Overall client setup

In order to run the Bittylicious client, you must have:

  • PHP working via the command line.
  • The PHP cURL module.
  • Your OpenSSL private key saved as private.key in the Bittylicious client directory.
  • The bank account details set up as per the Bank account setup section.

The Bittylicious client checks whether you have any active trades from Bittylicious every 60 seconds. If one is active, it will log into your bank account to fetch a transaction list. If a transaction matches, the client will sign the transaction on your behalf and notify Bittylicious that the trade has been found.
