Dear Liquidity Community,
In the joyful festival atmosphere here comes our Christmas present for you: our newsletter #15. This is the last one before we cross the bridge into 2020, which marks the conclusion of another exciting and productive year. As usual, we have been busy for the past few weeks, finalising the upcoming client version 2 of the NOCUST server, improving the performance and stability of TEX and finishing the new UI for Liquidity Explorer.
To make sure we are always in contact with our community, we participated in Techfuze Summit in Cairo. It was a fantastic opportunity for us to meet our community members in Egypt for the first time, answer queries and further promote Liquidity Network.
Our development team has been tirelessly working to improve our backend infrastructure. Fixing bugs and improving the user experience for both developers and our users.
New NOCUST Python Library
We have started to work on and made steady progress in rewriting the client library in Python. Soon you will be able to write a Liquidity Network Dapp in Python. The library will feature a full TEX support for your trading bots and others.
We have also been working on improving our exchange engine TEX and adding more features. Now you can observe the trading volume for the last 24 hours and check the highest and lowest trading prices during that period. We also added order book decimal choices that allow users to change the number of decimals shown. We made some style fixes to the transaction history by adjusting the scientific annotation numbers and making them human-friendly.
We took significant steps in further improving the documentation of our smart contracts. We added a new page on our documentation website. On this page, we documented all public methods of the NOCUST smart-contracts. Check it here. Reminder: our smart-contracts are open source and freely available here.
Furthermore, we are currently working on the server protocol documentation. You can expect to see it available very soon.
We have been tweaking the end-point of the upcoming version 2 of the NOCUST server API to make it more clear and simple to use. We did a lot of backend work such as cloud migration and improvements to our development setup. We added support for Sell-Buy, Buy-Sell and Buy-Buy orders, a new caching layer for off-chain data to speed up fetching of historic data, as well as auto-withdrawal confirmation. There will be no need to make an additional on-chain transaction after the withdrawal clearing period.
We also fixed some major vulnerabilities on the server:
- Fixed rounding issues that were causing inaccurate accounting.
- Fixed a bug that caused some down-time on the order-book endpoint with large number divisions.
- Fixed a server bug that was preventing the proper credit of funds to the user, if the deposit happened during the last block of an EON. This will prevent any potential attack vectors from taking down the hub.
Our developers worked hard to finish updating the new UI for the Liquidity Explorer. We added features such as QR code scanner and on-chain balances. It’s now available to see the latest transactions with their data as well as the difference between transactions and swaps.
We have also expanded the search options. The search is now possible by wallet or token address as well as transaction ID and EON number.
Finally, we added a fourth hub called XCHF to the already-existing hubs (Mainnet, Limbo and Rinkeby).
The new explorer is available here.
Events, Conferences and Community
We participated at Techfuze in Cairo, Egypt (13 -14th December). Since it was our first attendance at a conference in Egypt, we were very excited to meet with our community there. We organised a competition on our Facebook page to give away 10 free invitations for the summit.
In the photos you can see our team members by our display booth, striving to inform and inspire. We received keen interest from many people, who wanted to learn more about Liquidity Network.
On 14th December we gave a talk on “scalable decentralized finance” which received positive feedback.
