UnfairCrypto: Algorithmic crypto trading for the masses

platforms Carthage compatible

Unfair Crypto is the quickest and simplest way to get started with algorithmic trading of crypto currencies (and derivatives). It currently supports Bitmex and Binance, and over time all exchanges that provide an API will be added. Unfair Crypto requires a Mac and uses Swift, Apple's new programming language. But you don't need to know Swift to get started using the platform! Unfair Crypto is made to be extremely simple to use, even for newcomers to the language or programming in general.


Unfair Advantage is a Scandinavian software development company that specialises in very challenging projects within fields such as drone and fintech, and Unfair Crypto was built for the Skye crypto fund, a crypto arbitrage fund that until recently was only taking private investments. When they decided to take investments from the broader community through an ICO they wanted a reliable toolchain that facilitated fast iteration and minimised the time spent fixing bugs. The result is the UnfairCrypto platform, which is gradually being open-sourced. It is extremely easy to use and highly extensible, and now anyone can use it to implement their crypto trading ideas, build visualisation tools or any other crypto related Mac or iOS app they can imagine.

The first part of the platform to be released is the interface for obtaining data from and placing orders at two major exchanges, Bitmex and Binance. Over time the entire toolchain will be open-sourced.


Unfair Crypto covers the entire APIs of both exchanges, which in turn means that anything you can do in the web interfaces, you can do with Unfair Crypto -- from getting the latest quotes to placing complex interlinked orders.


Places a simple limit order for 0.1 Cardano's at a price of 23 BTC, and prints the order status

// Sets up your API key and secret
Bitmex.setup(id: "My API id", secret: "My API secret")

// Places a simple limit buy order for 8 Ether's at a price of 0.065 BTC, and prints the order status
    .create(symbol: .eth, side: .buy, quantity: 8)
    .limit(price: 0.065)
    .handleSuccess { order in print(order.ordStatus) }

// Send a chat message
    .send("Hello world")
    .handleSuccess { _ in print("Message was sent succesfully") }
