SynFutures V2 Testnet Updates: Coin-margined Futures, Dark/Light Mode & More

V2.1 brings several new features and UI enhancements, including Coin-margined Futures and dark/light mode options.

In the weeks since we introduced the SynFutures V2 testnet and opened up testing to everyone, we’ve been working hard to address our community’s feedback while launching product and platform upgrades.

With the release of V2.1, we’re excited to share the latest roundup of updates. Starting today, these enhancements will be available on testnet.

V2.1 Key Upgrades

Coin-margined Futures

As outlined in the SynFutures V2 whitepaper, one of the major updates to V2 is the addition of Coin-margined Futures.

Now available for testing, Coin-margined Futures allows all native network tokens with a large community base, including coin-coin pairs and coin-USD stablecoin inverted pairs, to be used as margin on each deployed network.

The goal of the feature is to allow LPs to provide liquidity with their preferred store of value while traders can use their preferred token as collateral.

Oracle Updates

The newest version of the testnet, V2.1, deploys DEXs as oracles for some pairs. This is in addition to oracle provider Chainlink, which was available in V2.0.

All pairs that have DEXs deployed as oracles have the [] icon under the pair name.
