Mandatory Parameters


Whether you choose the Preinstalled VPS service or install ProfitTrailer entirely on your own, there are several key parameters that must be configure before you can run the bot.

  • Navigate to the folder where your profit trailer files are stored.
  • Open up the application.properties file in a text editor. For Windows users download and use Notepad++ (NOT Word, wordpad, notepad etc - these will insert incorrect characters in your file), for Mac users the Brackets application is recommended. (You can download it here: Brackets). Linux users - any appropriate text editor.
  • Configure these parameters (read about these settings here: application.properties):
trading.exchange = THE EXHANGE YOU ARE USING e.g. BITTREX
default_apiKey = THE FIRST API KEY YOU CREATED
default_apiSecret = THE FIRST SECRET KEY YOU CREATED
trading_apiKey = THE SECOND API KEY YOU CREATED
trading_apiSecret = THE SECOND SECRET KEY YOU CREATED
  • Now open your pairs.properties file in your text editor
  • Update this setting to true:
ALL_trading_enabled = true
  • WARNING ONCE YOU START THE BOT IN THE NEXT STEP, THE BOT WILL START TRADING AND MAY SELL ANY EXISTING COINS THAT YOU ARE HOLDING IN THE ACCOUNT!!
  • To prevent these from being sold, either move them to a wallet out of the account, place an extremely high sell order on them to make the bot ignore them, or individually disable them from being traded using these settings.
  • Save the file. Now you are ready to go with the default bot trading settings. You have done the bare minimum configuration at this point. We recommend you go through all the setup files and configure to your liking.

Note: We recommend you turn on test mode (set it to “true”) when running the bot for the first time to check for compatibility issues. This setting is in your configuration.properties file:

testMode = true
