What are Trading Bots?

Trading Bots allow Crypto.com Exchange users to profit or build their positions by automatically placing orders based on pre-set parameters. By setting up a Trading Bot, users do not have to constantly monitor market activity. The Crypto.com Exchange now offers the Dollar-Cost Averaging (DCA) and Grid Trading Bots.

What are Dollar-Cost-Averaging (DCA) Bots?

Dollar-Cost-Averaging (DCA) Bots are automated trading Bots that allow users to automatically buy and/or sell crypto at regular intervals over a preset time frame. DCA trading is used by investors who would like to reduce the influence of volatility and accumulate/decumulate positions gradually. This allows users to average the price of their tokens by buying a set amount over a certain period of time.
