Today, we will be reviewing Cryptohopper, a popular trading bot that includes a variety of features that allows users to make trades automatically.

Cryptohopper Overview

Cryptohopper is an online platform that enables the use of an automated trading bot. The bot is semi-automated, meaning you will have to implement the strategies, and the bot will place the trades on your behalf.


The platform is owned and operated by Cryptohopper BV, which is headquartered in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. The Cryptohopper platform launched in 2017, and since its release, the company claims it has had more than 140,000 users.

The Cryptohopper project was created by two brothers, Ruud Feltkamp & Pim Feltkamp, with the former having experience in day trading and web development.

The bot works on a 24/7 basis, relying on technical trading algorithms and programmed trading tactics.

Supported Currencies and Available Countries

Security Features

Trading bots usually work via an API for making the trades on the exchanges, so they do not require to transfer any money to an account owned by the bot developers. The API keys are generated on the exchanges you choose, and these keys restrict the access of the bot to your trading account.

Bots are also not able to perform withdrawal as well, and neither are hackers in the event of a breach. Cryptohopper can set up two-factor authentication (2FA) to enhance their account security.

Cryptohopper Reputation

While Cryptohopper has a positive score on TrustPilot of 3.5 out of 5, there are only 6 reviews.

Even if there are several reviews online, the main concern is that many do not seem genuine. Some of the reviews also claimed they had lost hundreds, even thousands through the trading app. The win percentage of the signals was also reported to be less than 65%, which meant that it took less than a month to lose their entire investment.

Several reviews have also complained that the dashboard is not that easy to use.

Cryptohopper Review: Verdict

Cryptohopper is a trading bot designed for the crypto market, which enables the fully automated and semi-automated trading of digital assets across 11 major exchanges by using a number of trading technologies and tools. But the app is rather expansive and not as convenient to use for beginners.
