Bringing Dusk Network Token Sale to Ethfinex October 26, 2018

We are pleased to present the Dusk Network token sale as the first token sale to be made available on Ethfinex via our new token sale platform.

Dusk Network is a decentralized infrastructure that enables fast, anonymous and secure bi-directional transmission of data among peers. The Dusk Network token sale will take place on Ethfinex between October 28th and November 8th, 2018.

 
What is Dusk Network?

Dusk is a blockchain-powered network that simultaneously guarantees transaction confidentiality and aspects of regulatory compliance on chain.

Dusk Network is designed for a restricted set of use cases ranging from issuance of Confidential Security Tokens to decentralized darkpool implementation and secure communications. The consensus mechanism (referred to as SBA*) is designed to bridge privacy and transparency for regulators.

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.

Trading enabled for Waltonchain (WTC), Melonport (MLN), Credits (CS) and YGGDRASH (YEED) October 18, 2018

Ethfinex is pleased to introduce trading for Waltonchain (WTC), Melonport (MLN), Credits (CS) and YGGDRASH (YEED).

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.
New Reporting Tools Released October 09, 2018

As institutions and professional traders enter the digital asset trading space, Ethfinex remains committed to providing the tools required to take control and succeed within the space. Our team is of the belief that our suite of tools work to accelerate the rate of global adoption and help facilitate an increasingly mature market.

Today we are pleased to present a new suite of reporting tools designed to enhance user control and understanding of their trading progress.

The new reporting tools were created with simplicity and accessibility in mind. Traders on Ethfinex can now compile an instant overview of necessary account information, stemming as far back as account history goes.

For an overview of the new open-sourcereport tools, please refer to the Bitfinex blog post.

Santiment, Status, Eidoo & FunFair added to Ethfinex Trustless October 06, 2018

We launched Ethfinex Trustless two weeks ago, with Ethereum (ETH) and 0x (ZRX) pairs, providing users with the ability to trade exceptional Ethereum projects with thousands of other traders, directly from their Ethereum wallets.

Since then, our users have voiced a lot of interest in seeing the number of tradable pairs expanded to include a more diverse selection of tokens. In line with that, we are pleased to now introduce trading for Santiment (SAN), Status (SNT), Eidoo (EDO) & FunFair (FUN) on Ethfinex Trustless.

Traders across every corner of the globe now have access to 6 high-quality Ethereum tokens which they can trade safely from their wallets against a high-performance, centralised matching engine. In the coming weeks we have on the horizon to add significantly more tradable tokens to Ethfinex Trustless, including DAI pairs, to do our part to decentralise the digital asset trading space.

Thank you all for your enthusiasm and helpful feedback throughout the first few weeks of Ethfinex Trustless.

Take control of your trading on trustless.ethfinex.com.

Infrastructure Maintenance Update - October 4th, 2018 October 03, 2018

Ethfinex will be undertaking planned infrastructure maintenance on October 4, 2018 between 06:00 AM UTC and 18:00 PM UTC. The exact timing of the maintenance update will made public 30 minutes prior to the start of the update.

Traders should expect a service interruption of roughly 2 hours while this maintenance is being performed.

During the update, all trading and financing markets will be unavailable and no deposits or withdrawals will be processed. Users will be unable to control, edit or cancel their active orders and active positions throughout the maintenance period. Users who wish to not be affected by potential price movements on other platforms once Bitfinex reopens *must* take action by cancelling orders and closing positions before the update begins.

Unfortunately we cannot give an exact time for the platform update other than the abovementioned broad parameters due to the risk of DDOS attacks, attempted market manipulation and more. We will do our utmost to communicate the precise timing to all our users in sufficient time for you to prepare your trading strategy accordingly.

To stay informed throughout the maintenance period, please refer to twitter.com/ethfinex.

Thank you,

The Ethfinex Team
