Kelp (trading bot)

Open-source trading and market-making bot for cryptocurrencies with preset strategies and custom strategy development framework

Kelp is an open-source trading bot that was originally designed for the Stellar Decentralized Exchange. It includes support for trading cryptocurrencies and stablecoins on centralized exchanges.



Kelp includes several configurable trading strategies and exchange integrations. The user can define their parameters or use the sample configurations included with the project to get up and running with a trading bot. The modular design allows users to create new trading strategies, exchange integrations, and assets.



Kelp is built to:

  • Make markets
  • Create liquidity and facilitate price-discovery for ICO tokens
  • Price and trade custom stablecoins
  • Mimic orderbooks from other exchanges
