What is z-score | Cryptocurrency statistical arbitrage
My platform checks the most popular crypto exchanges every 60 seconds to see if prices start spreading between exchanges. Unlike your average arbitrage software… we use no bots and strictly deal in cross-exchange arbitrage. The on-exchange arbitrage market is over-saturated and controlled by bots. There are a few that do this but our system detects them much faster due to how we use monitor Bid/Ask prices.
## 📈 How our arbitrage software works?
We have a [platform that displays arbitrage opportunities](https://arbiswap.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/screenshot-arbiswap.com-2018.09.20-12-51-18.png) but we also have an [alert system that notifies users of arbitrage opps and price pumps](https://arbiswap.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/111.png) as they occur. The alert system is the key feature because it provides the best opportunity for you to make money arbitraging by detecting price spreads and breakouts as they occur. It’s also designed for more aggressive traders looking to make anywhere from 5% to 150% in a single trade which we know is possible when breakouts occur. In a lot of cases it is not even necessary to transfer to the other exchange for you to make a nice profit because arbitrage opps in themselves detect breakouts. Therefore the key is catching them via alerts.
## 🤔 What can you do with our platform:
✔️ monitor 800+ coins for price spreads between the most popular cryptocurrency exchanges
✔️ get alerted to arbitrage opps and breakouts as they occur (we designed our system to detect much faster by using a unique formula)
✔️ we check to see if wallets are reported to be under maintenance (not perfect but can detect what’s been reported)
✔️ users can customize alerts by exchanges as well as % of arbitrage opportunity.
✔️ view and analyze [historical arbitrage charts for Bitcoin and altcoins](https://cdn-images-1.medium.com/max/800/1*X5M9O1Z7xe2o_PqGoaQh0w.png)
The software is very simple to use and requires no training, no downloads and so far I have gotten good feedback… every now and then someone needs support and I usually ask them [how it’s working for them](https://arbiswap.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/happy.png).
## 🐋 Now I will address the misconception that one whale can eat up all the volume for himself using an arbitrage opportunity that happened a few months ago
I have personally successfully traded thousands with my own tool but I was also actively researching a few arbitrage opportunities just to understand arbitrage opportunities a bit better so I happen to be online as I received an alert at 6.888% for **ADX BTC** which was pumped up over 65%. It was trading for **$1.19** on Bittrex and **$1.47** on Binance which is around a 25% or more price spread between the exchanges. The **24 hour volume** on **ADX BTC** on Binance alone was over [**$51 million dollars** most of which was traded during the arbitrage opportunity](https://cdn-images-1.medium.com/max/1200/1*4_M7O1xV8ItuSFipsmeD4g.png). That is a ton of volume for literally thousands of people to make a profit from by swapping these coins between exchanges. I usually trade around 20k to 40k at a time which is plenty enough for me during these occurrences and I have no trouble getting my orders filled in minutes while transferring and selling on the other exchange. So do not buy into the idea that it one whale can eat up all the volume… They are usually the ones creating the volume to push it up if anything they help.
While it is still competition to get your orders filled faster and moved faster, there is still plenty of room for many to profit from this strategy. It is the on-exchange arbitrage market that is over-saturated.

## For few days I am offering a 2 week Free Trial – because this is a tool it is eligible for a tax write-off for most countries under certain circumstances
For anyone interested in trying … http://arbiswap.com. 2 weeks is plenty of time to analyze and see how the alerts can work for you. Use it to detect price pumps early and also for arbitrage if you catch a really good spread between exchanges. Also make sure to customize alerts based on the exchanges you trade so you dont get alerted to opps on exchanges you dont trade on.
**Closing:** I know I’m just a guy on the internet but I would not offer anything I didn’t believe in or use myself. Good spirit guy here. This is best used as casual trading tool meaning do not think you have to trade every alert. I suggest watching the first few. Usually if they are above 8% they have potential to breakout into double or triple digit gains. Pay attention to volume.
