How I used USDT client on my home Windows machine

First, as a true C++ developer, I installed Ubuntu 18.04 and compiled omnicore from sources, but after that I realized that Windows omnicore-0.9.0 client can be downloaded and run directly on my Windows 10 machine.

I found omnicore-qt.exe in the unpacked files and run it:


A proper Ubuntu 18.04 installation for running Ethereum node

My first experiment with a peak detection algorithm

Hi guys!

For those how are interested in what I am doing now I provided my app screenshots with ‘Find Peaks’ button that runs ZScore algorithm on a cryptocurrency market data (follow the this link for the algorithm source code in C++).

Honestly I am not quite enough understand yet how it works, because I run it first time today, but at least there is some correlation between input parameters and the results. The lesser the threshold and the longer the lag the lesser peaks are found. Increasing the influence also reduces the peak count.
