The profitability of trading bots depends on various factors, and it's essential to consider these factors to maximise success. In this guide, we'll explore key considerations to optimise the performance of your trading bot.

Time commitment

Time is a crucial factor in determining profitability. Some trading bot types require intensive monitoring and adjustments, while others operate autonomously.

  • Cryptohopper offers various bot types catering to different preferences:

Trading costs

Automated trading incurs costs that can impact profitability. Trading fees charged by cryptocurrency exchanges diminish profits.

  • Cryptohopper displays profits and losses exclusive of transaction costs due to varying fee percentages among users.

  • Monthly subscription fees are another consideration, as they add to the operational expenses.

Trading strategy or trading signals

Use trading strategies or trading signals to get started.

  • Backtest trading strategies to mitigate losses and optimize profitability.

  • Use trading signals, ensuring they're compatible with your crypto exchange and selected currencies.

Community Support

Tap into the knowledge of other traders within the Cryptohopper community on Discord for valuable insights and advice.

While Cryptohopper employees cannot offer specific trading advice, they can assist in identifying unusual settings.


Leverage the troubleshooting feature to diagnose why your trading bot isn't trading, particularly useful for beginners.

Paper Trading

Before committing real funds, test trading bot settings using paper trading to prevent losses.

Risk Management

Consider using Triggers to manage risk effectively. Triggers respond to market events and can deactivate your trading bot, load a different trading bot template, disable buying, activate panic mode, and more.

By carefully considering these factors, you can optimize the profitability of your trading bot on Cryptohopper. Remember to continuously monitor and adjust your approach to adapt to changing market conditions.
