Can you tell us a bit about your professional background and how you got started in crypto trading?

Initially I worked a normal job, then I started a business and looked at investing in 2008. The opportunities in crypto were more attractive and I plunged into the crypto world. Got to know crypto when the 2021 bull hype was everywhere and joined several trading bots such as RoyalQ, AntBot, etc. Then a friend introduced me to 3Commas and continued to use 3Commas because there was no gas fee. Interested in crypto because it is a more promising investment than property, stocks, gold, etc.

I was interested in using trading bots because when trading manually there is a fear & greed effect. Started trading in 2008 in stocks, expanded to forex, and finally to crypto. I got to know trading bots in 2021, and have been using 3Commas since. Initially I began investing to fight inflation, and now I’m using trading bots for passive income and holding crypto for wealth.

What specific trading strategies have you found to be most effective when using our platform’s bots?

DCA bots long and short on spot, spread on all prices and keep borrowing between quotes and base.

How do you approach risk management in your trading, and what measures do you take to minimize potential losses?

1. Diversify exchanges to minimize risks like FTX.

2. Trade in all currency pairs to reduce the risk of delisting.

3. Keep large funds in Ledger and use small funds for trading, so that the proceeds from large funds become easy winnings.

4. Spread the price at all levels so that no matter what the market conditions are, it still generates passive income.

5. Part of the profit is withdrawn to the Ledger and part for compounding.

Can you describe your overall trading philosophy and how it guides your decision-making process?

1. Passive income for Lifetime, Ride to Zero, risk diversification, patience and discipline are key.

2. Setting a trading strategy and enjoying the ride with trading bots to avoid the influence of fear and greed in the market.

3. Discuss with trading partners and always look for better strategies to increase passive income.

How do you determine the right time to enter and exit a trade?

Always in the market, unless there are signs of an exchange bank run then the exchange is withdrawn. Because the game is passive income for life, so always trade with bots.

Which of our trading bots do you use most frequently, and why do you prefer them over others?

DCA bots, because of the open with market price and conditional TP feature which allows us to do a save and borrow strategy. Also, there is a min max price feature which allows us to spread the price in each pair.

Can you walk us through a recent successful trade that you executed using our platform’s bots? What was your strategy and which tools did you utilize?

DCA bots, the big picture strategy is to spread the price in all pairs, go long and short simultaneously, which turns volatility into passive income.

Are there any specific features or tools on our platform that you consider essential to your trading success?

Currently, the basic features are open with market price, conditional TP, and the ability to add funds manually in deals (DCA Bots). The unlimited enterprise account helps with this strategy. The control panel makes it easy to monitor the bots because there are already a large number of them.

How do you analyze market trends and data to inform your trading decisions?

I don’t really use it for trading as our strategy uses all currency pairs on Binance.

What indicators or signals do you rely on the most when setting up your trading bots?


Distinguishing between news that creates fear and greed and news that is factual. Pay more attention to delisting news and possible exchange bank runs. Big news like ETF Approve can influence the decision to increase the number of bots in a particular pair.

1. Being able to trade bots for a living without having to do business or work.

2. A great learning experience was in the early days of 3Commas there was no bot limit, so every day we could create thousands of bots. The trial and error provided a deep understanding of the DCA and Grid features.

What advice would you give to new traders looking to use bots for their trading strategies?

1. Make sure the trading mindset is strong so that you have confidence in what you are going to do.

2. Determine the strategy you want to use and execute it with patience and discipline.

3. Practice good financial management, so as not to worry about the 99% dump or excessive greed.

Lalu ada teman yang kenalin ke 3Commas dan terus pakai 3Commas karena tidak ada gas fee. Tertarik di crypto karena investasi yang lebih menjanjikan dibanding property, saham, emas, dll.

tertarik menggunakan bot trading karena saat trading manual ada efek fear n greed. Mulai trading tahun 2008 di saham, merambah ke forex, dan akhirnya ke crypto.

Bagaimana Anda menentukan waktu yang tepat untuk masuk dan keluar dari trading?

Tidak terlalu digunakan untuk trading karena strateginya menggunakan semua pair mata uang di Binance.

Indikator atau sinyal apa yang paling Anda andalkan saat mengatur bot trading Anda?

1. Pastikan mindset trading kuat sehingga mempunyai keyakinan dengan yang akan dilakukan.

2. Tentukan strategi yang ingin digunakan dan jalankan dengan sabar dan disiplin.
