New features / changes in v12

  • Bitmex support: Gunbot now supports leveraged trading at Bitmex and Bitmex testnet. The new PRE_ORDER function lets you get ahead of the order book to increase the chance limit orders get filled. With MAKER_FEES all trades can be placed as post only orders, making Gunbot a market maker!

  • Margin trading strategies: Strategies for Bitmex offer triggers to go long, short, stop and close on the desired ROE - or trail ROE up!

  • Blockchain license verification: Using GUNTHY token, it is now possible to self-manage your API keys for free.

  • Improved ichimoku: Both the regular and margin version of the ichimoku strategy got a lot more powerful, you can now choose to open and close trades using either Tenkan-Sen, Kumo or Kijun-Sen.

  • Market orders: Option to use market orders instead of limit orders, customizable for all order types. Works on exchanges that support Market orders: Binance, Bitfinex, Bitmex, Coinbase Pro, Kraken and Poloniex.

  • List view in GUI dashboard: New list view for pairs on the dashoard: all relevant info in one quick overview, improves load times especially for setups with many trading pairs.

  • Chart improvements: The GUI can now show all Gunbot supported indicators. Trading targets are now shown in charts.

  • Renko candles: You can now use Renko candles instead of regular candle sticks (Currently only works for margin trading with ichimoku).

  • Deprecating CANCEL_ORDERS_CYCLE_CAP except when using MAKER_FEES: orders are now only automatically cancelled if bid/ask are above/below the order rate.

  • Retain GUI access on startup errors: Automatically stop Gunbot core when ran without pairs. If startup errors occur, a Telegram notification is sent and core gets stopped.

  • Dark theme for the settings page: the settings page in the GUI is now dark.

  • Renamed executables: the main executable files got renamed to be more coherent between operating systems.

  • Various small changes

Download the update and unpack it to a new folder, copy the config.js and gunbotgui.db files from your previous v11 installation into the new folder to keep your settings. In case you used https for the GUI, also make sure to copy both the key and certificate files to the new folder.

If you have pairs that are already in DU or RT, also copy the /json folder from v11 to v12.

New strategy parameters for v12 will be automatically added through the GUI the first time you update a strategy. This happens on a per strategy basis.

Due to new libraries used, you cannot simply overwrite the executable for this release.
