Switcheo Weekly Round Up #17

  • Exchange Upgrades

    To better cater to your trading needs, we have been making improvements on the new trading platform since the launch of Switcheo Exchange V2.

    Trading charts on the exchange now have a shorter loading time, and extend properly to the full history of trading activity on each contract.

    Network fees are also now attached to transactions on behalf of users to prioritize trades during high load periods on the blockchain. Note that there are currently other unresolved issues with the NEO blockchain (such as transaction relaying order not considering the fees paid) which may still result in delayed transactions.

    We have made multiple improvements to historical pricing data such that this information is fed into the trading UIs and APIs quicker and more accurately.

    We understand our community is also eagerly anticipating the integration of Ethereum and Qtum blockchains on Switcheo. At this point in time however, we have not released the client on TestNet as we are dissatisfied with how the wallet management across multiple chain works, and we feel that a public beta at this time is inappropriate. We are currently working hard on an overhauled multi-wallet management system and hope to share it with everyone very soon!

    Finally, the engineering team has been cleaning up our internal codebases in preparation to open-source more components of the exchange such as the UI client and internal libraries / SDKs. We feel that this is a necessary endeavor for a decentralized exchange to increase trustlessness when trading. We also hope that the additional developer resources released will support the blockchain community at large.

    Revision of Pro-Trading Competition Timeline

    We have revised the Travala’s pro-trading competition timeline due to the temporary withdrawals issue of NEO on other exchanges.

    We will be postponing BOLT’s pro-trading competition formerly from 31st August — 9th September 2018to 14th September, 10:00 SGT — 23rd September 2018, 23:59 SGT.

    The revised competition dates are as follows:

    3rd August, 10:00 SGT to 14th August 2018, 23:59 SGT_ — Travala.com competition period_

    17th August, 10:00 SGT to **26th August 2018,**23:59 SGT_ — Bridge Protocol competition period_

    Token Listings

    Switcheo Exchange Lists Moonlight (LX)

    Don’t miss out on Moonlight (LX) listing on Switcheo Exchange tomorrow, 11th August 2018 at 12:00 SGT (UTC+8).

    The LX token will be available for trading from the beginning of the token sale and we believe that being able to exchange the token during the sale will be mutually beneficial for both projects.

    Switcheo Exchange Lists Redeemable HashPuppy Token (RHT)

    RHT is now tradable on Switcheo Exchange with the exclusive use of SWTH tokens!

    Transaction fees from taker orders to buy RHT will be paid in SWTH tokens. Please ensure you have sufficient SWTH in your contract balance.

    Maker orders still have zero fees, and selling of RHT tokens can be done with or without SWTH tokens. For more information on Switcheo’s Exchange fee structure, please click here.

    Remember to also use SWTH for your trading fee to enjoy 50% discount!

    V1 API Deprecation Notice

    Our engineering team would also like to inform all users and market aggregators who are using our previous unpublished (private) V1 API, that the API has been deprecated and will be removed after 14 days.

    Please ensure that you have migrated to our public V2 API by 24th August 2018.
