Note: I'm not really maintaining this anymore, see Optonic's fork for something more up-to-date.

Features

  • Buy and sell bitcoins
  • Specify buy/sell amounts in BTC or USD
  • List and cancel orders
  • Withdraw bitcoins
  • Interactive authentication with no-echo password prompt — no need to store your credentials on disk
  • Display account balance
  • Display ticker
  • Calculate profitable short/long prices from an initial price
  • Tab completion of commands
  • Sequence multiple commands using semicolons
  • Abort commands with SIGINT (ctrl-c on *nix) without exiting, if Mt. Gox is being slow
  • Insert comments (# blah) e.g. for quick notes
