Crypto Trading Execution with Flash Loans, Web3 and Hardhat
What you'll learn
- Build your own Flash Loan (Flash Swap) Smart Contracts for arbitrage across multiple exchanges
- Perform a triangular arbitrage Flash Loan (FlashSwap) transaction on Pancakeswap
- Write and test a Flash Loan Smart Contract with HardHat
- Build a trading algorithm which can read data and transact a swap in Python
- Read and Write data to the Ethereum and Binance Smart Chain blockchains
- Send and check transactions via Web3
- Understand how to use Ethers JS for interacting with Smart Contracts
- Calculate Gas used on transactions
- Deploy Smart Contracts to the Ethereum blockchain
- Knowledge of cryptocurrency and DeFi exchanges such as Uniswap and PancakeSwap
- Basic knowledge of Arbitrage (preferably completed the Triangular Arbitrage course)
Learn how to reduce your risk in trading on the Ethereum and Binance Smart Chain blockchain networks by using Flash Loans via the Flash Swaps functions on the Uniswap and PancakeSwap Smart Contracts. In this course, we will cover all aspects of being able to borrow capital via the mechanism of a Flash Loan - which can only be done on the blockchain. Nothing like this exists outside of the blockchain. With this mechanism, if as long as the amount is paid back within the same transaction, you keep your arbitrage gains. If not, it's as though the transaction never happened and you're only left covering the gas fees.
We go deep into how to program and deploy a smart contract, but even more importantly, how to read, write and interact with Smart Contracts on the blockchain with Ethers JS. Hardhat is also used extensively for testing and deploying our own Smart Contracts too.
If you love Python, we have you covered too. There is a whole module just on how to interact with Smart Contracts where Shaun trades live to show the theory working in practice too.
If you have been trying to figure out Flash Loans or Flash Swaps and just can't find the code, or simply need help understanding it, then this is the course for you. We will go through each line of code and explain what it does. In this course you learn the principles, so that you can apply these in your own way to your own strategy.
For traders looking to improve their programming skills, you will likely love this. For programmers looking to learn some trading techniques, you will love this.
See you in class!
Who this course is for:
- Traders with an interest in programming looking to lower risk in arbitrage trading
- Programmers with an interest in trading looking to work on an interesting project to learn solidity
"I care about having an idea that is unusual, finding hidden gems and exposing them for those who have left the world of hype and are looking for something more real. Rinse and repeat. My teaching is an outlet for myself to put ideas into action, helping others effectively along the way and sharing for those without the same level of experience. I keep falling into other ventures, but am always happiest and most content when returning back to the teaching initiatives."
