What is Fundingrate.io?

Hello dev.to,

Lets Get Started!

I have been recently trading cryptocurrencies a lot this year using Tradingview.com and wanted to start automating some of my most profitable strategies. After a bit of research, I found that Tradingview did not have support for programmatically processing indicator alerts. The only solutions they had at the time were email scraping or sms processing.

So, if thats that case why are we here?

Recently, Tradingview released a update implementing webhook callbacks for indicator alerts. This changed everything! Webhooks are very reliable ways to quickly get event message data sent to a client. 😄 However, this created a new challenge, I needed a way to capture the events using a public facing url.

Tradingview-Webhooks

A simple service converting tradingview webhooks into exchange orders. Once running, the end user is able to submit commands via http. This tool was made so I could concurrently test multiple alert/signal stratagies using live market data. We now offer a hosted version at Fundingrate.io.

Software Dependancies

Below are the required software dependancies.

.env

The .env contains all the app's configuration details.

  name=api
  port=9001
  # database
  rethink.db=tradingview
  rethink.host=localhost
  # rethink.port=32769
  # rethink.user=
  # rethink.password=
  # bitmex api key
  bitmex.key=
  bitmex.secret=
  # bybit api key
  bybit.key=
  bybit.secret=

Install & Run

Install the dependancies and startup the app.

npm install
npm run api

TradingView Event Format

Below is the format the bot expects.

  • type - The event position type.
  • provider - Defined name for the event.
  • timeframe - Timeframe the event is listening to.
{
  "token": "4432424-d9b3-433d-9388-19650eb7bf2a",
  "type": "LONG",
  "condition": "Whale"

api.fundingrate.io is a tool I created to solve the aforementioned problem of not having a way to capture Tradingview events reliably. Due to the recent release of the webhook feature, no other libraries existed and supported this method of event capture. The tradingview-listener has a format defined to make it simple and easy to collect any arbitrary data you want. It also processes all events using the NodeJS streaming API. This makes reprocessing of events fast, reliable and consistent. It is this flexibility that allows Fundingrate.io to provide realtime analytical data for each user concurrently.
