Augur Weekly Report — November 28th

Development Update:

This week, the engineering team has been focused on readying a minor release that will include the following:

  • Feature to factor in fees when displaying potential profit/loss on the trading order form
  • Feature to filter markets on market list page by estimated fee. (By default, this will only show markets where the estimated fee is < 5%.)
  • Fix for bug causing Net Quantity not displaying correctly in My Positions on trading page
  • Fix for issue preventing transactions from being sent when user is connected via Ledger and MetaMask is enabled

In addition to this, they are continuing to explore ways to speed up and improve the initial syncing process for v2. The design team is continuing work on redesigning the trading page and sidebar, and improving the UX for forking and adding categories/tags when creating a new market.
