Bitfinex Honey 3.29

Bitfinex Honey allows algorithmic trading to be more accessible for everyone from anywhere. With Bitfinex Honey, users can improve their trading strategies by simply installing the downloadable version. 

Bitfinex Honey has proven to be a highly systematic open-source toolkit thought out to the smallest detail. With the built-in code, traders could run algorithmic strategies directly from their devices and implement new orders to customise their trading experience. But, as a technology, Bitfinex Honey has all the potential to develop in an even more professionalised and efficient way. So, we’re pleased to share the latest updates to the Bitfinex Honey.
