Welcome to the Halo Platform Bi-Weekly newsletter! This is where we provide updates on recent developments and announcements for upcoming news, products, and events.
The monthly AMA (Ask Me Anything) session was streamed on our Youtube channel last Sunday. We answered many questions with Michael Quale, our Chief Technology Officer. Michael discussed a handful of interesting topics pertaining to security, scalability, and both centralized and decentralized exchanges. In case you were not able to watch the live stream, an archived video is available here to watch any time. We plan to continue running our regular AMAs in the near future.
Since HaloDEX has gone public beta on our testnet network, we’ve taken in a lot of feedback and suggestions. This information is driving improvements to the decentralized exchange’s performance as well as user experience. Testing is still ongoing and if you would like to join the public beta, please see our instructions to get started. At this point, we’re working on wrapping up the final pieces of the DEX.
We continue to release testnet updates to the community every one to two days. Once user feedback is implemented and final performance enhancements are made, we will launch HaloDEX on our mainnet network. The importance of releasing a stable product is crucial for us and our supporters. With an exchange, security and functional use are imperative and we want to ensure the DEX exceeds expectations.
Development on the centralized exchange, HaloX, is ongoing, with back end systems up and running and ongoing enhancements inherited from the DEX. In addition, websocket implementation and integration into the website’s UI is underway and we expect to have a fully working interface over the next couple of sprints. Value pricing and Settlement mechanisms are also now in place so we have a way to constantly update product risk on the fly. Stay tuned for more updates on HaloX.
Halo Platform Portfolio updates
Our developers have been working hard to create charts which will display information about your cryptocurrency portfolio. They’ve also started preparation to hook up to external exchange APIs to fetch various market data and retrieve transaction history. In the below image, see how a chart and source are selected. The chosen information displays chart metrics based on the currency and date range. Our portfolio management system will be available in the future for Featherlite.
Business Development updates
Hello from Matt Dowd. I was asked to explain some of the work we have been doing on the business development front. First off, I just want to say that, after my past career experience as a commodities floor trader and a business development manager for a global derivatives exchange, it is so exciting to be a part of the team during this incredible time of growth and development. In the past two weeks, we have had several meetings with various industry disruptors and potential platform partners. Overwhelmingly, these meetings have yielded a strong belief that Halo Platform’s technology is a network of choice to take blockchain businesses to the highest level. Although specific partnerships cannot be discussed yet, more updates will be announced as they progress.
In addition, we are working very diligently to get HALO listed on many popular exchanges. Although there are many existing and up-and-coming exchanges, a majority of cryptocurrency traders prefer to use only a few select platforms. Exclusively relying our own exchanges is not the end-game. Being listed on key exchanges grants Halo Platform plenty of room for mass adoption.
Block & Chain Games updates
The Block and Chain Game Studio’s website officially went live last week. A lot of information can be found here to know more about the gaming division and the amazing team working to create some exciting games on the Halo Platform project. In addition, the roadmap shows how close Block Fight and Draggin’ Dragons is from launch.

Last week, we launched our public forum aimed at increasing our online presence. News, industry topics, patch notes, blogs and reward payouts are just a few topics users can discover for both the Halo Platform and Block & Chain Games. If you’re interested in learning about user tips or guidance within the Halo Platform, please ask and we will provide as much information as possible. If the information is not already present in the forum, login and start a new discussion.
