Stellar Battle for 20,000 XLM Kelp Trading Bot Discussed with Nikhil Saraf of Stellar Development FoundationSeptember 21, 2020
Sam Conner recently discussed the “KELP Trading Bot” with Nikhil Saraf from the Stellar Development Foundation and also with Wouter Arkink from Stellar battle.
For those who do not know, Kelp is a free, customizable, open-source trading bot for Stellar universal marketplace.
In the podcast, they discussed about “What the Kelp software will be able to do, how it will be able to aim to provide for liquidity to the Stellar Decentralized Exchange (DEX), how it can be used to trade the different forms of value on the Stellar network, how it is not just confined to the Stellar DEX, and on how it has got the capability to integrate seamlessly with several hundreds of exchanges like Kraken.
The general feeling is that the power of Kelp is mostly unknown and not tapped with several features like the Graphical User Interface in development. Of note, there is currently a Stellar battle with a 20,000 XLM prize pool are to be split among three people that produce high quality educational content about Kelp.
Sydney Ifergan, the crypto expert tweeted: “Stellar Lumens are doing a lot of work for Meridian 2020, which is evident from the list of high quality speakers who will make it to the event.”
