Cryptocurrency trading and Crypto Bots — Top 5 Crypto bots

The crypto market is comparatively a very volatile space where the market sees a lot of turbulence during the day. A lot of times, users capitalize on this swinging behaviour and make lots of money through day and swing trading but making successful and profitable trades requires continuous financial analysis and monitoring of graphs throughout the day. Unlike stocks, the crypto market runs 24 hours a day due to which traders miss out on massive opportunities while they’re asleep or out doing chores. This can be avoided by using crypto bots instead of trading manually for yourself.

Crypto bots are computer programs which require a set of instructions for them to execute a trade on behalf of a user. These instructions usually contain the amount of a certain digital asset to buy or sell when it hits a certain amount of value. These bots are used to maximize profits and minimize any risks associated with trading. These bots are fairly customizable and can be connected to your exchange accounts through APIs where they can buy and sell according to the instructions. To make the process secure and free of scams, you get to control the number of IPs which can add instructions apart from which you can limit the API so that the bot cannot initiate withdrawal procedure on its own.
