Ethfinex adds direct Tether conversion pair November 27, 2018

As of today, November 27th 2018, Ethfinex will be adding a trading pair between Tether USDT and USD, as well as Tether EURT and EUR. Previously USDT deposits were credited as USD, but will now be credited instead as USDT. Although Ethfinex does not directly support bank deposits or withdrawals, verified customers can still withdraw fiat using a linked Bitfinex accounts.

All existing USD balances on Ethfinex will remain as they are and are thus unaffected by this change. Any Tether deposits initiated after this time will be credited to the user's Tether wallets.

This update coincides with increased flexibility in the redemption of Tether via the Tether.to platform. Traders using Tether are now able to redeem their USDTs to USD directly through the newly-updated Tether.to platform, which now supports full account set-up and verification whilst enabling direct Tether-to-fiat conversions at a fixed 1:1 rate. Please refer to the the full Tether announcement to learn more.

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.

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.
