Welcome to the Halo Platform bi-weekly newsletter! Every two weeks, we provide the latest updates on our development in several departments. In this week’s newsletter, we want to focus your attention on the continued development of HaloDEX, Halo Platform’s decentralized exchange.
We are pleased to announce that the public beta release of HaloDEX will begin on August 15. The first available trading pair will be HALO/ETH. After a few days of testing, BTC and other token pairs will be added and available for trade.
Shortly after the launch of HaloDEX, we plan to start our Coin/Token Voting Competition. The competition will allow users to vote for their favorite projects to be listed on HaloDEX. Projects with the highest votes at the end of the competition will be reviewed and selected as the next coin/token added to HaloDEX. These votes will take place regularly, so vote early and often. If you want to see your project listed on the DEX, outside of the voting competition, you can inquire via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The launch of HaloDEX is the next big step forward for Halo Platform. The Halo Platform team has poured everything they have into making HaloDEX a reality, and we are all very excited to see our vision unfold. But don’t think HaloDEX is all we have up our sleeves — we will have several more new cryptocurrency tools, products, and services to showcase. The Halo Platform team has been hard at work developing new platform features and blockchain-based services that will be ready for launch very soon — particularly from our Block & Chain Game Studio.
Centralized Exchange (HaloX) Update
The peer-to-peer margin funding system that matches trades, manages risk, and implements accounts has been completed and tested. Our team has hardened some of the matching engine core functions to improve scalability. Currently, we are focused on continuous deployment procedures that will allow modules of the exchange to be hot upgraded to minimize downtime.
The masternode system is still receiving regular updates to improve speed and usability. A big change is coming to the statistics view, which will show a user’s personal distribution of masternode ownership and how much Halo they have invested in masternodes. Masternode owners will also soon be able to request to have their masternode terminated directly from the dapp. Finally, our new API system will provide a long-term solution to performance issues caused by chain size. Look for the latest update very soon.
The Portfolio’s interface is still in the early stages of development, but we’ve finished the dashboard layout system and are now working on creating great looking charts to display multiple datasets from multiple exchanges. Pretty soon, we’re going to have many different chart types including (but not limited to) candlestick, OLHC and pie charts to show information like portfolio holdings, price history and other portfolio/exchange data.
Block & Chain Games Update
In the last newsletter, we teased Blockfight! — Block & Chain Game Studios’ exciting turn-based creature battle game. In this immersive dice rolling game, players battle hi-res 3D monsters for guts, glory, and valuable rewards. Beat them all and fill your trophy room! Blockfight will launch hot on the heels of HaloDEX, but to keep stoking the fire of excitement behind this and the other blockchain-enabled games under development at Block & Chain, we are pleased to share a gameplay clip from Blockfight. Stay tuned for more updates, as additional information on the game platform and our first titles will be shared in the coming days.
