How to Run a Market Maker

Once you have the running infrastructure from the previous steps, running the market maker is simple. Clone the Microtick Examples repository and execute the following commands:

$ cd microtick_examples/marketmaker
$ cp config-example.json config.json
$ yarn install
$ node mm

Once the market maker is up and running, you'll see it creating and updating quotes in realtime, using the ShapeShift CoinCap API as a data source for quotes.

Feel free to play around with this setup because there are no "real" funds at risk and everything is running on your local computer!
