Trademinator works differently than other trading bots. It has a client-server scheme which allows you to use a low-end hardware while keeping your private information with you. The following pictures show the basic chat between Trademinator open-source client and Trademinator Server. Please note these charts do not show exceptional cases, for example when you are running without a license.
- Trademinator open-source client pulls from the exchange private information: balance and opened orders. The open-source client does some math with that data.
- Trademinator open-source client asks Trademinator Server if it is a good time to do any trading action (sell or buy) involving the XXX_YYY pair (for example USDT_BTC). Trademinator open-source client will also send the math calculations. Please note that your private key will NOT be transmitted.
- Trademinator Server connects to the exchange, pulls public information and does math calculations to take a call.
- Trademinator Server will answer the Trademinator open-source client with a suggestion about what to do. The open-source client will do some extra calculation using your private information to decide the ultimate action.
- If suggested action from Trademinator Server is different than nothing, and final calculations from the open-source client agree with that, then the open-source client will send a trading direction to the exchange.
More technical information will be discussed in other articles of the Trademinator Knowledge Base.
