Haasbot 2.3 Beta Build 7 is now available!

We are proud to announce that the next beta build of Haasbot 2.3, which is beta build 7, has been released. This build addresses numerous bugs and improved stability. Haasbot should no longer crash and most users will experience an increase in performance and stability. Beta build 7 brings us closer to a Haasbot 2.3 release build. Additionally, we are proud to announce that beta build 7 has BitMEX support!

To trade on BitMEX with Haasbot 2.3 beta build 7, you need to input your username/password into haasbot. We are still waiting for BitMEX to make a user friendly interface to generate API keys, but unfortunately that is not there at the moment. Official BitMEX support will not happen until they add this, as it is a security precaution, as we do not want to have to require users to input this information in order to automate trades. If you do not feel comfortable saving your BitMEX login information into Haasbot, you are free to wait until BitMEX adds the API key interface before checking it out, but keep in mind that all API keys that are added to Haasbot are encrypted on the machine running haasbot.

Note: You need to have an active Haasbot license to participate in beta testing.

Haasbot 2.3 Beta Build 7 OS specific builds:
Windows
OSX
Linux

Changes
– BitMEX is now supported
– Fixes done to the price receiving engine
– Minor fixes done to the history read engine
– Sandbox futures trading fixed
– Poloniex wallet read fixed
– New Altcoins are added
– Performance improvements added to wallet reading
– Several smaller kernel improvements
– Several interface improvements and fixes

Known remaining issues:
– OKCoin futures shows leverage x20 on LTC, while x20 is not supported.
– BitMEX margin is not displayed properly
– Bitfinex Margin is not functional
– Settlement dates are not all shown properly

Note: BitMEX is working, but the volume is lower than other futures platforms. Its to be expected that the orders will hit 10 minute timeout threshold.

Be sure to post any issues or if you are having any issues in the operating system specific beta bug threads. You can also contact us if you have any questions or need any assistance setting anything up!

Haasbot 2.2.1 Beta Build 1 Has Been Released!

~ All,

We would like to take a moment to thank our community and user base in being patient with us while we made numerous changes to haasbot 2.2. We have been working very hard on stabilizing our whiteservers to handle the load of our users and we are happy to announce that they should be extremely stable. In addition, this build has the numerous fixes which were needed for the Script Bots.

You can download and install the beta here: https://forum.haasonline.com/viewtopic.php?f=27&t=728

The only thing that we were unable to fix within a short period of time is BTCChina support, which we have suspended for the time being. We will work to correct this and re-integrate BTCChina support into Haasbot as soon as we can, but for now, please use either Huobi or OKCoin.com/cn for your cny trades.

Be sure to let us know if you find any bugs here: https://forum.haasonline.com/viewtopic.php?f=28&t=727

Thanks and best of luck with your trades! These are exciting times and now that the majority of the fixes have been done, we can get on with some of the more interesting features that are coming up in Haasbot 2.3!

Haasbot 2.2 OSX (mac) Beta Build 1 has been released!

We are proud to announce that our Haasbot 2.2 OSX (Mac) beta build is now available for beta testing! The OSX beta is the the same as the windows Haasbot 2.2 beta but it works natively on OSX. Users just need to install mono, but if it is not installed, the program will prompt the user to install it.

Haasbot osx bitcoin bot

This is a big milestone for us and we will be enabling notifications in OSX soon and once everything is ported over to OSX and fully working, we will switch over to getting Haasbot running on Linux. If you have a haasbot license and are interested in testing the OSX beta of haasbot 2.2, send Phillis an PM on our forums and he will add you to the OSX beta testing group. Everything works quite well on OSX and we will be optimizing it so that users don’t need to install mono, enabling notifications, and make a native OSX interface for the settings interface.

Let us know if you have any questions or need any additional information!
