Latest news and updates from ALPEX, a leader in digital asset trading!

Welcome to ALPEX newsletter, your resource for the latest important updates from the leader in digital asset and derivatives trading!

ALPEX is dedicated to providing the world’s most secure, stable and reliable digital asset trading platform, built around currency trading, over-the-counter (OTC) trading, perpetual contract trading, financial derivatives, and much more. ALPEX is the preferred digital asset trading platform for millions of users worldwide and the first choice for both professional and first-time traders in over 150 countries.

Weekly Overview:
As we emerge from the pandemic that impacted all of us, the world is changing quickly. We witnessed two years of digital transformation in just two months during the early stages of the pandemic. Consequently, a realization of the real impact of the digital transformation on society and the economy has led to the adoption of cryptocurrencies. As El Salvador adopted bitcoin as legal tender this week, it was met with many problems, including angry protests by distrustful citizens, technical difficulties, and a drop in the value of the currency. It was a bumpy start for the bold experiment when President Nayib Bukele complained that the government-backed app was unavailable on various internet platforms, including Apple and Huawei.

Coinbase Global has been threatened with a Wells notice from the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), if it implements plans to offer a crypto lending program that will allow users to earn interest on crypto assets. Paul Grewal, the company’s chief legal officer, explained that this is “an official notice that it intends to sue a company.” The delay will probably lead to a delay in Coinbase’s ‘Lend’ launch until at least October.

In other news, a blockchain analytics startup, Cipher Trace, has been acquired by Master Card as part of its ongoing commitment to cryptocurrencies. The company provides tools and solutions to prevent illicit cryptocurrency transactions. Financial transaction industries will undergo a paradigm shift as a result of cryptocurrencies. A blockchain-based system’s speed, agility, and security will revolutionize payments. As a result, all major companies including Visa, Master Card, Western Union, and PayPal Holdings want to remain competitive and grow with it.

This week, a law legalizing cryptocurrencies and regulating virtual assets was passed by the Ukrainian parliament on September 8. As a result, it became the fifth country in the world to pass a law legalizing and regulating cryptocurrency. The role, future prospects, and scope of demand for cryptocurrency has gradually become clear to governments around the world. The draft law to legalize cryptocurrencies was approved by 276 legislators in Ukraine. The National Bank of Ukraine, Ukraine’s Ministry of Digital Transformation, and the National Securities Commission serve as the main regulators of the virtual assets market under Ukrainian law.

Technical Summary:
Key developments this week included:

1. Added a credential uploading module for fiat currency transactions.

2. Data analysis and statistics on currency transactions.

3. Added an internal deposit record module to the front end.

4. Display the information for the bank card in the mobile app upon setting the payment method for fiat currency transactions.

5. On the market page, the transaction volume is uniformly displayed as USDT, and the unit of measurement is “M”.

1. Add the full-position mode to contract transactions.

2. Implement multiple audit functions for hot wallet withdrawals of foreign currencies.

3. Add the FIX currency exchange transaction mode.

Marketing Summary:

In marketing news: The governance tokens have been officially distributed by DYDX. With DYDX, market makers, long-short traders and market makers play a three-way game that differs a bit from that of Uniswap. A decentralized derivatives agreement, DYDX, is currently the only one able to match the trades of hundreds of millions of dollars.

It was a week when the Bitcoin giants screamed HODL. Bitcoin led the downward trend this week, and the global crypto market’s value fell to $1.98 trillion US dollars in the evening of September 7 from 2 trillion. Moreover, Ethereum TVL recently crossed over 180 billion U.S. dollars, which indicates that the cryptocurrency market has remained largely unchanged.

In an update from the marketing department, the ALPEX team is engaging in the planning of the Expo 2020 participation process. We have prepared many gifts pertaining to this. Our team is looking forward to meeting users at the site.

Further, new content ideas are developed by the ALPEX team for social media publishing. Innovative visual experiences are one of our goals and we strive to deliver unique experiences to our customers. Lastly, APLEX articles were published on the Chinese blockchain-based news platform Mars Finance.
