It has been our honor to have your continuous support and empowerment during our exchanges development. After devoting hundreds of hours in security testing, research, and development the preparation of OceanEx 1.0 (Beta) has reached the sprint stage. In this enthusiasm, we would like to update the community with our latest progress.

Latest Roadmap

Recently, the major incident of GitHub has disrupted our development infrastructure, which caused discrepancies in our code base as well as infrastructure that is based on the GitHubs continuous integration. Besides, in order to enhance platform security level, we have decided to implement an extra layer of security audit by cooperating with external agency — SlowMist (a leading security audit company providing comprehensive security audit and defensive deployment services). We have also been putting extra effort into optimizing the trading experience and enforcing the platforms stability and security. Therefore, we decided to postpone the launch date from late October to November. We sincerely apologize for the delay and appreciate your understanding and patience. Please check the roadmap below for OceanEx’s updated schedule.

  • Exclusive VeChain Ecosystem Trading Pairs — OceanEx 1.0 (Beta) will initially provide the following trading pairs to our users: BTC/USDT, ETH/USDT, ETH/BTC, VET/USDT, VET/BTC, VET/ETH, VTHO/VET. After the exchange goes live, the platform token — OCE and other VeChain ecosystem projects will have their debuts in OceanEx in sequence. OceanEx will be the only exchange to provide VTHO/VET trading pair in the market for now. We believe it will be a crucial part in perfecting VeChain ecosystem in terms of a more efficient exchange of VTHO and VET in DAPPs.
