In today’s newsletter, we have some exciting details to cover on the launch of our decentralized exchange, HaloDex. HaloDex is nearly complete! With HaloDex, users will be able to trade HALO with other cryptocurrency pairs within the Featherlite wallet or dedicated web portal. There will be no need to download a 3rd party application, which is part of our vision of being the all-in-one crypto platform.
Once HaloDex has launched, we will offer a project voting competition where the community can vote to have their favorite projects listed on the exchange. More details will be announced next week.
Throughout next week, we will also provide regular updates to our community with information pertaining to the HaloDex launch.
HaloDex — Features
HaloDex will feature a brand new user interface that stands-out for its ease of use. The new UI will be fed by a fast back-end and powered by an elegant, intuitive user interface. Users will immediately experience an ultra-fast lazy loaded (loaded only when used) front-end. In addition, there will be no requirement to sign-up with an email in order to use the DEX. The only requirement will be a valid Halo address.
Upon release, we will offer base trading with a handful of currencies and tokens, with new ones added regularly based on community selection. The main difference between HaloDex and most other Decentralized Exchanges is that they only allow trading of Ethereum and Ethereum ERC-20 Tokens. The HaloDex has the capacity to trade every coin, regardless of network or algorithm, USDT, DASH, EOS, XRP, XMR, with no limitations to our capacity for listing a coin. Also, running on the Halo Platform Network allows for a much greater execution speed and overall faster experience. Only pay gas or transaction fees on Deposit or Withdrawal, never on trades, which will reduce your overall cost per trade. Look for our more details on HaloDex next week.
The satisfaction of most traders’ basic needs will be available, such as: buy and sell orders, price chart, price depth, transaction history, deposits/withdrawals, as well as volume data. We plan to submit community voting for other projects, so everyone can have the opportunity to weigh in on our next listed coins. Stay tuned for more information on community listing voting.
Our HaloDex and HaloX logo competition is underway! Last week we had over 50 submissions enter the competition, which we have narrowed down for community selection. The winners of the HaloDex and HaloX logo competition will each receive 50 HALO. To cast your vote, add one reaction to your favorite logo in the #halodex-logo-contest channel in our Discord community. The selection ends quickly, so be sure to cast a vote for your favorite logo soon.
Next week, we will also release our exchange whitepaper and HaloDex.io landing page to the community.

Progress continues on the centralized exchange. This week the team focused on the API security implementation and we now have a very robust authentication procedure and policy in place. Focus right now is on the Peer-to-Peer margin implementation, after which we will be getting very close to feature completion and beginning work on hardening and testing. Look for the pre-registration site coming soon!
Earlier this week we released a patch for the Masternode DAPP. Please see below for a list of patch notes. To install the update, simply click the “Refresh” button while on the Masternode Monitoring page within Featherlite.
