It’s only Monday, and we already have a whole raft of Digitex news and updates to share! From a new exchange listing in Vietnam to the next round of our popular photo contest with giveaways, to a podcast interview with Adam – read on for all the latest from the DFE.
New Exchange Listing
To kick things off, we’re delighted to announce another new exchange listing for DGTX! VCC Exchange will soon start listing the DGTX token paired with ETH. The exchange is currently preparing the pair for deposits and withdrawals, which will open imminently.
VCC is focused predominantly on the Vietnamese and Singaporean markets, listing 135 coins in 211 token pairs. It offers a fiat onboarding service in Vietnamese dong and has worked with the Vietnamese government on various initiatives, including a legal framework for blockchain-based applications.
Photo Contest – Now Open Once Again!
The first round of our photo contest proved so popular with our mainnet traders that we’ve revived it. This time, the mainnet group can put their creativity to the test with a fresh round of prizes.
The rules are slightly different from the last contest but are very simple. Post a picture of your mainnet trading setup either at home, or in a unique, beautiful, or interesting location on Twitter or Facebook and send it in using this form.
We will raffle the prizes on July 1, live! Prizes are as follows:
- First place – 5,000 DGTX
- Second and third place – A silver DGTX coin
- Fourth and fifth place – A Digitex cap or t-shirt
Entries are limited to one per person per day, and duplicates will be rejected. If someone submits more than one entry per day, the last one will be accepted as their submission. The day ends at midnight UTC.
Hacker Noon Podcast Interview with Adam
Last Friday, Adam took to the airwaves for a podcast interview with Utsav Jaiswal for the Hacker Noon Podcast. The episode is titled “How to build a cryptocurrency exchange from scratch by Adam Todd, CEO & Founder of Digitex Futures,” and over the course of an hour, Adam and Utsav get into all the nitty-gritty of building the DFE.
Starting with the beginnings of Adam’s discovery of crypto and the potential of smart contracts, to the rollercoaster journey to launch, including all the bumps along the way – this interview is not one to miss. Adam talks about the multiple lessons he’s learned, the trepidation he felt in the day before launch, and his pride in how far the DFE has come. Make sure you add it to your playlist.
250 More Traders Onboarded to the Mainnet
Last Thursday, we onboarded another group of 250 traders to the mainnet. Over the weekend, the DFE saw an increase of around 10-12% volume compared with weekday activities, and a high of $123 million 24-hour volume.
As usual, the feedback we’re getting from newcomers is overwhelmingly positive, and traders are making some healthy profits to boot!
True Crypto Patriot managed to reap 50% profit within the first few days of trading, while cryptomug358 describes the DFE as a “dream.”
CryptoVenture explains how even a relatively small stake can quickly start making gains.
Snocksy managed to turn his fortunes around:
By the time the next round of onboarding is complete later this week, we will have over 1,000 traders on the mainnet. Over July, we will be ramping up onboarding significantly, with users from all three waitlist contests set to join the mainnet, before we open to the public. So, all in all, the DFE continues to deliver on every front!
