Robert Auxt
CEO

Negative Trading Fees

As mentioned in our article as a market maker you can earn fees that would otherwise be earned by the exchange itself. Essentially, fees from takers are being split between the exchange and the maker so in the result instead of paying fees for trading you will be earning fees (e.g. negative fees).

Cryptodiffer Community

Margined, perpetual swap, Futures  is a goose that lays golden eggs. The race to take the No. 1 position on Margin among the major exchanges is fierce. Good news for Blockchain every day. So in your opinion. Will Eterbase follow this race in the future?

CEO

We might be exploring derivatives next year if we will be able to get a full clearance for it from the regualtor.

 

Cryptodiffer Community

Treasury Gateway Service is unique concept of cooperation between ETERBASE and our general pazment provider and third party/project.

So, all users of project can obtain IBAN EUR account e.g.

” The increase in cryptocurrency exchanges also resulted in a relative rise in network hacking. Many exchanges, thus far, have fallen victim to hacked networks, which have resulted in user data being compromised. In the worst cases, some exchanges have suffered massive losses as a result of the hacks.” As an investor, taking risk is your principle and winning the risk is your goal.

We dont plan to implement such chain for security reasons, we do have plans to lunch our blockchain but main focus is in the area of DEFI applications, ( DAG based blockchains or other very fast and transactions fee friendly system )

Cryptodiffer Community

Q1. For a new exchange the most obvious problem is adoption & liquidity, How Eterbase is handling these problems?

Q2. Eterbase says that it deploys AI & other security measures for securing users data. But still AI is autonomous. Doesn’t it create any problem in long-term in your opinion?

Robert Auxt
CEO

Q1: We are taling to several funds to provide liquidity and we will make sure that liquidity for main EUR pairs will be improving a lot.

 Q2: AI is in semi-autonomous regime and is capable to learn and improve in terms of detecting potential risks. If managed correctly, it should really enhance and streamline some mundane security processes.

Cryptodiffer Community

Could you explain the following terms for those new to Eterbase? Negative trading fees ? OEO?

Tomas Pristac
CBDO

As most of people are familiar with terms such as ICO and IEO we are introducing a simplified version of IEO for projects that have had limited exposure, are not listed on liquid market or want to rise additional funds via exchange without complicated process like ICO/IEO. So what is OEO? In simple terms OEO stands for Order Book Exchange Offering, which means that tokens/coins are sold directly via order book at pre-selected tiers divided by price and quantity of assets sold. Time span for transactions is short and remaining/unsold supply is burnt after conducting OEO.
