It’s turning out to be a mammoth week here at Digitex! Not only have we launched the DGTX Rewards Program and implemented a host of upgrades to the exchange but the digitexcity.com domain is now up and running as well. Let us know what you think of the new branding and don’t forget to stock up on DGTX to start making one of the highest ROIs in the industry.
Also, keep in mind that amongst all the excitement over the rewards program and new domain, the greatest news of all is that DGTX will soon have a NEW utility — to serve as collateral for the DUSD stablecoin, the new currency of Digitex City, coming in less than one month… not many coins can say that!
The DUSD stablecoin will be used in many ways within Digitex City, creating continuously increased demand for it. From trading futures and forex markets to earning rewards from liquidity mining, or purchasing advertising in Digitex Connect, or buying income yielding bonds, check out all the utility the DUSD will have:
In the coming weeks, we’ll be sharing more information about how you can take full advantage of all these money-making opportunities. But for now, let’s take a look at the incredible work our developers have completed today and what it means for the exchange.
Today’s Exchange Upgrades
Thank you for your patience during the scheduled maintenance session today. We understand that any break in trading may be inconvenient but we’re sure that you’ll be as excited with the results as we are. Not only is our flagship futures exchange now running leaner and meaner than ever before but we’ve added in the necessary features to optimally support our spot, futures, and forex markets as well. Plus, a few other benefits besides. Read on to find out more.
Besides a few bug fixes to improve the user experience, the scheduled mainnet update has a few other components. Perhaps the key feature that you won’t immediately notice is that we have been able to lay the foundation to move forward quickly and easily with new markets, the DUSD, and the many other exciting features that we have planned for December.
The infrastructure update implemented by the developers is split across two key areas, RabbitMQ clusterization and failover, and the reengineering of the WebSocket layer. In technical terms, two instances of the RabbitMQ server have been employed. The goal of this is to improve the reliability of the exchange and make it more stable with less UI slippage.
The developers have also reengineered the WebSocket layer. Getting a little technical again, this means that Intermediate Redis storage for inbound and outbound messages is eliminated. In layman’s terms? It’s about improving both the reliability and the response time of the exchange, again, with the goal of making it more stable and with reduced UI slippage.
During this maintenance period, the internal communication protocol has also been changed. It’s amazing what developers can do given two hours and no interruptions! While the new version is not backward compatible with the current one, exchange users do not have to do anything.
Traders will find that the exchange is sleeker, faster, and more robust than ever before; a truly state-of-the-art beast of an exchange that also simplifies bot development. This is huge news for API bot traders that have been requesting a more user-friendly environment to create and execute bot trading on the platform.
The team also tackled the issue of correcting the handling of decimals on the ladder and in other places. This change will not affect users in any way but will simply contribute to the stellar performance of the exchange as we add additional markets and features.
When it comes to order handling improvements, you should now see some notable changes, especially if you’re a fast and frequent trader. In tech-speak, the order client_id is preserved during the whole order lifetime. Once again in layman’s terms, the exchange is now more sophisticated and cutting-edge than ever before and this action will also help to simplify bot development. We have also added in some key preparations for the functionality of the futures, forex, and spot markets.
Custodian and Treasury
Another exciting upgrade that the developers have implemented is support for several ETH-based tokens, including USDT. This update marks the final preparations for adding new markets and each new market (futures, forex, spot) will be announced and opened separately over the next few weeks.
You may not notice all or any of these upgrades at first but we’ve successfully finished paving the way for the slew of new features and products that are coming. Digitex City is going to break ground in the industry with its multiple ways to make money in a commission-free environment with a robust engine and infrastructure at its core.
