# setprice

setprice base rel price (volume max cancel_previous=true base_confs base_nota rel_confs rel_nota min_volume)

The setprice method places an order on the orderbook, and it relies on this node acting as a maker, also called a Bob node.

The setprice order is always considered a sell, for internal implementation convenience.

TIP

To prevent a user from making trades in which the transaction fees may end up costing a significant portion of the value of the trade, we have set a lower limit to the value of a trade. See the description of the volume and min_volume arguments for more info.

# Arguments

Structure Type Description
base string the name of the coin the user desires to sell
rel string the name of the coin the user desires to receive
price numeric string or rational the price in rel the user is willing to receive per one unit of the base coin
volume numeric string or rational the maximum amount of base coin available for the order, ignored if max is true; the following values must be greater than or equal to the min_trading_vol of the corresponding coin:
  • the argument volume
  • the product of the arguments volume and price
min_volume numeric string or rational the minimum amount of base coin available for the order; it must be less or equal than volume param; the following values must be greater than or equal to the min_trading_vol of the corresponding coin:
  • the argument min_volume
  • the product of the arguments min_volume and price
max bool AtomicDEX API will use the entire coin balance for the order, taking 0.001 coins into reserve to account for fees
cancel_previous bool AtomicDEX API will cancel all existing orders for the selected pair by default; set this value to false to prevent this behavior
base_confs number number of required blockchain confirmations for base coin atomic swap transaction; default to base coin configuration if not set
base_nota bool whether dPoW notarization is required for base coin atomic swap transaction; default to base coin configuration if not set
rel_confs number number of required blockchain confirmations for rel coin atomic swap transaction; default to rel coin configuration if not set
rel_nota bool whether dPoW notarization is required for rel coin atomic swap transaction; default to rel coin configuration if not set
save_in_history boolean Defaults to true. If set to false no order history will be saved (though order status will be temporarily stored while in progress). If true, each order's short record history is stored in a local SQLite database table, and when the order is cancelled or fully matched, it's history will be saved as a json file

# Response

Structure Type Description
result object the resulting order object
result.base string the base coin of the order
result.rel string the rel coin of the order
result.price string (numeric) the expected amount of rel coin to be received per 1 unit of base coin; decimal representation
result.price_rat rational the expected amount of rel coin to be received per 1 unit of base coin; rational representation
result.max_base_vol string (numeric) the maximum volume of base coin available to trade; decimal representation
result.max_base_vol_rat rational the maximum volume of base coin available to trade; rational representation
result.min_base_vol string (numeric) AtomicDEX API won't match with other orders that attempt to trade less than min_base_vol; decimal representation
result.min_base_vol_rat rational AtomicDEX API won't match with other orders that attempt to trade less than min_base_vol; rational representation
result.created_at number unix timestamp in milliseconds, indicating the order creation time
result.updated_at number unix timestamp in milliseconds, indicating the order update time
result.matches object contains the map of ongoing matches with other orders, empty as the order was recently created
result.started_swaps array of strings uuids of swaps that were initiated by the order
result.uuid string uuid of the created order
result.conf_settings.base_confs number number of required blockchain confirmations for base coin atomic swap transaction

result.conf_settings.rel_nota bool whether dPoW notarization is required for rel coin atomic swap transaction
result.base_orderbook_ticker string the ticker of the base currency if orderbook_ticker is configured for the base currency in coins file. If not defined, will return a null value.
result.rel_orderbook_ticker string the ticker of the rel currency if orderbook_ticker is configured for the rel currency in coins file. If not defined, will return a null value.
