Cryptohopper- In recent years, the industry and understanding of cryptocurrencies have experienced astonishing growth. The market niche that this new technology has presented, has created the opportunity for many normal people to amass a good quantity of cryptocurrencies in their wallets, leading to an exponential growth in their wealth.
Even though they are quite young, cryptocurrencies have proved to be very trustworthy for many different purposes. The crypto community relies heavily on this new way of payments and wealth storage, which makes them want to accumulate more and more cryptocurrencies. There are three ways to do it: buying with fiat money; mining/staking; trading cryptocurrencies. Very possibly, the latter is the cheapest and most profitable of all of them.
This has led to a steady rise in the number of automated trading bots. These platforms allow the user to trade cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin and Ethereum automatically. You can be sleeping, working or simply not in front of your computer’s screen, no matter what, your bot will keep trading crypto to increase the value of your portfolio.

Types of trading bots
As mentioned above, Cryptohopper has surprised everybody after the release of two new bots that have been highly requested by many crypto traders. Now, the platform counts with three different trading bots to let the user customise his strategy to the next level: The trading bot with indicators and candlestick patterns, the market maker bot and the exchange/market arbitrage bot.
Let’s dive a bit deeper into the recently released ones .
- Market Maker bot
Market making is a very common practice among high-frequency traders. It consists of trading the difference between the bid (buy price) and the ask (sell price), also known as the spread.
After setting up the market you would like to trade and in which exchange you would like to do so, your hopper will start trading the spread. Tirelessly 24/7. This new type of bot brings the user closer to advanced trading methods in an incredibly user-friendly way.
- Exchange and Market Arbitrage bot
In the crypto market, arbitrage has proved to be an incredibly efficient trading strategy. It takes advantage of market inefficiencies to pocket price differences among cryptocurrencies. Price differences mainly caused by the high volatility of these markets.
Even though it might seem like one bot, it is two different bots: The market arbitrage bot and the exchange bot.
Let’s begin with the market arbitrage bot. It refers to the type of arbitrage carried out in one single exchange. But, you might wonder, how is it possible to spot price divergences within the same exchange? The answer is through a third coin, also called triangular arbitrage.
Example: the bot has found a triangular arbitrage opportunity between the coins BTC, ETH and LTC. Let’s say that your base coin is BTC. Then, the bot will sell BTC to buy ETH. Thereafter, it will sell the ETH to buy LTC. And finally, it will sell LTC to buy back BTC. This loop will end up increasing your BTC portfolio due to price divergences in the process.
Exchange arbitrage implies buying certain cryptocurrencies in exchanges where they are cheap, to thereafter sell them in another exchange for a higher price. This strategy has proved to be highly profitable in the crypto market for several years, and now it is possible to automate your exchange arbitrage strategy! Something that no one has been able to do before in an automated manner and for commercial use.
Just by having an account on, at least, two exchanges and funding them with the cryptos you would like do arbitrage with, the hopper will start trading market inefficiencies. No matter if you are in front of the charts or not, the hopper will keep trading.
Market inefficiencies sometimes are notable in the cryptocurrency market. Having this bot will, no doubt, capture them immediately and keep the gain in your wallet.
Wrapping up, Cryptohopper is a very complete trading platform where the user can automate a trading strategy and copy experience traders, as well as put in practice advanced trading strategies like arbitrage and market-making. And most importantly, so user-friendly that everyone can become a trader!
