The promise of EOS

Technically there has simply not been a framework available with the necessary fee structure and performance requirements for a fully on-chain exchange until EOS.

The eosfinex Architecture

Eosfinex is the industry’s first fully on-chain, fully transparent and scalable exchange ecosystem built on EOS software.

  1. Main chain gateway contract: Custody for tokens whilst on sidechain.
  2. Side chain gateway contract: Issues and burns sidechain tokens.
  3. Sidechain network: Uses the EOX system token.
  4. Nodeos plugin: Supports connecting via Bitfinex V2 WebSocket protocol.
  5. User Interface: Bitfinex style UI with support for signing transactions.
  6. API client library: Polymorphic library to interact with the WebSocket gateway from the browser and server. Supports major EOS auth mechanisms like Scatter and hardware wallets.
  1. Increasing the number of sidechain BPs and/or launching on the EOS mainnet with the release of EOS support for asynchronous block confirmations (BFT-DPOS).
  2. Adding margin capabilities to eosfinex.
