Weekly Update #5

What’s Been Done

  • Over the past weeks, fees on the Chia Blockchain seems to be here to stay. To allow our users get their transactions on chain quicker, we now provide users with the ability to supply fee by adding to the supplied Chia amount or removing from the requested Chia amount in their offers. The suggested fee is hinted on the pop-up window for order book items, and is currently 0.0001 XCH. We chose this number since it not only suffices to be on top of the mempool, but is miniscule (7 cents USD at the time of writing) for users. In the future, we plan to implement more accurate fee estimators to give better fee hints and save you some bucks.

HOW IS IT DONE?

With Chia offers, Hashgreen is able to redirect the provided fees into a temporary address, then we generate a SpendBundle on the fly to spend the extra amounts as fee. This SpendBundle is then aggregated with the user offers before we push it to the Chia Blockchain.

  • We made it easier for users to submit your orders! Simply copy the amounts provided in the pop-up panel when you hover on the offers you want to match against with the copy button. You can also paste your offer file string directly on the web interface.

  • Many partners are starting to integrate our Market Statistics API into their platforms. The previous generation were slow and bulky, taking nearly 30 seconds to complete a call. We have optimized it to return the results in under half a second.
  • New market selection menu is now available at UAT interface. If you want the UAT interface to connect with mainnet, head to UAT settings and toggle on PROD.
  • We fixed many bugs on the frontend interface, including incorrect display of order status (sometimes it shows “Confirming undefined”), and user token retrieval errors.

What’s Rolling

  • The smart coin team is coding up the first version of AMM coin driver for an MVP AMM protocol. As time goes on, we will gradually implement more standard functionalities in current AMMs!
