2、 Observe the P2P price difference between CEX and OpenOcean,and target to find currency pairs with relatively large difference.

For example, OpenOcean finds the best price for BAKE/BNB is 0.000445,and meanwhile the BAKE/BNB price on Binance is 0.0005. The price of BAKE is relatively better compared to BNB on OpenOcean while the price of BNB is relatively better compared to BNB on Binance. That means there is room for arbitrage.
