Similar to other cryptocurrency companies, exchanges need to keep evolving. In the case of Bitfinex, the company is planning to launch their third major trading platform. Late last year, they introduced Ethfinex for Ethereum-oriented trading. It now sees they will provide a decentralized trading platform on the EOS.IO platform. As such, EOSfinex is born, a brand new trading platform for everyone to enjoy. It will be quite interesting to see what the future holds for this new platform.
EOSfinex is the first high-performance decentralized exchange platform built on top of EOS technology. This will help Bitfinex push the boundaries of the cryptocurrency market and its trading aspects. By focusing primarily on scalability and speed, this new platform will certainly be appealing to a lot of users. It is still a trustless and transparent platform capable of providing an on-chain experience first and foremost. There is a growing demand for decentralized exchange experiences, that much is evident.
EOSfinex Offers a Decentralized Exchange Experience
Bitfinex has been working on implementing new protocol-level technologies first and foremost. Such tools need to be able to handle high volume and bring out the best of blockchain technology. As such, the Bitfinex team focuses on EOS as of right now, as the project has the most merit in their opinion. Processing tens of thousands of transactions per second will still be challenging. At the same time, this technology may offer low fees and fast confirmation times. That is, assuming the real-world test of this technology lives up to the expectations.
Bitfinex CEO J.L. van der Velde comments as follows:
“We are excited to leverage EOS.io to further advance the field of high performance and trustless on-chain exchange. Block.one continues to display an unwavering dedication to improving blockchain scalability through the EOS.IO platform and it is our hope that this collaboration will allow significant advancement for all decentralized exchange.”
For now, we will have to wait and see when EOSfinex will go live. As of right now, there is no official ETA or deadline for this venture. If EOSFinex is even remotely as successful as Bitfinex, things will get interesting for the cryptocurrency industry as a whole. With more decentralized exchange solutions, the need for centralized trading platforms will eventually disappear. That can only be considered to be a positive trend for this decentralized industry.
