dYdX Alerts Technical Documentation

What is dYdX Alerts?

dYdX alerts is a free, noncustodial tool for you to get alerts before your dYdX position is liquidated. All software is open source, and the alert bot runs on users’ systems (rather than on a centralized platform). This requires that users run their own bot, for which we recommend using a cloud service provider. The bot requires negligible system resources and can be run using a free-tier on most cloud platforms; we recommend using DigitalOcean’s $100 of free credit on their free tier (link), which will give you up to 20 months of free usage for the bot if you select the smallest droplet size.

Quick Start

If you want to run your own dYdX alert bot, follow the “Run from Docker” instructions in the usage guide. You can also watch a video guide for setting up the alerts bot by following along here.
