Looking back, looking ahead
Happy New Year DPP family! What an amazing and important year it’s been! Thank you all for your continued support, we wouldn’t be here without you — our investors, supporters and happy customers. Now that the boring formalities are out of the way, let’s get to what really matters!
A look back at a productive year
In many ways, 2018 was a meaningful and monumental year for Digital Assets Power Play. Just one year after the success of our ICO in September 2017, we commercially launched our first service — DPP DataStreams.
But the launch of DataStreams was only our final goal of the year. To successfully release the service, we first had to accomplish many other milestones that not only made DataStreams possible but also paved the foundation for the rest of our upcoming services and the future of the DPP platform. In order to accommodate the growth of the DPP platform, we made sure that the backbone of the platform was state-of-the-art. In 2018, we optimized the design of our system architecture by creating our own proprietary private cloud system, developing an open source microservice-based software architecture using RedHat OpenShift, and implementing the best DevOps techniques.
Currently, our private cloud network architecture is scalable up to 40 Gbps and can provide up to 300K IOPS with storage being expandable on-demand in terabytes. Deploying this private cloud system architecture ensures that all DPP services operate smoothly.
OpenShift allows us to orchestrate dozens of Docker microservices ensuring zero-downtime of our system. Should a hardware server fail, the microservices will automatically be moved to a working server.
We also implemented a fully integrated CRM within the system architecture. This allows for customer support and ticketing solutions as well as feedback collection. Additionally, this also provides 24/7 monitoring and alerting for all aspects of our system. This guarantees that all customers have a smooth and intuitive user experience, and a set of reliable crypto trading tools across all of our services.
2019 — The year of DPP Trader+
While our goals for 2018 were ambitious and extremely challenging at times, we’re happy enter into the New Year with everything checked off of our list. Now, our team is already working towards an even more successful 2019. This is the year of DPP Trader+ and the launch of our remaining services. While we remain focused on evolving and improving DPP DataStreams with additional features and quality-of-life improvements (click here for our latest feature update), we’re happy to report that the beta release of our flagship product, Trader+ is just around the corner. We can’t announce any exact release dates right now, but we are on schedule to launch the Trader+ beta within the first half of Q1 2019. Our devs are currently in the final stages of polishing the UI and remedying some technical obstacles before we’re ready to let you get your hands on it! Details on how to access the beta will be provided at a later date. As we approach launch, we’ll be posting more blogs, video demos, live streams, tutorials and more — covering everything you need to know about the beta on our journey towards the commercial launch of Trader+. Oh, and keep your eyes peeled on our social media channels over the next few weeks, we might have something to show you very soon!
In parallel, we’re hard at work to bring you DPP Historical within Q1 2019 as well. As mentioned during our roadmap reveal last year, Historical will provide users with historical data from 100+ crypto exchanges, covering trades and order book data on demand. It will also be integrated directly into Trader+ where users will have quick and easy access for backtesting their created algo strategies.
A big thank you once again for all your support during 2018 and beyond. We look forward to an even more successful year filled with monumental milestones as our journey towards taking control of the crypto market continues!
