Bot to automatically liquidate undercollateralized and expired dYdX accounts.
Requires a running docker engine.
docker run \ -e WALLET_ADDRESS=0x2c7536E3605D9C16a7a3D7b1898e529396a65c23 \ -e WALLET_PRIVATE_KEY=0x4c0883a69102937d6231471b5dbb6204fe5129617082792ae468d01a3f362318 \ -e ETHEREUM_NODE_URL=https://eth-mainnet.alchemyapi.io/v2/YOUR_ALCHEMY_KEY \ -e SOLO_LIQUIDATIONS_ENABLED=true \ -e SOLO_EXPIRATIONS_ENABLED=false \ dydxprotocol/liquidator
This service will automatically liquidate undercollateralized and/or expired accounts on dYdX.
This bot works for Solo (Margin-Trading) accounts. Use the envvars
SOLO_EXPIRATIONS_ENABLED to control what kind of liquidations to perform.
Liquidations on dYdX happen internally between Accounts, so you will need an already-funded dYdX Account to use this liquidator bot. If you use the default of
SOLO_ACCOUNT_NUMBER=0, you can fund your dYdX Margin (Solo) Account on margin.dydx.exchange.
Successfully liquidating Accounts will modify your dYdX Account balances. You can liquidate assets you do not have in your Account provided you have another asset as collateral, which will just cause your dYdX Account Balance to go negative in that asset.
Liquidations on Solo reward a 5% spread on top of the current oracle prices for the assets being liquidated and used as collateral. Example:
+2 ETH -350 DAI
+100 ETH -1000 DAI
ETH Oracle Price: $200 DAI Oracle Price: $1
Fully liquidating this account would cause 350 DAI to be paid to zero out its balance, and would reward
350 DAI * ($1/DAI / $200/ETH) * 1.05 = 1.8375 ETH as payout. After the liquidation the account balances would be:
+0.1625 ETH 0 DAI
+101.8375 ETH -1350 DAI
|WALLET_ADDRESS||REQUIRED Ethereum address of the dYdX account owner that will do the liquidations|
|WALLET_PRIVATE_KEY||REQUIRED Ethereum private key the dYdX account owner that will do the liquidations. Make sure that "0x" is at the start of it (MetaMask exports private keys without it).|
|NETWORK_ID||Ethereum Network ID|
|ETHEREUM_NODE_URL||REQUIRED The URL of the Ethereum node to use (e.g. an Alchemy or Infura endpoint)|
|LIQUIDATION_KEY_EXPIRATION_SEC||Amount of time in seconds to wait before trying to liquidate the same account again|
|GAS_STATION_URL||URL of the gas station API to use|
|GAS_PRICE_MULTIPLIER||How much to multiply the
|GAS_PRICE_UPDATE_FREQUENCY_SEC||How frequently to update the gas price|
|SOLO_LIQUIDATIONS_ENABLED||true or false - whether to liquidate solo accounts (true by default)|

|SOLO_COLLATERAL_PREFERENCES||List of preferences for which collateral markets to receive first when liquidating|
|SOLO_OWED_PREFERENCES||List of preferences for which markets to liquidate first on an account when liquidating|
|SOLO_ACCOUNT_NUMBER||The dYdX account number to use for the liquidating account. If you're not sure what this is, use 0. This will show up on trade.dydx.exchange/account if you connect with the same wallet.|

|SOLO_MIN_OVERHEAD_VALUE||If you can liquidate less than this amount of value before hitting
|SOLO_EXPIRED_ACCOUNT_DELAY_SECONDS||How long to wait before liquidating expired accounts. The spread for liquidating expired accounts ramps up linearly from 0% to 5% over 1 hour.|
