Highlights in the last development sprint
The visual how-to intro on perp.exchange for first-time visitors is finished. Now this task is in the backlog waiting for the frontend team to pick it up.
📑 Smart Contracts
Perpetual Protocol Command-line Tool (Read/write-mode)
After this update, you can interact with Perpetual Protocol’s smart contracts using just command-line software. 🤓
We launched MKR perpetual market on 5/14.
Workshop Video Release
In our first workshop, we showed you how you can use perpetual contracts to profit from funding payments, hedge your yield farming risks, and escape the lock-up period. The videos were reshot and now released on our YouTube channel.
Listed on CoinMarketCap
Perpetual Protocol is now on CoinMarketCap’s derivative page and ranked no.22 along with all CEXs (only slightly below Bitfinex and bitFlyer!).
Purchase dHEDGE dTOP Index
We purchased $200,000 worth of dTOP Index from the treasury in anticipation of future partnership activities with dHedge.
To-dos in this development sprint
Usability Testing (🚧still work in progress!)
We’re still conducting usability tests to know more about users’ feedback on our latest design overhaul. Want to help with testing? Contact us on Discord or Twitter!
Mobile Web UI (🚧 still work in progress!)
Our mobile web interface is still WIP but the Lite Mode described below will also be usable via mobile 👇
Lite Mode for perp.exchange (🏁 finish line in sight!)
To make perp.exchange more beginner-friendly, we’ve developed a lite version for users who are more accustomed to a Uniswap style trading experience. This UI will be open-sourced in a few weeks.
Gas-free USDC deposits (🏁 finish line in sight!)
Due to unexpected technical difficulties, we didn’t release this feature in the previous sprint. But we’re confident that within this sprint, users will be able to deposit USDC without paying any gas fees.
