The weekly development update series will inform users about progress made on user-facing aspects of CryptoBridge.

Support

Progress continues on the reduction of support tickets currently open. Concurrently, development on the user-facing support wizard (self-help) tools has resumed. Once these are released into production, users will find less need to consult directly with support agents in Discord, freeing them up to keep the ticket backlog near or at zero. This will also introduce an opportunity for users to begin working toward higher degree of understanding and self-efficacy. We are especially excited as these new features align with our upcoming educational efforts.

 

Stability

Research into locating the most cost-effective methods to increase our nodes has been underway for a couple of weeks now. Once we have a solution, users will notice improved connectivity while on our side this expense will have been significantly reduced, freeing up resources for more exciting developments.

 

Volume & Liquidity

Preliminary integration of the DEXBot application has begun as we explore its use in automated market making. The discussion around strategy and in customizing the code for maximum utility is ongoing with the @dexbot_team, and all are welcome to join the brainstorming and troubleshooting process on our Discord. We believe that utilizing this free application (a worker proposal designed to improve market liquidity throughout the BitShares ecosystem) in conjunction with the Market Maker Program will be appealing to projects and individuals in their communities alike.

 

Ethereum

Our developers have been preparing for the upcoming Constantinople hard fork to prevent any undue trading disruption on the CryptoBridge ETH markets. The Parity wallet has already been updated and all relevant technical elements are under close scrutiny as we approach the time of the fork, which has been delayed at the last moment. We will continue to monitor the updated schedule and market activity to ensure we take appropriate action.

 

Thank you for taking the time to follow our progress. Weekly development updates can be expected on each Wednesday. Happy trading!
