What is Bitfinex Honey
Based on the foundational work of the Honey Framework project initiated back in 2018, Bitfinex Honey is an open-source toolkit designed for traders that enhances the functionalities of the main Bitfinex platform in a customisable way. With Bitfinex Honey, you will be able to run multiple algorithmic trading strategies, design custom orders, trigger notifications and much more, using a friendly interface.
The toolkit is composed of a set of standalone versions and a web application. The standalone versions are downloadable applications for macOS, Windows and Linux operating systems that allow you to operate from the safety of your local environment by leveraging the power of the Bitfinex API. The web application, on the other hand, allows you to run a limited set of functionalities directly from your browser - no installation required.
Important: The web-based version of Bitfinex Honey is, for the time being, not being maintained. We are currently focusing on improving the experience in the standalone version.
How to set up Bitfinex Honey
1. First, log in / sign up to your Bitfinex account and configure an API key.
2. Then, just head to the Bitfinex Honey homepage and follow the links to easily download the latest stable version of the application for your operating system.
Important: Because of the current leap in functionalities, we are now in Beta mode - you can read more about it here. Because we are committed to open-source, those familiar with GitHub can stay up-to-date with the project here.
Paper Trading using Bitfinex Honey
If you would like to test Bitfinex Honey in a simulated environment without putting real funds at risk, you can easily use a Paper Trading account.
Once you have the API keys of that account, you can use them on the Paper Trading Terminal of the Sandbox environment.
