Compiling instructions

Download and install Go from Go Downloads for your platform.


We use the dep tool provided by Golang for managing dependencies. As it is not officially part of the go tools package suite, you will need to manually install it if you have not already.

On MacOS you can install or upgrade to the latest released version with Homebrew:

brew install dep
brew upgrade dep

On linux or MacOS, you can also install it via go get:

go get -u github.com/golang/dep/cmd/dep

After dep is installed, please follow the instructions below:

go get github.com/thrasher-/gocryptotrader
cd $GOPATH/src/github.com/thrasher-/gocryptotrader
make get
make install
cp $GOPATH/src/github.com/thrasher-/gocryptotrader/config_example.json $GOPATH/bin/config.json


go get github.com/thrasher-/gocryptotrader
cd %GOPATH%\src\github.com\thrasher-\gocryptotrader
go install
copy %GOPATH%\src\github.com\thrasher-\gocryptotrader\config_example.json %GOPATH%\bin\config.json
  • Make any neccessary changes to the config.json file.
  • Run the gocryptotrader binary file inside your GOPATH bin folder.


If this framework helped you in any way, or you would like to support the developers working on it, please donate Bitcoin to:



Binaries will be published once the codebase reaches a stable condition.
