Performance of single coin Ethereum and Bitcoin trading-bots

Several botcreators have build trading-bots that trade with a single coin. I have been following the bots that focus on trading ETH (Ethereum coin) and BTC (Bitcoin).

On the bots platform two trading bots trade with Ethereum.

Botcreator Rave before the Machine introduces Dr. Spock. According to the botcreator the bot is looking to outperform the market by avoiding large losses. Analysis is key for Dr. Spock to step out of a trade perfectly in time, just before the tip of crash.

Botcreator Team Agga Technologies created Refreshing Grey Mia, a balanced long-term risk strategy. According to the botcreator the bot is a trend following strategy focused merely on the larger upsides of the crypto market. Based on machine learning this bot’s strategy has been highly optimized to generate a superior risk-return rate.

Sound promosing. Let’s evaluate the bot performances over the last 9 weeks up to today, Nov. 26th 2020.

9 Week performance of single coin Ethereum bots
9 Week performance of single coin Ethereum bots

The grey line in the chart represents the performance of the Ethereum coin over the last 9 weeks. The orange line shows the performance of Dr. Spock, the Ethereum bot of botcreator Rave before the Machine. The blue line follows the performance of Refreshing Grey Mia made by botcreator Team Agga Technologies.

The graph shows that Ethereum has climbed to a profit of more than 70%, before falling back to a 39,5% gain over the 9-week period, after today’s correction. A result that both trading-bots haven’t been able to even approximately reach. Dr. Spock has been able to score a maximum gain of 1,67% and stands at -11,15% today. Refreshing Grey Mia has had a negative result during the complete 9-week period and stands at -9,76% today.

Disappointing results after reading the promising bot descriptions. Let’s see if the Bitcoin bots have been able to build a better track record.

On the bots platform four trading bots trade with Bitcoin.

Botcreator Boosting Alpha has developed Himalaya to generate a stable and moderate performance without the high risk normally associated with crypto investments.

Botcreator Rave before the Machine has two Bitcoin bots, Dr. Block and Dr. Block 2. Dr. Block is looking for a bit more security, a risk spreader which uses small steps when getting into assets. Dr. Block 2 is it’s sibling, has the same characteristics but different variables. It looks over a longer piece of the timeline than it’s brother does.

Finally Team Agga Technologies have created Sweet Orange Mia as a balanced long-term strategy, again a trend following strategy focused merely on the larger upsides of the crypto market. Based on machine learning this bot’s strategy has been highly optimized to generate a superior risk-return rate.

Let’s see how the Bitcoin bots have been performing over the last 8 weeks.

8 Week performance of the single coin Bitcoin trading bots

The lightblue line represents the development of the Bitcoin price over the last 8 weeks. Bitcoin has reached an incredible 83% growth before falling to a 56,3% gain today, Nov. 26th 2020. The best performing Bitcoin trading-bot in the past 8 weeks is Dr. Block 2 represented by the yellow line in the graph, with a gain of 20,6%. Sweet Orange Mia (darkblue line) has gained as much as 29% before losing 12% in a single day today, closing on a 15,5% profit. Dr. Block (grey line) has shown steady growth to finish the 8-week period with a gain of 14%. Himalaya (orange line) reached a nearly 30% profit, but hasn’t been able to hold on to it’s gains falling more than 16% today to a profit of 11,6%.

The results presented above are measured over a relatively short period of 8 and 9 weeks, and it is probably to early to attach conclusions to them. The development of the profits could tell something about the aggressiveness of the various bots, and can help in deciding to choose the best bot according to your risk appetite.

I will continue to follow the performance of the bots over the coming period.
