    AMA: I algo trade the Bitshares Distributed Exchange

    I have developed a suite of tools for the bitshares distributed exchange (DEX)

    extinctionEVENT.py
    microDEX.py
    metaNODE.py
    latencyTEST.py

    they are all open source and free to use, license:

    Code:
    WTFPL v0 ca. 1765
    
    if any([taxes,licenses]):
        return (tar, feathers)
    you can find these on my github:

    https://github.com/litepresence/extinction-event/EV


    to download the official bitshares ui and learn more about bitshares, go here:

    metaNODE.py

    metaNODE is a client side mesh network tool I developed for interacting with Bitshares Public DEX Nodes in a trustless manner. The tool scans the bitshares network for latest orderbook and account data and then statistically verifies that data vs other nodes in the public network. metaNODE then writes metaNODE.txt (in a race condition proof manner) which contains a dictionary of orderbook and account data. Other apps can then read like a high speed personal API of verified DEX data.

    You can read the metaNODE whitepaper here: https://github.com/litepresence/exti...aster/metaNODE

    extinctionEVENT.py

    extinctionEVENT (EV) is a simple moving average trading tool which splits the market into Bull/Bear state and then trades on different thresholds depending on state. Is capable of producing live moving averages from 5m scale to daily candle scale; all at 5m resolution. EV also includes a backtesting engine for optimizing your algorithm. extinctionEVENT.py gets DEX data from metaNODE.txt. The utilities also import centralized exchange data from cryptocompare.com for visualization, backtesting, and decision making.

    microDEX.py

    microDEX is user interface much like you'd find when trading at a centralized exchange. It has a chart, order books, recent market trades, and authenticated buy/sell/cancel. Like EV gets its DEX data from metaNODE and CEX data from cryptocompare.

    latencyTEST.py

    latencyTEST first reaches out to github and searches for lists of bitshares nodes on user accounts known to keep up on such things. It then takes the lists from each user and makes one huge list; the universe. The nodes in the universe may or may not be active though, so then it attempts to contact each node to verify that it 1) responds 2) is running the correct software 3) its clock is not stale. From the nodes in the known universe it generates a list of available public api websockets and writes a file nodes.txt with that list. It also outputs a nodesmap.png image file. nodes.txt is used later by metaNODE.py to to gather DEX data.

    all combined are about 8000 lines of python;
    all freeware, open source, no fees, no black boxes, no centralized crypto exchange to be hacked, shut down, or ddos'd.
    "stable release" stage of development


    24/7 buy/sell/cancel on the DEX (distributed exchange)
    I've demonstrated months of uninterrupted uptime.

    Code:
    LICENSE:
    
    'litepresence 2018'
    
    def WTFPL_v0_March_1765():
        if any([stamps, licenses, taxation, regulation, fiat, etat]):
            try:
                print('no thank you')
            except:
                return [tar, feathers]
    
    I've been live 9 months trading a moving average cross signal with about 20 day buy/sell frequency and maintaining scalp orders. All orders are updated every 5 minutes. I've had very little downtime and no rogue data from the DEX.

    This is microDEX.py it is a buy/sell/cancel utility with orderbooks and a live chart




    This is latencyTEST.py which creates a list of latency sorted Bitshares public API nodes and lets you know where they are in the world.




    This is from my backtest engine extinctionEVENT.py:

    This is pretty.
    In New Zealand:
    The Coastguard is a Charity
    Air Traffic Control is a private company run on user fees
    The DMV is a private non-profit
    Rescue helicopters and ambulances are operated by charities and are plastered with corporate logos
    The agriculture industry has zero subsidies
    5% of the national vote, gets you 5 seats in Parliament
    A tax return has 4 fields
    Business licenses aren't even a thing nor are capital gains taxes
    Constitutional right to refuse any type of medical care

    Okay, I need to spend more time here. I've hardly ever used Bitshares DEX but that's awesome. I run the ronpaulcoin.cc site in case you're up for ever creating anything I can link to, just sayin

    how do you connect to remote BTS nodes? RPC, REST API?
