Acronyms

When people talk about Gunbot, they use a lot of Acronyms and other strange terms because it's easier than repeating the full parameter names over and over again.

These are some of the common ones.

  • MVTS - Refers to the parameter MIN_VOLUME_TO_SELL

  • MVTB - Refers to the parameter MIN_VOLUME_TO_BUY

  • TL - Refers to the parameter TRADING_LIMIT

  • ITB - Refers to the parameter IGNORE_TRADES_BEFORE

  • JSON - JavaScript Object Notation which is the format in which gunbots config, and other core files are in. If someone is asking "to see your jsons", they are more than likely referring to the file which should be named exchange-BASE_QUOTE-state.json, located in your gunbot executable location, after the pair has been cycled at least once.
