The American cryptocurrency exchange Coinbase Pro, also known by its old name GDAX, provides traders with many advanced trading features. In particular, it allows you to trade with the highest leverage in the market – 500:1, provides competitive commissions, insurance coverage for all assets held, and an industry-leading API.

The last point is especially important when creating trading bots – software for automating the work of traders. In this article, we will take a closer look at how such tools work, why they are useful, and how they are developed.

Types of trading bots Types of bots

Depending on the format of use in the markets, trading bots are divided into four main types. Let’s consider them in more detail:

  • Trend-following bots. They monitor the situation in the markets and use trend signals to enter a short or long position.
  • Bots for lending. They allow you to earn by providing assets to margin traders at interest.
  • Arbitrage bots. They are used to make money on price imbalances that may occur in various markets. To do this, they track the price of coins on different exchanges, futures and options markets.
  • Market maker bots. They are involved in trading within the spread, due to which they generate a fairly high profit. In fact, they buy assets at the bid price and sell to investors at the ask price.

Our team can develop any kind of trading bots and uses the most relevant and productive technologies for this, but we’ll talk about this a little further.

Benefits of trading bots


Benefits of trading bots Benefits

A trading bot is, first of all, an automation tool capable of performing most of a trader’s routine tasks. However, the use of such tools provides other important advantages:

  • Fast reaction. The bot instantly reacts to any changes in the market, due to which it allows you to earn more both in short and long distances.
  • Lack of emotion. During operation, the bot is guided not by emotions and feelings, but by cold calculation and algorithms, which reduces the risk of human errors.
  • Management of risks. The bot has built-in risk management strategies that it can automatically deploy to mitigate losses in adverse market conditions.
  • Multitasking. Unlike a human, a bot is able to perform many tasks at the same time, which increases the efficiency of a trader.

Technology stack selection


Technology stack selection Technology

As we wrote above, when developing a crypto bot for Coinbase Pro, our team uses only modern and innovative technologies. Most often, the CCXT library becomes the basis of the stack. It provides public and private APIs out of the box, and also supports work not only on Coinbase Pro, but also on more than 120 other crypto exchanges, which is especially useful when creating market maker bots.

To work with CCXT, you can use one of three programming languages – Python, PHP, and JavaScript (Node.js). Accordingly, developers have the opportunity to choose the most appropriate stack for each specific project.

If we talk about the implementation of the frontend part, then any technology can be used here: standard JavaScript / HTML / CSS or reactive frameworks such as Vue.js and React.js.

In addition, our team can develop a mobile application that allows a trader to manage the bot directly from their smartphone. To this end, the following technologies will be used:

  • Native – Kotlin/Java for Android and Swift for IOS.
  • Cross-platform – Flutter framework and Dart language.

(Ua) Як відбувається процес розробки (Ua) Етапи розробки

(Ua) Розробка торгового бота – досить складний процес, що складається з шести послідовних етапів. Нижче ми розглянемо, які роботи виконуються на кожному з них:

  • Збір інформації. Починаючи роботу над проєктом, команда вивчає потреби, завдання та пріоритети замовника. На основі цих даних складається верхньорівнева документація.
  • Проєктування. Формується прототип бота, який включає: варфрейми інтерфейсу, опис всього функціоналу та блок-схеми модулів.

(Ua) Також ретельно опрацьовується математика проєкту – формули, які будуть закладені у код для виконання розрахунків. Щоб спростити комунікацію з клієнтом, для демонстрації мокапа клієнту наша команда записує презентаційні ролики, які дозволяють зрозуміти, як саме працюватиме і виглядатиме торговий бот після релізу.

  • Розробка дизайну. Команда дизайнерів опрацьовує UI-концепцію бота та формує привабливий, зручний та комфортний для користувача інтерфейс. Для досягнення найкращого результату ми зазвичай пропонуємо кілька варіантів концепцій візуального оточення.

  • Frontend. Коли дизайн-мокапи готові та затверджені, розробники приступають до розробки клієнтської частини торгового бота. Фронтенд-розробка включає верстку, створення анімацій, таблиць та інших компонентів, які браузер може читати, записувати чи виводити екран користувача.
  • Backend. Серверна частина торгового бота відповідає за обробку, зберігання і передачу даних стороні клієнта. При її реалізації розробники проєктують бази даних, пишуть код функціоналу, підключають API та вибудовують клієнт-серверну архітектуру. Для підвищення ефективності бота ми також можемо розробляти та впроваджувати інноваційні рішення на основі нейронних мереж та штучного інтелекту.


  • Тестування. Після завершення розробки торговий бот проходить тестування, під час якого всі модулі та функції перевіряються на наявність помилок. Це завдання виконують QA-інженери.
  • Техпідтримка та розвиток. Далі бот виходить в реліз і може використовуватися для торгівлі на Coinbase Pro. Але паралельно з цим важливо зосередитись на подальшому розвитку проєкту, щоб його функціонал завжди відповідав актуальним вимогам ринку. Для цього ми пропонуємо підключити бот до нашої технічної підтримки.
