In 2017 I devoted some time to learning about blockchain and cryptocurrency. I read the original Bitcoin whitepaper and source code, and all manner of other related literature.


That summer I started a company with a friend and set about building software to scan for arbitrage opportunities across cryptocurrency exchanges. The software allowed for different exchanges to be queried from a signal API so that their spot prices and order books could be compared easily. Parallel HTTP requests were supported for performance and throttling was included to respect API rate limits.


  • Languages :

    Python

  • Components :

    Python Requests, gevent

  • Tools :

    Vim

The arbitrage scanner featured a text based interface. A source code sample is more interesting.
