This project is not maintained anymore.

After many years of working on Gekko, I’ve decided to stop my involvement in maintaining this project. You can read more about this decision on medium.

I’m now putting all my focus on my new prop trading firm Folkvang. You can find an article about that here on Coindesk.

If you’re interested in following this new journey, feel free to add me on Twitter.

Best of luck to everyone in their trading. So long, and thanks for all the fish!

Turn off the paperTrader (there can only be 1 trade plugin active per instance).

Once done, run Gekko like so:
