Exchange Monitor


This project was made to actively notify when a trade is executed on a
crypto-exchange. Also this will save balance snapshots if a database is
connected. This is a very modular project so depending on the
environment settings set the program will preform different operations.
Hybrid configurations are supported as well.

Exchanges Supported

  • Poloniex
  • BitFinex

Additional Exchanges can be added at request
