Hi, I got this error after about an hour of running the script from a cloud hosting instance.

The error that stopped the script:

Unhandled error, please open a Github issue so we can fix it!

A warning I got when running the script

I don’t imagine the bot would have stopped. This is the same issue @utdrmac was having.

Haven’t had time to look into it yet though. I don’t think the gap logic works as we expect on bitfinex.

adamgencommented, Nov 18, 2017

It didn’t stop and it’s working just fine, I’m closing the issue.
