Nefertiti is a command-line trading bot that follows a simple but proven strategy. If you don’t know what Nefertiti is or does, please refer to Introducing Nefertiti™, a simple crypto trading bot.

Disclaimer: investing in crypto is high risk. Even though this bot follows a relatively safe strategy, you should never feed it money you cannot afford to lose. Use at your own risk.


I have bought a brand new raspberry, what now?

You would need a microSD card to install the operative system in it. You have a lot of options. The standard one is Raspbian but I recommend you DietPi, a Debian-based operating like Raspbian, but slimmer and faster. Here you have some instructions to install it.


Installing Nefertiti™

Once you have your Raspberry Pi ready to play with you can download the latest Nefertiti binary for your platform. In your case, despite of having a “Debian ARM”, I recommend you download the “Linux ARM” version. This will download a .tar.gz file with the runable cryptotrader inside. All you need to do is copy the file cryptotrader in the root of the Raspberry Pi using scp command.


Example of using Nefertiti™

Here, you can see a script to run cryptotrader much simpler:


Installing PM2

I personally like running the bot with PM2. It allows you to run multiple instances. Here is an example of running 4 instances in PM2 and show the dashboard to see them all running:


Troubleshoot

  • How to know the IP address to run scp command:
    Once run the raspberry, it appears on the top: IP eth0 or IP wlan0 followed by the IP (something like 196.168.X.X). To run scp just copy that IP and run scp ./cryptotrader root@192.168.X.X:~/
    It will ask for the password and, if you did not change it, by default isdietpi
