Attention (Before you begin)

You need some funds in your account in order to trade. But before you do, I telling you, you need to practise your strategies first. Otherwise I promise you will loose money/crypto.

Set your bot to run in testmode. This way you can run different strategies and test different things out.

TEST TEST TEST. Then when you are ready..Test again.

Profit Trailer and any other bot, is only as good as you code it.

How to install Profit Trailer on Raspberry Pi

Below are the commands to install needed software and Profit Trailer on your Raspberry Pi.  I highly recommend to use DietPi now instead of Raspbian.  DietPi is a fantastic image as it allows you to easily install dozens of software and scripts for Pi’s.  It’s also very efficient as a lot is stripped of the image.  Detailed instructions on how to install DietPi can be found here https://dietpi.com/phpbb/viewtopic.php?t=9.  You can copy/paste one line at a time and enter them on your VPS via SSH.

The steps below are using DietPi. If you are not using dietpi, you may get errors

sudo apt update && apt upgrade -y
sudo apt install unzip nano curl -y
sudo apt install default-jdk -y
sud apt install npm -y
curl -sL https://deb.nodesource.com/setup_10.x | sudo -E bash
sudo apt install nodejs -y
npm install pm2@latest -g

cd /var/opt
wget https://github.com/taniman/profit-trailer/releases/download/2.4.27/ProfitTrailer-2.4.27.zip
