Weekly Update: crypto education, trading bots, and Forbes article

It’s that time of the week again! No Brian, not for applying lotion to that ugly rash you have (please get that thing checked out).

It’s time for another weekly update!

Knowledge is power and since we want all of you to be well-informed crypto traders, we’ve launched a new series of articles. This will be our UpBots “educational series” aimed to fill your brains with crypto trading lessons that you won’t fall asleep reading.

The holiday season is approaching so make sure you’re on the “good” list this year. No, we’re not talking about Santa’s list…but rather our UBXT staking list! Every good staker on our list gets a special gift: access to our algo trading bots. So if you’re not a UBXT staker, no bot for you!

Our Co-Founder was also quoted in Forbes magazine regarding his take on the recent Bitcoin surge in price.

Crypto trading bots 101

Not sure what crypto exchange to use? Don’t know what a hardware wallet is? Still don’t know what Bitcoin is?…ok that last one is a bit elementary, but do you know how to calculate GAS fees?

To answer these questions and more, we’ll be publishing a weekly series of articles designed to help our readers level up their crypto game and have well-rounded knowledge of crypto fundamentals. Especially as they apply to using UpBots to it’s fullest.

Our lessons are jam-packed with crypto knowledge boosters that will have you on the edge of your seat.

Alright, these aren’t exactly the equivalent of an Arnold Schwarzenegger movie, but you’ll definitely be attentive without needing that sexy 25-year-old teacher from high school to lecture you (although that would be nice).

The first article in our educational series kicked off with Crypto Trading Bots 101. In this article, we swan dived, into what algo trading is and how crypto trading bots work to earn you profits (aka mad gainz).

You’ll learn about algo trading bots, why you should use them, and how they aren’t devising a plan to overthrow the human race.

Give it a read and tell us what you think! This will be the first in a long line of crypto educational content.

Algo bot access now for stakers ONLY!

He’s making a list…checking it twice

Gonna find out who’s staking or not…

Yes this is what I actually sing while dishing out access to our algo bots. If you haven’t heard the news yet, beta testing our trading bots is now over and all new algo bot access is exclusively for stakers.

If you want to get in and start seeing what our bots can really do, then see how you can still get your stake on, on FTX.

As for those who are currently staking, we’ve sent out emails containing your coupon code earlier this week. Be sure to check your inbox and spam folder in case you missed it.

If you still have not received the code it could be due to your FTX account not being connected to UpBots. So please be sure to do that, you can see how to in this article. For resolutions to any issues or answers to staking questions please ask in our Telegram channel (link below).

Abdel joins UpBots!

We got a fresh face here at UpBots! Welcome to the team Abdel!

Our team gained a new developer earlier this week and we are super excited to have him!

Platform Updates

UBXT wallet integration underway

The team is making great progress with the integration of an on-platform UBXT wallet in conjunction with our partners Arkane.

Having a UBXT wallet is a critical component of our platform ecosystem. It will put us closer to a hold program, profit pools, and enabling algo developers to earn perf fees, which in turn will mean more trading bots available in our market place.

With the integration processes kicking off we’ll be sure to keep you all updated on future developments.

Decentralized swaps in progress

Integration for swaps is also underway and progress is being made. Our first step into offering our users the ability to exchange tokens in a trustless, decentralized way will by via DEX AG. Quickly followed by Paraswap and 1inch.

You spoke, we listened!

We actively encourage our users to tell us what they love and hate about their experience and also to submit any ideas or suggestions they have. Below are a small example sample of fixes/tweaks we made based on early user feedback.

There were many others but this should serve as a tasty morsel…

Save FIAT settings

One piece of early user feedback was to have a user’s account able to lock in their favorite base fiat currency to more easily judge the value of their portfolio. We thought that was an easy fix that made oodles of sense.

While only a small thing, we hope it shows that we are listening and we value our users feedback. It’s not hyperbole, or lip service to say ever user on UpBots has a voice in shaping UpBots.

User login + verification improvements

A “remember me” checkbox has been added to our user login portal. This will allow for a more convenient login process for our users.

If you did not receive a verification email from us, the verify email notification will now include a link to request a new email if it’s expired.

Performance & design improvements

The UI/UX on Safari has been adjusted for more user friendliness when using this browser. The session timeout period has been increased by 3 hours, giving users the ability to stay logged in for an even longer period of time.

And now a meme from our community…
