We have created this guide to help users of the new
celo-arb strategy install and run the strategy on a cloud instance.
This configuration installs the Docker build of Hummingbot on AWS. Note that you can use other cloud providers besides AWS, and you can also install Hummingbot by source or binary in addition to Docker.
We assume that you already have an AWS account.
Follow the instructions at AWS Quick Start Guide: Launch a Linux Virtual Machine to launch an AWS instance. However, please make the following modifications to run
While the free
t2.micro tier may be sufficient to run
celo-arb, we recommend a
t2.medium instance as the minimum instance type for improved performance.
By default, AWS instances come with 8 GB of storage. We recommend that you increase storage to at least 16 GB to install the Docker version along with the Celo node.
# 1) Download Docker install script wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/CoinAlpha/hummingbot/development/installation/install-docker/install-docker-ubuntu.sh # 2) Enable script permissions chmod a+x install-docker-ubuntu.sh # 3) Run installation ./install-docker-ubuntu.sh
# 1) Update Ubuntu's database of software sudo apt-get update # 2) Install tmux sudo apt-get install -y tmux # 3) Install Docker sudo apt install -y docker.io # 4) Start and Automate Docker sudo systemctl start docker && sudo systemctl enable docker # 5) Change permissions for docker (optional) # Allow docker commands without requiring sudo prefix sudo usermod -a -G docker $USER # 6) Close terminal exit
You may need to exit and reconnect to your AWS instance afterwards.
Follow the Celo documentation to pull the Celo Docker image and install/configure a node, but stop right after the step Configure the node and before the step Start the node:
Instead, run the following command to start an ultra-light node rather than a full node:
docker run --name celo-ultralight-node -d --restart unless-stopped -p 127.0.0.1:8545:8545 -v $PWD:/root/.celo $CELO_IMAGE --verbosity 3 --networkid $NETWORK_ID --syncmode lightest --rpc --rpcaddr 0.0.0.0 --rpcapi eth,net,web3,debug,admin,personal --etherbase $CELO_ACCOUNT_ADDRESS --bootnodes $BOOTNODE_ENODES --allow-insecure-unlock
Make sure that you save the address and password of the new Celo account address you created. You will need it later.
Install the Docker version of Hummingbot:
# 1) Download Hummingbot install, start, and update script cd ~ wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/CoinAlpha/hummingbot/development/installation/docker-commands/create.sh wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/CoinAlpha/hummingbot/development/installation/docker-commands/start.sh wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/CoinAlpha/hummingbot/development/installation/docker-commands/update.sh # 2) Enable script permissions chmod a+x *.sh # 3) Create a hummingbot instance ./create.sh
# 1) Create folder for your new instance cd ~ mkdir hummingbot_files # 2) Create folders for logs, config files and database file mkdir hummingbot_files/hummingbot_conf mkdir hummingbot_files/hummingbot_logs mkdir hummingbot_files/hummingbot_data # 3) Launch a new instance of hummingbot docker run -it \ --network host \ --name hummingbot-instance \ --mount "type=bind,source=$(pwd)/hummingbot_files/hummingbot_conf,destination=/conf/" \ --mount "type=bind,source=$(pwd)/hummingbot_files/hummingbot_logs,destination=/logs/" \ --mount "type=bind,source=$(pwd)/hummingbot_files/hummingbot_data,destination=/data/" \ coinalpha/hummingbot:latest
Afterwards, Hummingbot will start automatically and prompt you to set a password. After you exit, you can use the
./update.sh commands to run and update Hummingbot, respectively.
Run the command
Enter the Celo address and password from when you created the Celo account in Step 3.
You should now be connected to Celo. To check, run the
balance command and check that the balances of CELo and cUSD match what you hold in your Celo wallet.
