I am moving aboard a sailboat in the Caribbean next month. I am wanting to be able to work on some of my own algorithms while offline and as such, it'd require me to pull down a lot of data for back testing.
I am wondering if anyone has any platforms they can suggest to use as the backtest engine? If I have to focus on stock base bots, then that is what it is, but I'd prefer to focus on developing crypto based bots so the engine would need to support that.

I was able to take my strategy offline and find optimized parameters after seeing a few examples.
