Algorithm Intelligence (A.I.)

One of the most exciting developments in automated trading is our unique A.I., available exclusively on Cryptohopper.

A.I. stands for Algorithmic Intelligence. No, it’s not Artificial Intelligence - well, not yet. Who knows where the future will take us?

To understand how our A.I works, simply compare it to an automatic backtester. You “feed” your A.I with all the possible strategies; it will analyze them all for you and choose the one that is most successful in the current market. You will not come closer to a set-and-forget then this.

Two things are crucial to creating a good A.I:

  1. Have several accurate market trend analysis strategies that help your A.I. analyze the trend of a market. Build them yourself or download them from the marketplace.
  2. Feed it with many strategies for buy/sell signals, signals from signalers, or TradingView Alerts.

Your A.I. will rate both the market trend and signal strategies with an accuracy score. You can determine in your config how high the score must be on a signal before your Hopper may follow it. Your Hopper will automatically follow signals coming from the strategy with the highest accuracy!

Setting up your first A.I.#

Before we go into detail, if you want an in-depth explanation about our A.I., visit the documentation chapter dedicated to A.I.

First, go to strategies and click “New A.I.”. This already feels exciting, doesn’t it?

Before we continue, it’s good to mention that we’ve created a checklist for you to follow. This makes the process even easier!

Name your A.I. and save for the first time. Try to save often when creating your A.I. This updates the checklist and ensures that you don’t lose your progress.

Add trend strategies that help your A.I. analyze the market trend. This is important for your A.I. to know if there’s an uptrend, downtrend or if the market is going sideways. If you don’t have any strategies, create them in the Strategy Designer or download them from the marketplace. Try the free ones first! Click save when you’re done.

Add signals strategies that search for buying and selling opportunities. This is ultimately why we want to set up an A.I. in the first place! Click save.

Configure the A.I. as a strategy in one or more hoppers, so that your Hopper can search for buying/selling opportunities. You do this in your baseconfig -> Strategy -> Select your A.I. strategy.

Configure your AI. Go to your A.I., click “Config” and alter the settings. The settings are simple. Your Bot will give a score between -1 and 1 to each buy or sell signal, and the higher or lower this score, the stronger the buy/sell signal is.

Check if the A.I. is scanning the markets. Go to “Training”, select the right exchange, pair you want to analyze, and click “learn”. Your A.I. will start learning!

Last but not least, repeat this process and train your A.I. for all markets you have selected in your config at “Coins & Amounts”. These are the markets that your A.I. will train itself on, and your Hopper will buy currencies for markets that your A.I. is trained in.

Well done, you’ve created your first A.I. The more strategies you will feed to your A.I., the more it will learn!
