Those of you that have been following the updates from the team at Perpetual Protocol will know about the recent introduction of the Grants Program.
We are constantly striving to make apex.win the best platform for our users. As such, we have applied for a grant to address some of the feedback that you guys have been giving us.
Namely, we have been wanting to improve the UI on the website and to make the trading experience easier and seamless.
Today, we are excited to share some of the things that we have been working on:
Complete UI overhaul
Our current UI is functional, but can be difficult to use. We have therefore made the decision to re-write a significant portion of the front-end from scratch. Our current prototype is below, let us know what you think of it!
Accessing perp.exchange positions
Our users have expressed frustration about needing to alternate between perp.exchange and apex.win to open positions with their regular address and their apex wallet. We have decided to streamline this to allow users to access both accounts using the apex.win interface.
Please note: It will not be possible to create advanced orders via perp.exchange
Some users have found it difficult dealing with the ERC20 allowances to interact with apex smart contracts. We are therefore streamlining this into the process for creating orders. Users will now need to sign two transactions if they haven’t given prior approval. This should replicate the similar experience with other dapps.
We have already created a CSV generator tool to allow users to download their trade history and summary of funding payments in CSV format. We will be incorporating this tool into our website to allow users to get further information about their accounts.
We are happy with the current designs for the UI and are now focusing on the development of the front-end. We are hoping to progress to our initial internal testing within the next few weeks. We would then be able to open up for users to test.
Concurrently, we are also working on setting up our back-end architecture to improve the speed and responsiveness of the website.
Until next time,
