A storm has hit the investment market which we are not going to recover from. Crypto investment is that storm. With strict capital controls in place by most countries to control the flow of money and charge high taxes, cryptocurrency gained usage in circumventing capital controls and taxes, leading to an increase in demand. Cryptocurrency has been able to present an easy to use digital alternative to fiat currencies. Offering frictionless transactions and inflation control, investors have been prudent enough to add these currencies in their diversified portfolios as an asset, as the size of the market does not represent a systemic risk. Cryptocurrency employs the use of cryptography that assures high-security processes and verifies transactions personal to each user. Hence, counterfeiting and anonymous transactions are impossible to achieve.
While this revolution is gaining wide acceptance, The XERA exchange, which is going to transform the way cryptocurrencies are traded, offering traders and investors a seamlessly integrated solution for their cryptocurrency investing has arrived.
"Well, we all know cryptocurrency trading is a type of trading that involves exchanging one cryptocurrency for another, buying and selling coins, and exchanging fiat money into crypto. It bears some similarities to foreign exchange (forex), where fiat currencies from across the globe are traded 24 hours a day.
In addition, Cryptocurrency, also known as digital assets, trading is the buying, selling or holding of cryptocurrencies such a Bitcoin (XBT), Ethereum (ETH), Litecoin (LTC) amongst others, with the aim of generating a profit from short, medium or long term fluctuations in their prices."
With that being said, XERA will be a fully integrated cryptocurrency trading exchange that resolves the key issues and challenges that traders are facing with current exchanges.
But before we go any further, please check out this video presentation to get even more acquainted
Now that I have your attention, let’s get right to it.
What exactly is XERA?
The XERA exchange is going to transform the way cryptocurrencies are traded, offering traders and investors a seamlessly integrated solution for their cryptocurrency investing.
XERA challenges traders facing with cryptocurrency exchange platforms while providing an integrated solution for traders and investors who are interested in the cryptocurrency market. XERA will provide the professional tools and resources that traders require for precise trade execution. XERA is currently establishing partnerships with professionals from various industries to assist in the development of a robust trading platform.
Liquidity Improving liquidity on crypto trading platforms is one way to encourage mainstream adoption. To make it one of the priority solutions, we will dedicate 10% share from profit generated from trading fee and put that in a reserve liquidity pool. This will ensure that liquidity remains healthy all the time.
Highly Secure Xera experienced security team is backed by a rigorous set of audits and the latest innovations in cybersecurity. Not only are we committed to handling your crypto and fiat, but also ensure that personally identifiable information (PII) should be completely secure from theft and unapproved accessibility
Lightning Fast Our exchange is going to be on one of the fastest engines with super low latency. Have a look at our POC system in the “ALPHA TESTING” section. We were able to sustain a 2.5 Mtps throughput and super low latency and will keep on working to enhance it and create an HFT (High-performance trading) system with increased scalability
Auto-trading Xera exchange allows traders to implement their trading strategies via direct coding methods which will automatically execute their trades based on user implemented logic. Users will have access to all market data and technical indicators via the scripting language, so traders can quickly implement and auto-execute their favorite trading strategies
The Problems and The Solutions Offered
Limited order types
XERA's multiple order types will provide a high level of flexibility for traders.
Lack of auto-trading tools, unlike traditional platforms
XERA will have highly customized toolset, which can be configured for various indicators and auto-execute pre-configured orders.
XERA will have a liquidity reserve pool that mitigates liquidity issues. We will dedicate 10% of profit generated from trading fees to keep this pool healthy.
Poor customer service
We provide 24x7 support with dedicated agents who have verified expertise in their respective fields.
Lengthy validation process for KYC approval
We have partnered with Authenteq for a 90 seconds KYC process.
Lack of regulated crypto-fiat exchange
We are currently in the process of obtaining the required crypto trading licenses.
Poor or no audit process
We will be engaging a third party audit agency to perform regular audits and publish relevant and accurate results.
Slow engine and high latency
We already have POC engine developed with a recent test resulting in 2.5Mtps. High throughput and super-low latency means orders can be executed faster.
Security issues followed by hacks and theft
We have a team of security professionals and a dedicated budget for the most current security tools and procedures within the industry.
The XERA exchange will commence as a cryptocurrency-only exchange. This means that cryptocurrencies may only be purchased using other cryptocurrencies on the platform. We understand the benefits of incorporating fiat onto our exchange since Fiat currency continues to be superior in liquidity when compared to cryptocurrency and adding this to the exchange will increase the number of participants. More
participants equals to a higher volume on the exchange thus boosting liquidity. As the exchange grows and develops, fiat currency will be accepted. One of the primary unique value propositions of the XERA exchange centers on the suite of capabilities available to traders on our platform. For our inaugural launch, XERA will support trading in the following coins:
BTC (All coins can be traded with BTC)
ETH (will be disclosed later, what coins can be traded with ETH)
XERA coin (All coins can be traded with XERA)
However, we will add other cryptocurrencies based on a careful assessment of their demand, as the trader onboarding progresses.
About Backend Engine and Latency test
Trade execution speed plays a vital role in determining whether your trades are likely to yield good results or not. Today, execution speed and accuracy remain critical to maintaining a true edge in trading. In the crypto world, we are still far away from a trading engine with a speed of traditional trading platforms. Xera was able to achieve 2.5 MTPS (Million transactions per second) in our test lab on our POC systems. The video shows our backend engine performance test. Our team is going to constantly enhance the performance as we progress.
Latency means a delay or lapse of time between a request and a response. Higher latency means a larger delay for a trader to interact with the market and that results in price fluctuation and thus orders not getting fulfilled as expected. For active traders, latency needs to be managed to increase odds of success. Our systems are built to provide very low latency and that too in different geographical locations. The video shows our engines latency test.
WHY XERA STANDS OUT?
XERA will revolutionize the way cryptocurrencies are traded. The exchange offers a seamlessly integrated solution for the cryptocurrency investing to traders and investors.
There are still major functional gaps in exchanges, although many are available in different locations. The most existing problems with existing exchanges are often security issues, lack of liquidity, latency issues, and a few automated features not provided to traders.
The XERA team was founded by distributors with decades of banking and information technology experience. So xera has simply analyzed which features should not be missing in a high-quality crypto exchange. Many traders currently need to use third-party and other paid tools to help them trade smoothly on crypto exchanges.
XERA will provide all of these tools for crypto trading on the stock exchange to solve and improve key issues and challenges traders face. To finance the development, xera launches an ICO on the first of september 2018 for the sale of XERA tokens.
