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.
