Highlights in the last development sprint

Major portions of v2 code have undergone an initial audit and things are looking good. Read on for more details!

🛢 Backend

  • 📈 Candle Chart Indexer Modification for v2
    The candle chart indexer has been upgraded to support v2 and the frontend team has taken over to integrate it with our new UI (check to-dos in this sprint to learn more).

  • 🐝 Keeper Modification for V2
    The team keeper bot was upgraded to support v2. Specifically, it’ll trigger funding payments and liquidate undercollateralized positions like it’s been doing for v1, as well as cancel orders, which is implemented to mitigate liquidation risks for makers.

To-dos in this development sprint

📑 Smart Contracts

  • Building and Researching V2 (🏁 finish line in sight!)
    All of the functions for v2 are now done. In this sprint, we’ll refactor the code for Clearing House, fix the bugs reported by the Consensys Audit, and prepare for the next audit in the coming weeks from ABDK, the auditor for Uniswap v3.

🛢 Backend

  • Subgraph Support for V2 (🏁 finish line in sight!)
    We’ve implemented the interfaces for most events from our smart contracts on our subgraph, and we’ll finish the rest in this sprint. 

  • Prepare Test Scripts
    In this sprint, we’ll work on test scripts, which will run several test cases before each deployment to test that the system is working properly.

💻 Web

  • Web UI for both Mobile and Desktop (🏁 finish line in sight!)
    Almost all of the trader-facing functions for both desktop and mobile versions are done. We’ll integrate a basic TradingView chart into the site in this sprint and also fix some minor issues. If you can’t wait and want to trade on the go now, you can use lite mode or trade.apex.win instead (note apex.win uses Perpetual Protocol on the back-end, but positions will not show across perp.exchange and apex.win).

🤝 Partnership/Marketing

  • Referral Program
    Final testing has been completed so the new referral system and dashboard will be released this sprint! This means we’ll be able to start onboarding more referral partners and we have some big names waiting to come on board. Stay tuned.

  • V2 Marketing
    We have a series of v2-related marketing projects ongoing and things are getting exciting.
