Boosting Alpha introducing BTC/BNB based Bots

Boosting Alpha introducing BTC/BNB based Bots

Boosting Alpha logo

As there are many concerns regarding to USDT and its lack of transparency, we would like to share that we have also bots in BTC based or ETH based, that means the return is calculated in growing of the NR of BTC or ETH you hold, not the FIAT value return.

Now we are introducing BTC/BNB based bots. All of these algorithms invest in BTC respectively BNB pairs. The annual return and drawdown is calculated in terms of the basecoin, not in EUR or USD. So these algorithms are always exposed to the crypto market, since when they are in cash they are still invested in either BTC or BNB.

These algorithms are useful for people which are bullish long-term on the crypto market and have a so-called HODL philosophy. They should allow you to gain more BTC or BNB while continuously being exposed to the market 1The Sortino ratio is a variation of the Sharpe ratio that differentiates harmful volatility from total overall volatility by using the asset’s standard deviation of negative portfolio returns, downside deviation, instead of the total standard deviation of portfolio returns..

The bots-series are named “BTC Relativity Mix x” and “BTC Relativity Multi Coin x” and will be published under the “Illuminati” (II) trade mark, in the coming month, after the current Quarantaine period.

Performance of single coin Ethereum and Bitcoin trading-bots update 2

A new bi-weekly update on the performance of the Bitcoin and Ethereum crypto trading bots on the Revenyou Bots platform. This blog adds two weeks of data to the last update found here.

Performance of single coin Ethereum and Bitcoin trading-bots update

Bitcoin has been on an exeptional bullrun rallying more than 45% in value in the past two weeks to more than $28.000. If we compare that run to the performance of the Bitcoin crypto trading bots we see the following results.

Performance Bitcoin and BTC Bots

In percentage (2 weeks ago):

    1. Bitcoin (green line): +154,84% (+72,33%)
    2. Himalaya by botcreator Boosting Alpha (orange line): +50,60% (+28,82%)
    3. Sweet Orange Mia by botcreator Agga Technologies (blue line): +31,63% (+14,12%)
    4. Dr Block 2 by botcreator Rave before the machine (yellow line): +31,62% (+27,88%)
    5. Dr Block by botcreator Rave before the machine (grey line): +25,71% (+19.03%)
  1. Although all bots have been able to add value, the differences are remarkable. Just like in my last blog where I compared the performance of my portfolio of crypto trading bots to a holding portfolio of crypto currency coins, I want to use the Sharpe ratio to help understand the return of the investments compared to their risk. To briefly summarize the usefulness of the ratio:
    • The Sharpe ratio adjusts a portfolio’s past performance for the excess risk that was taken by the investor.
    • A high Sharpe ratio is good when compared to similar portfolios or funds with lower returns.

Comparing the Sharpe ratio’s of Bitcoin and the BTC trading Bots provides a fairer picture of the performance. The results are represented in the following chart.

Sharpe ratio Bitcoin and BTC Bots

A higher Sharpe metric is always better than a lower one because a higher ratio indicates that the portfolio is making better investment decisions and not being swayed by the risk associated with it. Sharpe ratio grading thresholds are commonly interpreted in the following way:

    • <1: Not Good
    • 1 – 1.99: Ok
    • 2 – 2.99: Really Good
    • >3: Exceptional

With Sharpe ratio scores ranging from 2,96 to 4,46 the Bitcoin trading bots have shown very good to exceptional results. Bitcoin however, with a Sharpe ratio of 10, is in a league of its own.

Finally the chart for Ethereum and the ETH trading bots.

Performance of Ethereum and ETH Bots

Ethereum is showing very strong growth in value over the past two weeks. The ETH trading bots show a varied picture. In percentages (2 weeks ago):

    1. Ethereum (grey line): +96,88% (+58,45%)
    2. Refreshing Grey Mia by botcreator Agga Technologies (blue line): +22,70% (-1,22%)
    3. Dr. Spock by botcreator Rave before the machine (orange line): -12,81% (-12,05%)

Refreshing Grey Mia has performed very well and turned its loss into a good profit. Dr. Spock has fallen further and is waiting for an update by the botcreator.

As noted in previous blogs, the crypto trading bots are looking for an outperformance by holding on to accumulated profits in a declining market. So far they have had no chance to do so. I will continue to compare the results of the crypto trading bots to the performance of their coins to see if outperformance is possible in the longer run.

4 Months of Crypto Trading Bots performance compared to holding Top 20 crypto coins

A month ago I posted a 3 month comparison between my crypto trading bots portfolio and a portfolio in which I’m holding 20 different crypto currency  coins. The goal is to see if the trading bots can outperform the crypto currency market.

3 Months of Bots performance compared to a Top 20 coins HODL

Now, with a month of extra data, the picture should become clearer. Are the crypto trading bots able to generate a higher revenue than the crypto currency market? Firstly let’s have a look at where we left of last month.

Bots vs Top20Coins HODL
3 month performance of crypto trading bots (blue line) and holding rhe Top 20 crypto coins (orange line)

Due to a booming November month the Top 20 crypto currency coins portfolio (orange line in the chart) turned an average loss into a 12,65% average profit (Nov. 23rd), and closed in on the result of the portfolio of crypto trading bots (blue line) of 14,76%.

What happened in the period of Nov. 24th until Christmas? The results are in the chart below.

4 month performance of crypto trading bots (blue line) and holding rhe Top 20 crypto coins (orange line)

As you can see the last month has been a period of great volatility. The results over the past 4 months are as follows (3 month results):

  • Portfolio of crypto trading bots: +16,34% (14,76%)
  • Portfolio of Top 20 crypto currency coins: +7,33% (12,65%)

The crypto trading bots have been able to gain while the average value of the crypto currency coins lost more than 5% in value. The outperformance of the trading bots is 9% over the 4 month period.

A good way to be able to compare both portfolios even better is to use the Sharpe ratio. The Sharpe ratio was developed by Nobel laureate William F. Sharpe and is used to help investors understand the return of an investment compared to its risk. Risk in this case is equal to volatility. A portfolio with a high degree of volatility is riskier than a portfolio with lower volatility. High volatility brings with it chances of higher profit but also chances of higher loss.

  • The Sharpe ratio adjusts a portfolio’s past performance for the excess risk that was taken by the investor.
  • A high Sharpe ratio is good when compared to similar portfolios or funds with lower returns.

In the chart below we see the Sharpe ratio of the crypto trading bots portfolio represented by the blue line and the portfolio of 20 crypto currency coins represented by the orange line.

Sharpe ratio of the portfolio of crypto trading bots (blue line) and the portfolio of 20 crypto currency coins (orange line)

The conclusion that can be drawn from the higher Sharpe ratio of the crypto trading bots portfolio is that their risk-adjusted return is also better than when simply holding 20 crypto currency coins during the last 4 months.

Next month in a new update we will see if the trading bots can build on their outperformance or if there is another boom in the crypto currency market which makes a simple coins hold more favorable. If you have any questions or suggestions don’t hesitate to comment.
