CoinDCA Trader is a trading platform that makes it possible for you to set up your own recurring buys based on Dollar-cost-average method.

A Story - Background

When it comes to finding a way to invest in bitcoin slowly over time by scheduling buys on a regular basis ie. daily, weekly or monthly, you may come across Coinbase’s feature called Recurring Buys.

It might be a good way for some people or cryptocurrency beginners to use Coinbase’s Recurring Buy feature to invest in coins over time steadily. However, the recurring transaction is executed within Coinbase, which is known to charge high fees for buy orders.

On the other hand, GDAX, Coinbase’s full-fledged exchange platform, provies a better fee structure - ie. no fee for a limit order and a small fee(about 0.25% for BTC/USD) for a market order.

Please refer to my other post below if you are curious about the difference between Coinbase and GDAX. Coinbase vs GDAX in Buy Orders

Interestingly, what’s lacking in GDAX is the recurring capability that is available in Coinbase. It looks evident that one platform has a shortcoming over the other - ie. a high fee structure in Coinbase vs no support of recurring transaction in GDAX.

Although the two platforms are connected to each other and owned by the same company, it looks like there’s no way to combine an advantage over the other - Coinbase’s recurring buy feature with GDAX’s fee schedule.

This is the area where my product CoinDCA Trader comes in and hopes to satisfy the needs.

Please stay tuned for the release of this product!

Please leave a comment if you have recommendations or features you’d like me to include in the product. I can definitely look into the requests and may schedule to include them if possible in the next development pipeline.
