Digitex Is Growing Our Ecosystem of Products

Digitex
• Digitex
May 31, 2021

By now, you’ll have probably heard our exciting news about the launch of Digitex’s own IEO platform Blockfunder. As with everything we do, we’ve been collecting your thoughts and feedback on the initiative. We’ve received a lot of praise and positivity around Blockfunder, but several concerns about the first project to launch, Blockster. So, let’s discuss your main queries here and let you in on the vision we have for Digitex moving forward.

Q. Why are you launching a new product, are you giving up on the exchange?

A. Absolutely not! Digitex is (and will always be) our flagship product and, as you know, we are continually working to develop and improve it, with zero-fee spot markets, improved UI, and competitive staking programs among some of our latest developments.

Blockfunder is just one of Digitex’s most recent products and, apart from many other advantages, we see it as an excellent opportunity to create an additional new utility for DGTX. As we will be accepting DGTX only in certain phases of the fundraisers, we have the chance to reduce its circulating supply. 

We’re not stopping at the Blockster platform, either. Our goal is to host all types of high-potential blockchain projects that we believe will become successful and expand the Digitex ecosystem. We’re launching Blockster first because it makes sense. As a dedicated social network for all things crypto, Blockster will help Digitex and benefit all future IEO projects. They will have a dedicated marketing channel to promote their token sales. 

Blockster will allow us to amass a highly targeted audience and direct traffic to the Digitex exchange. We can also build strategic partnerships with cryptocurrency projects via Blockster to be able to list them on Digitex for you to trade.

So for anyone concerned that we’re walking away from Digitex, nothing could be further from the truth. Blockster creates a tremendous opportunity for all of Digitex’s products to be marketed. Here are just a few examples:

  1. Blockfarm: Our new yield farming platform inside the exchange allows for attractive rewards in a host of different cryptocurrencies by staking DGTX. Within Blockster, there will be a link for users to discover new coins that they can farm by staking DGTX.
  2. Blockfunder: Our new IEO platform for launching up-and-coming projects. Users within Blockster can discover innovative initiatives and get in at the early stages.
  3. Digitex: Our flagship zero-fee spot and futures exchange. Users can be directed from Blockster to Digitex to buy any of the cryptocurrencies that are partnered with our exchange. If you get a chance to read the whitepaper, you’ll see that Blockster has a coin ranking page called Blockwatch (similar to Coinmarketcap). You can click on each individual coin and view their page. Over time, we plan to partner with all the major cryptos in the space and we build coin listing partnerships with Digitex.

Blockster will open doors for Digitex in so many ways. Our goal is to build an ecosystem of products that support each other. We’ve been working very hard, we’re moving at a much faster pace than ever before, and the quality of our products has greatly improved. That’s because we’ve dedicated a lot of time and effort to building a strong team to support our endeavors. 

We’re still working on improvements to the Digitex exchange and we’re very much aware of what we need to work on. The guys are working as fast as they can to improve key features like our API, liquidity, and volume–all without jeopardizing quality. As our technology improves, so will our ability to attract more and more users to Digitex. 

Q. What will happen to the DGTX collected?

A. The DGTX tokens which we collect from this IEO will be put away, and not sold back on the market. The idea is to collect tokens to reduce the circulating supply–putting them back out would be going backwards. Our company goal is to build demand for the DGTX token. This is why we’ve been introducing new products within our exchange that will lend more utility to the DGTX token.

Currently, DGTX allows you to trade on our zero-fee futures and spot markets, stake on Blockfarm, lend liquidity on Uniswap, earn liquidity mining rewards by trading DGTX for market-making purposes, and, most recently, buy new tokens on our IEO platform… And there’s still plenty more to come this year. 

So far, Q2 has been focused on releasing new products, testing, and improving them. What you’ll see during the second half of this year is a greater focus on business development, so that we can build new partnerships, get new listings for Digitex, and more tokens to yield farm on Blockfarm. Blockfunder will also have new initial exchange offerings. So we ask for your support, community! Because it’s all happening and it’s all going to come together.

Q. Is Blockster just an attempt at a “money grab”?

Unfortunately, we had a fair amount of concerns about Blockster, and some community members wanting to know why we’re tokenizing Blockster, and whether it’s just an attempt at a “money grab” from us. But, how is accepting DGTX only in half the phases of the token sale a money grab? We’re going to be reducing DGTX’s circulating supply, which will help our utility token to recapture value.

Moreover, we’re tokenizing Blockster for several other reasons as well. To start with, the money we raise will be used to further develop the platform and allow us to pursue high-scale marketing initiatives. Just imagine being able to have a few million users on Blockster! As a Digitex product, we can then direct the traffic straight to the exchange. This will be huge for us in attracting new users. 

Additionally, unlike the myriad of blockchain projects out there that still haven’t launched their products or have insufficient experience in development, Blockster is a product that has been in development for a full year now and is in the final testing stages, with a solid team behind it. 

As more people join the crypto industry, and existing participants still have to navigate a fragmented landscape for all their needs, Blockster will become the perfect go-to platform for them.

Q. Isn’t BXR at $1 per token too high?

A. No. We don’t think it is. Actually, if you do some research on the going rate to advertise cryptocurrency projects, you’ll see how expensive it is to advertise to a legitimate and highly targeted audience–we’re building that audience for Blockster. 

We want you to get behind us and understand our vision for the Digitex ecosystem. With the token sale coming up on June 7, we also want to make sure that we clear up any doubts and help you understand why Blockster is so well placed to succeed. So, please, if you still have questions, send them to our support team or share them on our social channels. We will answer them all.

Announcing Blockfunder - Our Brand-New IEO Platform 3

Announcing Blockfunder – Our Brand-New IEO Platform

Digitex
• Digitex
May 27, 2021

We told you on Monday that there was a lot more to come out of Digitex in Q2! Well, today, we’re excited to announce the launch of our brand-new IEO platform Blockfunder. Through our token launch platform, we aim to help finance and fast-track some of crypto’s most exciting and promising projects–and we’ll be kicking off with our very own in-house developed crypto social network Blockster (BXR). Read on for further details.

What Is Blockfunder?

Blockfunder is a platform that allows new and innovative cryptocurrency projects to benefit from the technology, experience, and network effect of the Digitex exchange. Through Blockfunder, you can get in on the ground floor of up-and-coming projects at their earliest stages of development with the assurance that only the highest quality offerings will be held.

Our internal team of engineers, compliance experts, and marketers will assess the project’s whitepaper, code, regulatory position, community, team, and potential, and hold new participants to the highest standards before allowing them to hold an IEO on our exchange. Through Blockfunder, we will be helping to finance a combination of in-house-built products like Blockster (BXR) and innovative external projects that we believe have great potential to succeed.

As well as supporting innovation and providing exclusive investment opportunities to crypto enthusiasts, Blockfunder is designed to lend additional utility to the DGTX token. Various token sales through Blockfunder will accept DGTX as payment, thus helping to restrict the circulating supply of the DGTX token and helping it recapture value.

CEO of Digitex Adam Todd commented: “We’re really excited to be launching our own IEO platform that will also introduce a new utility for our native DGTX token. As we raise funds for projects, partial payment will be accepted with DGTX, meaning a lot will be collected back from the total circulating supply.” 

What Is Blockster (BXR)?

The very first project to launch through Blockfunder will be Blockster, a social network dedicated to cryptocurrency enthusiasts with its own native token (BXR) that will be used for advertising and commerce on the platform, as well as staking. Blockster will be driven by user-generated content that focuses on making money in crypto and blockchain.

Announcing Blockfunder - Our Brand-New IEO Platform 4

Unlike existing social media platforms today, Blockster will provide everything in one platform. Crypto enthusiasts will no longer have to open several tabs to check the prices of their favorite assets, watch crypto influencers, create content, chat to friends, or read the news. 

Announcing Blockfunder - Our Brand-New IEO Platform 5

Blockster will come complete with a full market data feed for all cryptocurrencies, just like CoinMarketCap or CoinGecko. It will also have its own user-generated blog called Blockdesk, and a mobile app and NFT marketplace where users can buy and sell some of the hottest digital assets in crypto. With all these unique features in mind, Blockster aims to become ‘the social network’ for the crypto industry. 

Announcing Blockfunder - Our Brand-New IEO Platform 6

Blockster has been designed and developed in-house by Digitex specifically for crypto users, traders, and enthusiasts looking for opportunities to make money through investing and trading in digital assets. Unlike many projects at the initial coin offering stage, Blockster has already been under development for over a year now and is operating in a closed testnet version.

The Blockster (BXR) Token Sale 

The BXR token sale will be split into six separate phases that will sell a total of 10 million BXR tokens. This is 10% of the total token supply. For further details on the BXR token breakdown, please see the Blockster whitepaper here. 

Each phase of the token sale lasts until the start of the next phase or until all tokens have been sold, whichever comes first. The first phase will kick off on June 7, 2021, and the last phase, phase 6, will end on October 12, 2021 (or when all tokens have been sold).

The BXR token will start at $1 per BXR in the first phase and the price will gradually rise throughout the phases to $2.25. In the initial phase, as well as two other phases, only DGTX will be accepted as payment for BXR tokens. In the other three phases, we will be accepting BTC, ETH, and USDC. 

Once the token sale is concluded, BXR will be listed on Digitex, Uniswap, and other major exchanges that will be announced soon. You must complete KYC to take part in this token sale and US residents and citizens are unfortunately not allowed to participate.

We’ll be releasing more details about Blockster before the token sale begins, so be sure to stay tuned to our blog. In the meantime, you can read more about Blockster here or sign up for the waitlist by visiting this link. If you’re a content creator and would like to partner with Blockster, you can submit an application there as well.

Development Update - What’s Coming Next to Digitex? 11

Development Update – What’s Coming Next to Digitex?

Digitex
• Digitex
May 24, 2021

It’s been a rollercoaster year for the cryptocurrency industry–and we’re still in quarter two! If you’ve been around long enough, you’ll know that this type of volatility is completely normal for these markets. But, if you’re feeling rattled by the recent price corrections, we recommend you zoom out and focus on the fundamentals. That’s what we’re doing at Digitex. We’re building out our team, expanding our range of products and services, and improving our exchange. Catch the highlights below.

What We’ve Done in Q2 So Far

First and foremost, in 2021, we’ve expanded our core development team in Kyiv and made a ton of great progress this year. In quarter two so far, we’ve launched our zero-fee spot markets with major upgrades, including the UI, Liquidity Mining rewards, the ability to withdraw BTC, ETH, and USDC, and merging the main website to the new digitex.io domain.

We know that from your feedback, you’re loving our zero-fee markets and making huge savings when compared to trading on other exchanges. We’ve also added the ability to send crypto instantly with zero fees via email, making it much easier and cheaper to make payments and onboard new people to the exchange.

Development Update - What’s Coming Next to Digitex? 12

Earlier this month, we added more utility for the DGTX token by bringing you Blockfarm, our in-house yield farming platform that allows you to earn rewards in different cryptocurrencies by staking DGTX. We have two active programs on the platform so far with users earning rewards in BTC and ETH, each at over 100% APY currently. Stake and unstake at any time and put your DGTX stash to better use earning an easy passive income.

We also made a major upgrade to the navigation on the exchange, allowing users to simply click the “+” button to open a drop-down menu that lets them easily switch between spot and futures markets from within the same interface. And, because the price and volatility of ETH has increased so rapidly, we also adjusted the tick size on our ETHUSD market to give you an optimized trading experience and make liquidity mining easier.

What’s Still to Come in Q2 and Q3

We’re still keeping a few exciting updates up our sleeves (all will be revealed shortly) but we can share a few of the developments to look out for next month and beyond, including an affiliate program and a unified API that will provide us with the ability to emplement Digitex connectors for most popular bot trading solutions on the market. This will be music to the ears of all algo traders out there. And, by popular demand, we’ll also be adding the trading ladder interface to our spot markets, so you’ll be able to display multiple ladders from within the same interface.

More staking programs will be coming to Blockfarm all the time with other cryptocurrencies, as well as new token listings to our spot markets–so keep an eye out for many more trending tokens to come! We’ll also be tackling the issue of DGTX volatility when trading by making a change to our futures markets (more on that soon), and finally shipping you the user-configurable bots you’ve been hankering after. The mobile responsive version of the exchange will be completed in Q3 as well.

A Whole Lot More Besides

Many of our traders agree that the functionality of the exchange is exceptional in comparison to many other exchanges on the market. We’re proud to say that Digitex has proven itself robust throughout all of crypto’s volatility and very few exchanges can say the same.

We know that many of you are still waiting for our exchange listing on CoinMarketCap. We can tell you that we have just updated our system API to meet CMC’s listing requirements and have submitted everything they require. Now, we just have to wait for them to follow through.

We’re excited to finally have our futures and spot markets listed here as we know this will bring us a lot more visibility. And talking of visibility, we’re really stepping up the marketing now that we have relaunched as Digitex.io. We have been actively working with many influencer groups on a daily basis, and last month, our monthly visitors went up to 250K. We plan to consistently grow this number month by month, with around 200 signups daily.

Regarding DGTX tokenomics, we’re creating more ways to increase the demand for DGTX. We will be continually releasing more staking programs–not just on Blockfarm but other programs that are coming soon as well. We’re also introducing a program that will collect a lot of the DGTX off the market and constrict its circulating supply… we’re sure you’re going to love it.

Finally, let’s address the elephant in the room: the DGTX token price. The market has been brutal lately all round and we know that the current price of the DGTX token may look as if nothing is happening here. But, as you can see, this couldn’t be further from the truth. Our team is growing, our development has never been better, and we have a strong road map ahead. 

DGTX will have a major comeback and we thank all of you who’ve stayed with us for this crazy ride. We’ll finish the third quarter of this exceptional year stronger than ever with a sophisticated UI, more markets, more rewards programs, a solution for DGTX volatility and utility and a robust zero-fee exchange that lets you keep 100% of your profits.

Stake and unstake at any time and put your DGTX stash to better use earning an easy passive income.

We also made a major upgrade to the navigation on the exchange, allowing users to simply click the “+” button to open a drop-down menu that lets them easily switch between spot and futures markets from within the same interface. And, because the price and volatility of ETH has increased so rapidly, we also adjusted the tick size on our ETHUSD market to give you an optimized trading experience and make liquidity mining easier.

What’s Still to Come in Q2 and Q3

We’re still keeping a few exciting updates up our sleeves (all will be revealed shortly) but we can share a few of the developments to look out for next month and beyond, including an affiliate program and a unified API that will provide us with the ability to emplement Digitex connectors for most popular bot trading solutions on the market. This will be music to the ears of all algo traders out there. And, by popular demand, we’ll also be adding the trading ladder interface to our spot markets, so you’ll be able to display multiple ladders from within the same interface.

More staking programs will be coming to Blockfarm all the time with other cryptocurrencies, as well as new token listings to our spot markets–so keep an eye out for many more trending tokens to come! We’ll also be tackling the issue of DGTX volatility when trading by making a change to our futures markets (more on that soon), and finally shipping you the user-configurable bots you’ve been hankering after. The mobile responsive version of the exchange will be completed in Q3 as well.

A Whole Lot More Besides

Many of our traders agree that the functionality of the exchange is exceptional in comparison to many other exchanges on the market. We’re proud to say that Digitex has proven itself robust throughout all of crypto’s volatility and very few exchanges can say the same.

We know that many of you are still waiting for our exchange listing on CoinMarketCap. We can tell you that we have just updated our system API to meet CMC’s listing requirements and have submitted everything they require. Now, we just have to wait for them to follow through.

We’re excited to finally have our futures and spot markets listed here as we know this will bring us a lot more visibility. And talking of visibility, we’re really stepping up the marketing now that we have relaunched as Digitex.io. We have been actively working with many influencer groups on a daily basis, and last month, our monthly visitors went up to 250K. We plan to consistently grow this number month by month, with around 200 signups daily.

Regarding DGTX tokenomics, we’re creating more ways to increase the demand for DGTX. We will be continually releasing more staking programs–not just on Blockfarm but other programs that are coming soon as well. We’re also introducing a program that will collect a lot of the DGTX off the market and constrict its circulating supply… we’re sure you’re going to love it.

Finally, let’s address the elephant in the room: the DGTX token price. The market has been brutal lately all round and we know that the current price of the DGTX token may look as if nothing is happening here. But, as you can see, this couldn’t be further from the truth. Our team is growing, our development has never been better, and we have a strong road map ahead. 

DGTX will have a major comeback and we thank all of you who’ve stayed with us for this crazy ride. We’ll finish the third quarter of this exceptional year stronger than ever with a sophisticated UI, more markets, more rewards programs, a solution for DGTX volatility and utility and a robust zero-fee exchange that lets you keep 100% of your profits.

All The Ways to Use DGTX on Digitex.io + New Utilities Coming Soon 15

All The Ways to Use DGTX on Digitex.io + New Utilities Coming Soon

Digitex
• Digitex
April 20, 2021

If you’re already familiar with Digitex, you’ll know how unique we are in the business. As an exchange that’s built with our users’ interests in mind, there’s no other platform that lets futures traders execute aggressive short-term trading strategies to capitalize on even the smallest of price fluctuations. Because fee-charging exchanges render scalping strategies null and void, we facilitate commission-free trading through the use of the DGTX token. 

As the lifeblood of the exchange, DGTX is the ultimate utility token and has always been essential for trading on our platform. All traders must trade in DGTX, all account balances are denominated in DGTX, and all profits and losses are settled in our native token. And through the launch of Digitex.io, the DGTX token has been given even more use. Check out all the ways to use DGTX on our exchange–and get a sneak peek of some of our future plans to increase its utility.

  1. Trade on our Zero-fee Markets

If you’re a swing or scalp trader, there really are no better markets to trade than cryptocurrency–and there has never been a better time. With the insane volatility that bitcoin and ether are experiencing lately and as the volatile shocks shake weak hands out of the market, you can make money on Digitex.io by trading on our zero-free platform.

Whether you’re a seasoned futures trader, you’ve got a keen eye for buying the dips and selling the tops, or you simply like to buy and hold, you can now place all your trades commission free and withdraw all your funds without charge as well. 

We currently have two futures markets BTCUSD and ETHUSC with high liquidity and tight bid/ask spreads, and have added six spot trading pairs—DGTX/BTC, DGTX/ETH, ETH/BTC, BTC/USDC, ETH/USDC, DGTX/USDC. So, get started trading now and keep hold of all your profit.

  1. Earn Daily Rewards for Staking DGTX

If you’d rather put your DGTX to work for you to earn a passive income, you can earn daily DGTX rewards by staking your DGTX. Our monthly rewards are valued at $120,000 with up to 160% APY. Simply buy DGTX with zero fees through our Digitex Spot, visit Uniswap to create the DGTX/ETH pool token, connect your Metamask, and deposit your pool tokens into the DGTX Rewards wallet. It couldn’t be easier. Watch your rewards accumulate with one of the highest ROIs in the industry.

  1. Get Paid to Trade through Liquidity Mining 

Our Liquidity Mining program pays traders every minute for market-making on all our futures and spot markets–paying out over $8,000 in daily rewards. This means that, in addition to making trading gains, you can actually earn rewards every single minute.

In exchange for lending liquidity to Digitex’s markets and keeping our spread tight, we distribute up to 290 DGTX rewards proportionally every minute to those traders whose unmatched orders are the closest to the spot price at that time. This amounts to a massive 417,600 DGTX paid out daily!

What’s Coming Next?

Yesterday, we released a Q&A answering your most common questions about Digitex and our future plans. If you had a chance to check it out, you’ll know that we’re not promising launch dates anymore or trying to over-complicate plans as we move forward. But, we will be dropping regular releases every month that will all make the exchange more attractive to new users and existing ones as well.

We’re also working on ways to create more utility for the DGTX token. So, the next release you can expect to see is a staking program with DGTX that lets you earn other  cryptos on our exchange. We think this will be really popular based on community feedback and we’ll be offering some of the most favorable rates in the industry.

We’re also working really hard to roll out more futures markets later this year that are denominated in USDC and which can be traded with zero fees by staking DGTX to reduce or eliminate all trading commissions. This will add further utility to the DGTX token and we believe will attract the traders with bigger bankrolls that have so far been put off by the DGTX token’s volatility. No promises on timing for now, just know that we’re doing everything possible to make this work.

Digitex community, we’re happy to say that we’re on a good roll and our new development process is finally paying off. We appreciate all your positive and constructive feedback and we still have three quarters of the year to go… We’re going to make this happen.

Check Out the Improved Stop Loss Order + Other Updates at Digitex

Trading
• Digitex
March 25, 2021

Hey, Digitex community! It’s been a busy week so far and we’re continuing to listen to your feedback and make additional improvements to the exchange. Today, we’re pleased to let you know that we have upgraded our stop loss order. As some of you have been requesting this for a while now, we think you’re going to love it. Read on to find out what’s changed and for other updates at Digitex this week as well. 

As any seasoned trader knows, stop loss orders are essential for trading to minimize your losses and effectively manage your risk. With that in mind, we’ve made the Digitex stop loss order much more effective and easy to use in three simple steps:

  1. Press the Buy or Sell select button
  2. Type in the trigger price that will trigger the stop (always keep in mind that this number is based on the spot price, not the futures price)
  3. Type in the quantity
  4. Press the button “Set buy stop” or “Set sell stop”

Check Out the Improved Stop Loss Order + Other Updates at Digitex 17

What Is a Stop Loss Order and What Is it For?

For those of you who are new to trading, fear not, there are no stupid questions. A stop loss order is an order that you place to buy or sell automatically once the asset in question reaches a certain price. Effectively, this means that you can take a break from trading with the peace of mind that, in the event of high volatility or the market going against you, you are protected from suffering major losses. 

So, say, for example, that you decide you don’t want to hold your long position if Bitcoin (BTC) falls by more than $100. You simply set your stop loss order at $100 below the price you bought at. If BTC falls to this price, you will automatically sell, and curtail your losses rather than potentially suffering far greater losses.

Since it costs nothing to set up your stop loss, it allows you to trade more efficiently knowing that you’ll never be further out of pocket than your risk appetite can tolerate. It also means that you can keep your emotions out of trading. Especially when you’re new to the market, it’s easy to ride the hype and let emotions cloud your judgement. This almost always leads to delays triggering a sale, higher losses, or even liquidation.

We hope you like the improvements to the stop loss order on Digitex. If you have more requests for UX/UI upgrades and additions, please share them on any of our socials or contact our support, and we’ll review them with the internal team.

What Else Is New at Digitex?

If you’ve been trading on our platform, you’ve probably already noticed that the spreads have gotten a lot tighter, even during really volatile markets as the price of BTC and ETH have plummeted this week. This (the tight spreads, not the price tanks!) is thanks to our new Liquidity Mining program. We’re really pleased to see that its purpose is taking full effect because it means that your orders are more likely to get filled. Traded volumes on the exchange are much higher this week due to this — $128 million 24-hour traded volume on the BTC futures market, and $31 million on ETH futures market.

Another really great piece of news is that the number of active traders on the exchange has doubled this week alone–and continues to rise daily. Since this is only week one of releasing the first of many upgrades to come on Digitex, we’re taking this as a good sign of what’s to come and happy to be back on track.

Last but not least, we understand that a lot of you have questions about the internal team and workings of Digitex. We made some very important organizational and workflow changes at the start of this year that have allowed us to kick things off again at a much faster, smoother, and more efficient pace–and with a far higher standard of quality. 

This is our primary goal for the rest of the year ahead. As we approach the second quarter of 2021 already, we plan to bring you many more pleasant surprises and upgrades, so be sure to stay tuned.

We are thrilled to announce a brand-new listing for the DGTX token on major global trading platform KuCoin! Starting from July 3, traders can access DGTX paired with BTC and ETH. With our public launch only a matter of weeks away, the news couldn’t come at a better time! 

KuCoin is a global cryptocurrency exchange with a broad array of trading pairs available for its users. The company has been one of the fastest-growing in the crypto space, established in 2017 and now boasting more than five million users in over 200 countries. 

According to its website, one in every four crypto users in the world uses KuCoin. It has a solid reputation for security and customer service, along with excellent liquidity and a user-friendly interface. 

You Spoke, We Delivered! 

Speaking about the listing, Adam said: 

“Our community has been asking for a listing on a major exchange for a while now, and we’ve always been fans of the diversity of offering on KuCoin as well as its reach and popularity.”

He also thinks that getting listed on a global exchange spells excellent news in terms of ROI for our long-term DGTX HODLers, by providing even more depth of liquidity for our token: 

“As we head into the public launch of the Digitex Futures mainnet, being listed on KuCoin will allow us to get in front of even more traders and make buying DGTX even easier.” 

The KuCoin listing comes at the ideal time as we’re ramping up our mainnet onboarding ahead of launch. With thousands of traders using the exchange, demand for DGTX is set to skyrocket as the token utility comes into its own. Therefore, getting listed on a highly liquid global exchange is fantastic news for all our supporters, whether they’re traders, HODLers, or both.

June 22, 2020

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.”

May 22, 2020

 The last few weeks have flown by in such a whirlwind that we suddenly realized this week – nobody has yet even seen Adam fulfilling his vision of zero-fee crypto futures trading! So our final post of this week is a video from the man himself. Plus, news on our next mainnet group… Enjoy!

Adam opens the video by saying how happy he is with the mainnet performance – aside from a few minor bugs, we’ve had a very smooth start. 

He also expresses his gratitude to the mainnet trading group for their enthusiasm and participation, and confirms we’re bringing on board another 100 traders this week! At the time of publication, we can confirm that the 100 in question are already on board and trading away. If you’re one of our newcomers and wondering how all this works, then you should definitely watch this video! For everyone else, we’ll be providing an update from the latest group after the weekend. 

Adam is also impressed at the level of liquidity our traders and market makers are managing to achieve – imagine how it will be when we have thousands of traders on the ladder! 

He does a few trades, demonstrating how easy it is to literally play around on the ladder without the fear of losing out to trading fees. He quickly scalps out 160 DGTX and demonstrates how easy it is to get filled even with the liquidity of just 120 traders on the mainnet. 

Remember – not all of them are necessarily online at all times, so we really are expecting to have one of the most liquid exchanges out there! 

With an exchange like the DFE, traders have ultimate flexibility over their work/life balance. Adam used to trade on a betting exchange for a living, working out of internet cafes around the world. With a platform like the DFE, anyone can replicate that lifestyle, scalping out profits to buy the freedom they want. 

Adam finishes his trading activities 360 DGTX up in just a few minutes on the ladder. Not bad! 

News from DFE Development

Now to some updates from the DFE. Adam tells us how the API is currently a big focus for development activity. Also, we have four separate audits happening for the exchange itself, which (along with the home working) is part of the reason we’ve been slower to onboard that we perhaps would have liked. The audits are helping us locate minor fixes that need to happen to fine-tune the exchange to its best performance. We’ll be publishing the results of the audit as soon as we can. 

He then elaborates on the progress being made by the new team in Kyiv, including our CTO and Director of Exchange Operations on the leadership team. We’re making headway on new features, including ETH deposits and stop-loss. The fact that development is now coming along under the supervision of Alex and Yuliya is a testament to how well things are going with the new team in place. 

Adam teases an announcement coming up on Monday that will help us with our spot price calculations – watch this space for news! 

We have a few more small developments in the pipelines, such as being able to drag an unmatched order to a new price. These are minor changes, but they’re all designed to make the scalping process as clean and slick as possible. 

Similarly, users will soon be able to set hotkeys for defined quantities, meaning they can place orders with fewer mouse clicks. All these developments may seem small, but they add up to a stellar user experience on an addictive UI. 

Overall, the current version of the mainnet is very much the first version, although Adam is quick to praise SmartDec for the delivery of an outstanding trading platform. Everything we’re doing now is aiming to create the best possible iteration that the DFE can possibly become. 

There’s plenty more to come from Digitex, but in the meantime, thanks for sticking with us and making this journey to mainnet worthwhile!

Watch Adam Trading on the DFE Mainnet!

 The last few weeks have flown by in such a whirlwind that we suddenly realized this week – nobody has yet even seen Adam fulfilling his vision of zero-fee crypto futures trading! So our final post of this week is a video from the man himself. Plus, news on our next mainnet group… Enjoy!

Adam opens the video by saying how happy he is with the mainnet performance – aside from a few minor bugs, we’ve had a very smooth start. 

He also expresses his gratitude to the mainnet trading group for their enthusiasm and participation, and confirms we’re bringing on board another 100 traders this week! At the time of publication, we can confirm that the 100 in question are already on board and trading away. If you’re one of our newcomers and wondering how all this works, then you should definitely watch this video! For everyone else, we’ll be providing an update from the latest group after the weekend.

Digitex Futures Is Back on Track and Making Headlines  25

Digitex Futures Is Back on Track and Making Headlines

August 27, 2019

At Digitex Futures, we listen to our community. We know that we’ve set your expectations high and you expect nothing but the best. We over-promised and failed to deliver in the past and that’s why we’re doing things differently this time around. Instead of a full bells-and-whistles launch, we’re going to take the time we need to deliver the beast of a zero-fee futures exchange you deserve. And it seems that our more pragmatic and product-lead approach is paying off judging by the response in the press. Check out the headlines we’ve been making since the news came out.

Digitex Futures Launch Date News in the Press

OK, so we’ll admit it, we thought our community would be more excited about the launch news, but on reflection, we know that trust has to be earned. So, while it’s true that this is a public testnet and not a full-on mainnet launch just yet, we’re still extremely happy to be reaching this point with SmartDec so quickly. 
No great platform or game-changing software has ever been launched without a substantial period of testing prior and just as Adam said in his video on Friday, “the huge thing is for the public to be getting on there, for people to see that it’s real… with the delays that we’ve had in the past, a lot of people doubt that.”
So, while we’ll be opening with one market and in test mode while we continue to fortify the engines, you can be 100 percent sure that when we reach mainnet and add the additional markets and features, this will be a killer of an exchange. 

CityAM

While the crypto press was the first to pick up on the news, Digitex has been reaching wider audiences, too. London-based general news publication CityAM featured a “Spotlight” article covering our launch. The piece tells the story of Adam’s career starting as a London pit trader. It goes on to explain how his experiences in the betting markets led him to develop a ladder trading interface called BetTrader, and ultimately funnel everything he’d learned into the development of Digitex. 
CityAM is London’s most-read financial and business newspaper, and its website has two million unique visitors per month. Our feature is on page 18 of today’s edition

ValueWalk

Investment website ValueWalk published a full feature interview with Adam, with Digitex’s 100x leverage offering as the headline. In it, he describes how his idea for Digitex came to life once he discovered Ethereum and had the idea for the DGTX tokenomic model. Even though Adam had faith in his idea from the beginning, he talks about his disbelief when the Digitex Futures ICO sailed through its hard cap in just 17 minutes. 
Adam also discusses how he expects to see more exchange adopting a provably fair matching engine like the one Digitex will offer, as blockchain could potentially perform a regulatory role in ensuring that the exchange operates in a fair and transparent way. 

CryptoBriefing

Crypto Briefing was among the first to pick up the launch news with their article Digitex Announces Testnet Launch Date For Bitcoin Futures Exchange. This writeup mentions that the testnet will be “the first step to creating” the world’s first zero-commission cryptocurrency futures trading platform. It also talks a little about DGTX tokenomics and how we can offer zero-fee trading, concluding with the fact that development is now firmly on track with SmartDec leading the charge.

CryptoSlate

CryptoSlate also ran with the news shortly afterward, posting an article entitled Futures trading platform Digitex prepares for public testnet, announces release date. The text is very matter-of-fact and simply states that we will be launching the public testnet with one market, starting with BTC/USD perpetual swap contracts. The writer also mentions the impact that zero fees and non-custodial accounts will have on the cryptocurrency futures market, which is expanding all the time as Bakkt is slated for launch next month with its physically settled Bitcoin futures contracts.

CryptoDaily

Also noticing the launch announcement was UK-based CryptoDaily in their article Digitex Announces Testnet Launch Date. The writer talks about commission-free trading and how Digitex will remove the fees from all transactions. He also mentions that this is different from all other exchanges on the market:

“Digitex is different in that it will require users to trade exclusively with Digitex Futures (DGTX) tokens”

He also goes into some depth about the Digitex one-click trading ladder interface that will also shake up the way that people trade for good–as well as the fact that we are working with the prime researchers for Ethereum’s scalability solutions to bring traders non-custodial accounts as soon as the technology is ready.

Bitcoin.com

We also picked up a mention in Bitcoin.com’s piece about “The Changing Face of Cryptocurrency Trading in 2019.” The article discusses how the cryptocurrency markets are maturing, and starting to resemble the traditional financial markets in the breadth of different products. 
It goes on to talk about some of the major players in the crypto derivatives space, such as Bybit, Huobi, and of course, Digitex. Describing Digitex as “highly anticipated” the piece mentions our zero-fee model and innovative funding mechanism using the DGTX token

Coverage in International Press 

We’re also really excited that our efforts to reach out to foreign markets are starting to pay off. Not only did Digitex make the English-speaking press, but we also got dedicated write-ups in major international publications as well. 
Some of the key ones were China’s Jinse and Bihu, the number-one Japanese crypto publication Naver, South Korea’s ETNews, CEO Magazine, and Morning News, and Mexico-based AMBCrypto Spanish.

Wrapping It Up

We’re extremely grateful to all the press who covered the launch date news and we’ll be sharing all articles with you as they come in. 
What’s the key takeaway from all of this? As Adam stated simply in the video:

“The Digitex Futures exchange is launching!” We finally have a date to work toward and all the components of our team are coming together. We’re getting closer to making commission-free trading a reality and, no matter the current reaction, that’s epic in itself.

Got questions? Adam will be hosting a live AMA at 11 am EST (4 pm CET) on Wednesday to answer any doubts or concerns. Be sure to tune in and let him hear your thoughts about the latest news and respond to your comments. Thank you for all your continued support!
