Cron Job That Fetches Bitcoin Exchange Rate Not Working?

Post by CodePythonGB » Thu Jul 05, 2018 8:03 pm

Nginx, vestacp, bitshop setup with Tor on 127.0.0.1 and centos7 server.
Setup this cron job in vestacp. Set it to 45 minutes and entered.

php -q /public_html/Bitshop/goxgrab/data_update.php

Errors are still displaying on the website and the bitcoin exchange rates are not updating.

The cron job is calling upon bitstamp.net to provide the exchange data. I tried visiting bitstamp.net through tor and it was blocking exit nodes from Tor. Could this be why my cron job is not working?

The goxgrab folder was removed quite a few releases ago so you must be running a fairly old version of BitShop. I would recommend updating to the latest version.

I'd go as far as to say that the bitcoin exchange rate is broken in general. There's no explanation of such sudden rises and sudden falls in the history of currencies. I have some experience in currencies trading but cryptocurrencies are woods in the darkest forest for me. The best I can do with the BTC is to gamble. It's gambling in every aspect of dealing with the currency anyway. Check this blog to get the full picture bitcoin casino
