Building a DCA Crypto Bot

January 9, 2020    Coinbase Pro API TypeScript

Starting a new project today. This one is to solve a need I’ve had for a while: I’d like automate a way to dollar-cost-average into Bitcoin over a long period of time. Coinbase offers recurring buys through, but charges higher transaction fees and less flexibility.

I’d like to build a front-end, logging facilities, alerts, and construct a secure API.

Learning goals for this project:

  • Secure APIs using JWT access token
  • Learn TypeScript and the Coinbase Pro SDK
  • Deploy to self-hosted server
  • Setup PKI
