Gate.io Trading bots
Copy Trading - Gate.io trading bots overview
Gate.io offers its traders the option to use a number of different types of trading bots. You can find Gate.io trading bots under Copy Trading menu item.
The best part about gate.io trading bots is that you have two main options for using a trading bot:
- You can copy someone else's trading bot. You can see how well it has performed over time. If you use copy trading option, you pay 5-30% of your final profits to the bot creator.
- You can create your own trading bot. And whenever someone copies your trading bot, you can get 5-30% of their profits. You can choose the percentage you ask yourself when creating the bot. But keep in mind that there are thousands of bots running, so in order for someone to copy your bot it really needs to show good results.
Are gate.io trading bots safe?
Trading cryptos is very risky and the same applies also to trading bots, as they execute trades based on a set of rules.
Which is the safest type of trading bot in gate.io?
In our opinion the safest trading bots in gate.io are Smart Rebalance bots - they base the trading decisions on simply the proportionality of the cryptos in your portfolio.
For example, if you set the bot rule to always keep the balance of two cryptos at 50%, then when the price of one crypto rises and the proportion of one crypto is now more than 50%, it sells part of that crypto holdings to buy more of the other crypto to keep the balance still at 50%.
Smart rebalance bots are known to produce better results in long run than simply HODLing, but obviously it also depends on the cryptos you have in your portfolio.
If one crypto goes up by 50% over time and the other crypto goes down by 90%, you're still losing money.
But you're losing on average less than you would have with no rebalancing.
