Peatio - an open-source crypto currency exchange
Peatio is a free and open-source crypto currency exchange implementation with the Rails framework. This is a fork of Peatio designed for micro-services architecture. We have simplified the code in order to use only Peatio API with external frontend and server components.
To build your own exchange you should now run Peatio as a backend instead of forking the repository, and extend it using other microservices such as Barong.
Our mission is to build an open-source crypto currency exchange with a high performance trading engine and incomparable security. We are moving toward dev/ops best practices of running an enterprise grade exchange.
We provide webinar or on site training for installing, configuring and administration best practices of Peatio. Feel free to contact us for joining the next training session: Openware.com
Help is greatly appreciated, feel free to submit pull-requests or open issues.
Things You Should Know
RUNNING AN EXCHANGE IS HARD.
This repository is not a turn key solution and will require engineering and design of security process by your company, with or without our assistance. This repository is one component among many we recommend using for composing an enterprise grade exchange. It is highly recommended to deploy a UAT environment and build automated tests for your needs, including Functional tests, Smoke tests and Security vulnerability scans. You may not need to have an active developer on Peatio source code, however, we recommend the following team setup: 1 dev/ops, 3 frontend developers (react / angular), 2 QA engineers, 1 Security Officer.
SECURITY KNOWLEDGE IS A REQUIREMENT.
Peatio cannot protect your customers if you leave your admin password 1234567, or open sensitive ports to public internet. No one can. Running an exchange is a very risky task because you're dealing with money directly. If you don't know how to make your exchange secure, hire an expert.
You must know what you're doing, there's no shortcut. Please get prepared before you continue:
- Rails knowledge
- Security knowledge
- Cloud and Linux administration
- Docker and Kubernetes administration
- Micro-services and OAuth 2.0
- Designed as high performance crypto currency exchange
- Built-in high performance matching-engine
- Built-in multiple wallet support (e.g. deposit, hot, warm and cold)
- Built-in plugable coin API
- Build-in Management API - server-to-server API with high privileges
- Build-in RabbitMQ Event API
- Usability and scalability
- Websocket API and high frequency trading support
- Support multiple digital currencies (e.g. Bitcoin, Litecoin, Ethereum, Ripple etc.)
- Support ERC20 Tokens
- API endpoint for FIAT deposits or payment gateways.
- Powerful admin dashboard and management tools
- Highly configurable and extendable
- Industry standard security out of box
- Maintained by Openware.com
- KYC Verification provided by Barong
Please see CONTRIBUTING.md for details on how to contribute issues, fixes, and patches to this project.
We advice to use minimalistic environment if you want to develop only Peatio and don't touch processes which interact with other components.
Otherwise we advice to use microkube based environment
Minimalistic local development environment with docker-compose:
Local development without microkube
- Set up initial configuration
- Start peatio daemons
god -c lib/daemons/daemons.god
- Add this to your
127.0.0.1 www.app.local 127.0.0.1 peatio.app.local 127.0.0.1 barong.app.local
- Start rails server
JWT_PUBLIC_KEY=$(cat config/secrets/rsa-key.pub| base64 -w0) rails s -b 0.0.0.0(
base64 -b0for macOS)
Local development environment with microkube:
Prepare the microkube
Follow microkube README for the best Peatio installation experience.
Local development environment with workbench (DEPRECATED since 2.0):
Barong is an essential part of Rubykube Peatio. It is a KYC OAuth 2.0 provider. Barong replace the KYC, 2FA, Phone verification from legacy Peatio. Barong manage roles and kyc level across all applications from the RKCP. It's easy to extend by using the EventAPI or Rest API.
Barong key features
- KYC Verification for individuals
- SMS and Google two-factor authentication
- OAuth 2.0 provider
- Transaction Signature support
- Supply JWT tokens to frontend and mobile app
$> docker-compose run --rm barong bash -c "./bin/link_config && ./bin/setup" $> docker-compose up -d barong
This will output password for email@example.com. Default password is
Start peatio server
$> docker-compose run --rm peatio bash -c "bundle exec rake db:create db:migrate db:seed" $> docker-compose up -d peatio
After all of that you can start using Peatio in your browser just by following one of the hosts which you added earlier.
You can interact with Peatio through API:
- Account, Market & Public API v2
- Management API v2
- Websocket API
- Event API (AMQP)
We want to make it super-easy for Peatio users and contributors to talk to us and connect with each other, to share ideas, solve problems and help make Peatio awesome. Here are the main channels we're running currently, we'd love to hear from you on one of them:
This is for all Peatio users. You can find guides, recipes, questions, and answers from Snowplow users including the Peatio.tech team. We welcome questions and contributions!
Chat with us and other community members on Telegram.
If you spot a bug, then please raise an issue in our main GitHub project (rubykube/peatio); likewise, if you have developed a cool new feature or improvement in your Rubykube Peatio fork, then send us a pull request! If you want to brainstorm a potential new feature, then the Rubykube Discourse Forum (see above) is probably a better place to start.
If you want to talk directly to us (e.g. about a commercially sensitive issue), email is the easiest way.
Getting Support and Customization
If you need help with running/deploying/customizing Peatio, you can contact us on Openware.com.
