Next Steps

Next Steps

There are several ways to improve on what we've built:

Smaller Intervals

The public APIs we use allow three queries per minute. In order to truly be able to use our algorithms, the interval range would need to be in the miliseconds, so our ranges would need to be much smaller. To get this information, we'd need to work on a paid tier API.


We can improve our weights by implementing machine learning models that predict flash events and price movements. In this project, we limited our scope to identifying initial signals and showing a proof of concept. Now that we're able to predict a price, the next step would be to add a feedback loop so that our model would improve over time.

Additional Signals

In order to deliver a working product, we needed to limit project scope. However there is a short-list of additional signals that could improve our model:

  • Other exchanges besides coinbase: GDAX (Coinbase Pro), Gemini, Kraken
  • Other currencies: BTC-EUR, BTC-Yen, BTC-KRW. These also allow new exchanges.
  • Other cryptocurrencies: Ethereum, Litecoin
  • Other social signals: Twitter and additional Google Trends queries.
