Cryptocurrency Analysis


It's been a while since I last posted, because I was working hard over at Navisens.  After about 3 years, I am now back on the market looking for a new position.  In the meantime, I have started working on another project that has fascinated me for a while.

For about a year now, I have been looking into and trading cryptocurrencies.  I find the whole market exciting to follow and very lucrative (if you do it right).  This is where my new project comes in.   I am building a tool for querying historical cryptocurrency price data in order to analyze and use it for making future price predictions.  My current progress is located on my Github.

To get started, I have built a simple api that uses the phenomenal ccxt api to query from tons of exchanges to build up data. Then, once I have a significant amount of data, I will test some machine learning algorithms on that data.

Here are some questions that I am starting to think about:

- How is one cryptocurrency related to another?  Can I use the data from one crypto to train a classifier/regressor for predicting a different crypto?

- What type of Machine Learning algorithms will work best on this time-series data? Neural Networks? Recurrent Neural Networks?  Decision Trees? Bayesian Estimators?

- What features should I use as inputs to the ML algorithms?  Do I need scaling? (probably)  How many features will be sufficient?

- What should I predict? A new price (regressor)? Whether it will go up or down (classifier)?

As I start to look at these problems more carefully, I will continue to write about the conclusions that I come to.  If you have questions or thoughts, I would love to hear them! Feel free to comment on this post or send me an email!

  18. Make sure you are well aware of what you are investing in!! There are so many unregulated bitcoin brokers online these days and I almost lost all my money to Tradecoin and Bitconnect. I invested about $17000 in total with them and at first, the transactions were moving fine. Suddenly, they just got online and started telling me to pay for taxes which I did and when I tried to make withdrawal, my account was logged out. My account manager couldn't do anything to help me out.
    At this point, I got the clear message that I was scammed and I quickly reached out to Black Rock Consult Pro that some of my friends referred to me. I'm glad I got most of my money back within a few days. I don't know how they did it but it was awesome and I can only recommend them to anybody with a similar scam experience.
