Real Time Development Updates

November 12th

This month will bring about a significant number of changes to the terminal, including depositless trading, fiat on/off ramp, additional liquidity sources and pairs, preparing for Orion Bridge, and more. Alongside continued development updates and AMAs, we are moving towards ‘real time’ updates of development in order to communicate progress and changes as they occur, and as effectively and frequently as possible.

 

Depositless Trading: VIP NFT holders now have access to depositless trading for final testing ahead of public deployment.

Fiat On/Off Ramp Aggregator: Once depositless trading has been publicly released, a fiat on/off ramp aggregator will be deployed on Orion Terminal - aggregating every major fiat gateway. This is currently in the final stages of UI optimization before testing and roll out.

Single Network View: Shortly after the release of depositless trading and fiat on/offramp, the ‘single network view’ of the terminal will be released, enabling one single trading view for assets and pools on existing and new chains. Users will only need to connect their wallet once and don’t need to reconnect when changing chains.

Removal of ORN from circulation: Next week, the team will release details on the first stage of permanently removing ORN from circulation to reduce supply.

Orion Atomic Swap Bridge: The back end for Orion’s atomic swap bridge has been built, with UI developments underway ahead of launch.

Additional liquidity sources: Further progress made with the smart contracts to more effectively onboard new sources of liquidity and assets.

Bug fixes: Various low level bug fixes have been improved across the Terminal, including:

  • Fixed early bugs with new depositless trading
  • Fixed issues on backend to enable smoother operation
  • Order History bug fixes
  • Bug improvement fixes across the backend
  • Improved monitoring
  • Technical support has moved to full Help Desk format: widget and/or support bot for Telegram

Upcoming UI improvements

  • ORN and native network balances will be displayed in the header
  • Order History will be changed to improve the layout
  • Settled amount value added
  • Columns reorganized

November 1st

This next month will bring about a significant number of changes to the terminal, including depositless trading, fiat on/off ramp, additional liquidity sources and pairs, preparing for Orion Bridge, and more. Alongside continued development updates and AMAs, we are moving towards ‘real time’ updates of development in order to communicate progress and changes as they occur, and as effectively and frequently as possible.

The development team has just deployed the following improvements to Orion Terminal:

Fee calculation and display:

  • Fee calculation on the backend has been optimized to resolve any occasional anomalies
  • As well as adding other assets to be used as fees beyond ORN (USDT, BNB, ETH), the development team have made several changes for 'fee breakdown':
    • Greater transparency on fee breakdown: 'total fee’ has now been added below the ‘fee dropdown’ - displaying the network fee, fee asset balance, and total fee for a trade
    • Removal of ‘fee dropdown’ when trades are routed via Orion Pool: orders via Orion Pool (vs Orion Aggregator) are executed directly on the exchange contract and therefore have a 0.3% Orion fee priced in to the trade

Bug fixes: 

  • Various low level bug fixes have been improved across the Terminal, including:
    • Fixed pair list display after network change
    • Raising gas limits on certain tokens with unique smart contract settings (e.g. CUMMIES) to address issues around trading and withdrawal 
    • Various technical fixes pertaining to data feeds

UX / UI improvements:

  • Reward periods: addition and automated monitoring of ‘reward period finish’ column within the Farming tab to provide more clarity to LPs over reward cycles
  • URL routing: changes have been made to the Pool pages to give each section its own URL path (such as pools, governance, etc) for improved navigation
  • Clearer display of wallet / chain connection ahead of upcoming changes, including transparent network, Orion Bridge, and more



What’s next?

In our recent Development AMA, Lead Backend Engineer Boris Vanin shared some of the important changes already implemented and what’s next for the development team, including the following updates planned for the coming weeks:

Depositless trading:
- Now live in mainnet staging environment
- VIP NFT holders will be briefly testing this in the next few days before public deployment

Fiat on/off ramp:
- A fiat on/off ramp is currently being integrated to enable access to almost all major fiat gateways directly on Orion Terminal

Single trading list / transparent network feature:
- One single trading view for assets and pools on existing and new chains
- Users will only need to connect their wallet once and don’t need to reconnect when changing chains
- This ‘transparent network feature’ is a key development prior to the launch of Orion Bridge in order to create a seamless cross-chain experience

Orion Aggregator V2:
- Faster settlement, fewer errors, faster reporting

Additional liquidity sources
- Integration of new sources of liquidity and pairs

 

Alongside the above, there's even more in the works as shared in last week's Development AMA.
