Token Sales on Ethfinex - A platform for secure, effortless contributions to token sales. October 26, 2018

Combining trading, discussion and research portals, Ethfinex was designed to pave the way for more informed decision-making, providing our users with the tools they need to successfully navigate the cryptocurrency landscape.

As a step further towards this goal, we are pleased to now unveil Token Sales on Ethfinex.

For more information, please refer to the full announcement post.

 
Token Sale Process

The new Ethfinex Token Sale platform will allow Ethfinex users to participate in pre-vetted token sales for a small number of new projects.

Every Ethfinex user will be eligible to enter each token sale draw at least once, whilst users holding a certain threshold of Nectar (NEC) tokens will be granted additional entries as part of our new Superuser concept. The entire token sale process is outlined in greater detail in the full announcement post.

Ethfinex token sales offer an exciting opportunity to discover new crypto-assets and to have access to sales that may normally be closed to small/non-institutional investors. We are incredibly excited to integrate high-quality token sales onto our platform and will be sharing more news on the first token sale hosted on our platform shortly.

 
Superusers on Ethfinex

Nectar (NEC) holders will from this moment onwards be rewarded with Superuser status.

There will be five levels of Superuser status, with each level being determined by the amount of NEC that a user holds. Superusers on Ethfinex will benefit from a number of rewards ranging from:

  • Fee discounts;
  • Priority access to new features;
  • Stronger voice in the decision making driving Ethfinex.

We are incredibly excited to be adding more use-case for the Nectar token and enhancing the impact which NEC token holders can have on the future of Ethfinex. To get set up as an Ethfinex Superuser, visit www.ethfinex.com/superuser.

 
What’s To Come

We have several projects lined up thus far and we aim to commence the first ever token sale on Ethfinex over the next few days. This is an exciting new development for the Ethfinex community and one which demonstrates our commitment of bringing together passionate token traders and innovative projects for the benefit of the whole space.

Presenting the Honey Framework: Algorithmic Orders October 18, 2018

Today we are happy to announce the release of the Honey Framework, beginning with an Algorithmic Order library for creating custom, complex order types for the Bitfinex platform.

This release includes two new open source libraries, bfx-hf-algo and bfx-hf-algo-server which together provide a complete algorithmic order system tightly integrated into the Bitfinex UI. They allow you to create your own custom order types & order form layouts in order to preview and submit the orders from the Bitfinex UI.

Bundled with the library are three algo orders which serve as examples for working with the system, and provide behaviors not available on any other cryptocurrency exchange: TWAP, Iceberg, and Accumulate/Distribute.

By next month, we will release the strategy portion of the Honey Framework, which includes tools for defining trading strategies, backtesting them on historical data, and executing them on the live markets.

Margin Trading & Funding Enabled For 0x (ZRX) October 17, 2018

0x (ZRX) is now available for lending and margin trading. This marks a turning point, after several months without making any new tokens available for leveraged trading, despite overwhelming numbers of requests from customers. We believe that allowing traders to take long or short positions on tokens they believe to be undervalued or overvalued is healthy for price discovery, and the overall market. We hope to add margin trading on a wider number of ERC20 trading pairs of the course of the next year.

Our previous decision to slow down the addition of margin trading on new tokens pairs was taken in order to protect users, since many trading pairs, particularly the smaller ERC20 tokens by market capitalisation and volume, were observed as more vulnerable to large price swings.

Risk Analysis Criteria

We have now completed development on a set of new risk and analysis tools which allow us to evaluate healthy markets. We will continue to build on these as we add new margin markets. ZRX is the first token to go through our analysis and meet all of our criteria. Some of the many high-level factors included in this decision process include:

  • ZRX/USD and ZRX/ETH trading pairs on our platform have been consistently healthy (both in user numbers and volume) since they were first added,
  • ZRX is traded on many exchanges, both centralised and decentralised,
  • ZRX has one of the more widely distributed ERC20 token holder bases.
Improved Fiat Deposit System: A Distributed Banking Solution October 16, 2018

Today we are introducing a new, improved and increasingly resilient fiat depositing system for sending fiat currencies to Bitfinex.

This new process will once again allow KYC-verified users from around the world to initiate deposits across USD, GBP, JPY and EUR.

The new fiat deposit system will function as follows:

  • A user wishing to initiate a fiat deposit on Bitfinex will create a deposit request to signal interest in completing a deposit. Through this deposit request, a user will be able to specify the exact amount and currency which they wish to deposit.
  • Following an account review (which may take up to 48 hours), the user will receive a deposit notification which will include, among other things, bank details specific to the individual’s transaction.
  • The user will be able to initiate the deposit based on the information received through the deposit notification. The deposit will subsequently be processed within 6-10 business days from Bitfinex.

The minimum fiat deposit amount on Bitfinex will remain at 10,000 USD with a 0.100% processing processing fee. Additional information on Bitfinex fiat management is available here.

We believe this system to be significantly more durable in the face of sustained attacks by our competition and their supporters. Ongoing campaigns against us will only result in our company becoming stronger and better.

Thank you to all of our users for their continued understanding throughout the entirety of this situation.
