BITCOIN vs USDT

WHAT IS THE BITCOIN BOT?

Trades between Bitcoin (BTC) and Tether (USDT).

The bot uses an automated trading strategy that is designed to capture BTC bull market outbreaks, follow the trend to the upside, then sit on the sidelines in USDT when price corrects, becomes uncertain or starts trending downwards. 

PERFORMANCE

The bot was birthed in November 2020.

The below data is actual performance as recorded by Wunderbit.

All trades can be viewed and verified on Wunderbit by searching for 'Bitcoin-Bot'.

PERFORMANCE HISTORY (BACKTESTING)

Backtesting was conducted using the TradingView Strategy system.


The tests covered a range of different market conditions and different time periods to get a more diverse sample set. 

 

Two scenarios were then tested; a Buy and Hold Strategy of purchasing 1 BTC and holding, versus running the Bitcoin Bot. Below are the results.

Backtesting Disclaimers:

Statistics include the fees and commissions that would have been incurred during the time range.

Statistics assume that all capital was held within the bot throughout with no capital gains tax paid. 

Costs for subscription to platforms not included. 
Backtesting software cannot account for trades that would have exited due to stop loss activation. As such, all backtesting data may differ to actual performance due to the inclusion of stop loss coding in the Bitcoin Bot strategy.
Backtesting and past performance cannot predict future performance.

Averages 15-30 trades/year on a 24/7 market

Each trade has an automatic stop loss for protection

Only longs the market (no shorts)

Simple to start up and manage

Uses Binance in conjunction with Wunderbit Platform

Copy-traders have access to their trades and holdings at all times - at no time does Blue Sky Breakout have access to, or the ability to view your capital.

IMPORTANT CONSIDERATIONS

  • Depending on where you entered the market cycle and initiated the copy-trading bot, you could start off with losses within the first few days and / or weeks. If you happen to start off at an ideal spot in the cycle then great, but to be transparent, you will encounter a period of losses at some time. It is very important to take a long term perspective and only invest an amount that you are comfortable with.

  •  

  • This is not a 'set and forget' strategy. If that appeals to you, simply buying and holding might be more suitable. Successfully following this bot requires a certain attentiveness to the Blue Sky Breakout announcements on social media. Occasionally, there will be times when copy-traders need to manually intervene with open trades. This will be announced through the Blue Sky Breakout social channels and will need to be acted on promptly to stay within the bot strategy.

    It is also important to know that depending on your country of residence, buying and selling of cryptocurrencies is likely to be subject to tax.

WHAT'S THE RISK?

  • The Bitcoin Bot can have periods of underperformance in high ranging and/or non-trending conditions. Designed for long term implementation.

  • Alerts and triggers are built on other platforms and trades rely on these to be fully functional (monitored regularly by the BSB team).

  •  

  • All funds remain on the exchange and therefore rely on the security of that exchange

  •  

  • All trades are programmed with a stop loss to prevent major losses.

COMMISSION AND OTHER COSTS

Bitcoin Bot trades through the Binance Exchange. Binance Trading Fees can be accessed here.
