Turn a Raspberry Pi into a crypto trading bot #PiDay #RaspberryPi @Raspberry_Pi
u/Superalgos posts on Reddit turning a Raspberry Pi into a crypto trading bot with no extra hardware and open-source software.
This is what you’ll need for this cool Pi project:
Raspberry Pi 2GB RAM ($40). If you plan to run long (multi-year) backtests you will likely need the 4GB or 8GB version (2 GB is enough for shorter backtests and trading live).
Flash-card, 16Gb ($7).
Raspbian / Ubuntu ($0, open-source).
Node.JS ($0, open-source).
Git ($0, open-source).
Superalgos (0$, open-source).
The set up created is the minimum expression of a trading farm. If you have more Raspberries, or even old laptops or desktops gathering dust in the closet, pull them out, and set them up as new nodes on the Network!
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
