Update 07/11/2018: Though Radex is still live for historical purposes, the information below is outdated. We have since released a new decentralized exchange Saturn Network with many upgrades like wallet to wallet trading in one transaction or token self-listing, this required a new smart contract & therefore we recommend you no longer use Radex and migrate over to the new exchange.
I know you have been highly anticipating the release of Radex's API and the added functionality it will bring to our exchange. I took the chance yesterday to catch up with our development team and find out exactly where we stand. And it was great news! Currently, our Radex API is in its BETA stage, meaning we have been successfully parsing data from the blockchain.
It still needs to go through some rigorous testing in our backend before it can be released but the first results have been very promising. To ensure nothing goes wrong, we have decided that the best way forward would be to roll out the API in several stages. At the moment the most likely scenario would be the following:
- Allow users to view the order book without MetaMask.
- Set up the mobile functionality so you can use Radex on mobile with Cipher or TrustWallet.
We will monitor the load and benchmark our API's performance at every step of the way. To ensure that it will be quick enough to provide the real-time trading without coming across any performance issues.
Once we are confident it will be robust enough to deal with high trading volumes, then we will move on to the following:
- Set up Radex Explorer so you can easily view market data and past transactions.
- Integrate the API completely into Radex's architecture to allow one-click trading.
Eventually, further down the line, we will be making the API opensource so third-party developers can use it for trading bots or website widgets.
That's all for now folks! Just want to assure you that development is moving along as intended, and we will be announcing some updates to our pre-sale in the coming days. So stay tuned!
