no need to individually change them. The stratum proxy will work with both getwork and stratum miners and will connect them to stratum pool on the other side.

How to configure the proxy server:

mining_proxy.exe -o uk1.ghash.io -p 3333

The above example will run the stratum proxy server on the IP address of the system it is running on and it will start to listen on local ports 3333 (stratum) and 8332 (getwork) and the miners that connect to them locally will be getting work from the uk1.ghash.io mining pool that will be connected on port 3333 externally. That is all you have to do, it is quick and easy to configure and use the stratum mining proxy.
