11/26/2021

Amongst many options, OKEx employees demonstrated how customers may automate their buying and selling course of with no required coding data on the namesake platform.

Based in 2017, OKEx is a centralized cryptocurrency change primarily based in Seychelles. Based on CoinGecko, OKEx is the world’s third-largest cryptocurrency brokerage, with almost $12 billion in buying and selling quantity inside the previous 24 hours. The change lists 312 cash and 518 cryptocurrency buying and selling pairs.

It is typically troublesome for brand spanking new cryptocurrency fanatics to navigate the complicated world of buying and selling and finance.

Cointelegraph Markets Professional Person: How can somebody profit from bots / API [Application Programming Interface] buying and selling with no coding expertise? Does OKEx have any partnerships totally built-in?

OKEx Employees: TLDR [Too Long, Didn’t Read], you do NOT have to have any coding expertise to automate trades with the buying and selling bot on OKEx. We make it very easy so that you can set the buying and selling bot up — it is built-in into the OKEx buying and selling dashboard. You may principally go totally automated by selecting the AI choice and simply setting the order quantity in Tether (USDT) or you’ll be able to manually set your parameters, together with the higher and lower cost limits, for the asset you need to commerce.

So the bot is actually an auto-trading software with pre-set parameters. Buying and selling bots can maximize revenue potential, particularly in instances of a range-traded market. So with a buying and selling bot, just like the one we’ve on OKEx, it is going to be extra worthwhile if the market you select goes up (promoting), then down (shopping for), then up, down, and so on., fairly than simply up, up, up. The buying and selling bot on OKEx is on the market for all spot buying and selling pairs, which implies you should buy and promote Ether (ETH), out and in of Bitcoin (BTC), for instance. A buying and selling bot video tutorial is coming quickly! Subsequent week, probably, however here is the written tutorial. And here is what it seems to be like within the person interface (UI). You need not [have] API/coding expertise as a way to execute such a strong and automatic technique.

CT Markets Professional Person: How do you assume the India crypto ban will impression the crypto area?

OKEx employees: I feel, for India, the regulator wish to have a extra complete framework in regulating crypto as a substitute of banning it. Historical past informed us when crypto is allowed and controlled — it may possibly even be stronger. The India ban is unlikely to have any main impression available on the market. Crypto has develop into fairly resilient to such information developments over the previous couple of years. 

CT Markets Professional Person: Cryptocurrencies have a fairly excessive beta [volatility]. Do you guys use the identical monetary mannequin (i.e., Black Scholes) as shares to cost crypto derivatives?

OKEx employees: Our choice market makes use of the Black Scholes mannequin to compute mark worth (honest worth of the precise contract). And for threat administration, we’re utilizing a SPAN-like situation stress-tester (just like the Chicago Mercantile Trade) to calculate the utmost lack of the shopper’s portfolio.

CT Markets Professional Person: I not too long ago heard [of] some developments with the OKExChain. What is going on on with that?

OKEx employees: Sure, the rumors are true! [The trading chain] It is known as OEC. The mainnet was launched this summer season. Somewhat bit about OEC: it is an EVM [Ethereum Virtual Machine] appropriate public blockchain that makes use of Cosmos / Tendermint structure. OKEx has been quietly growing OEC for a number of years to make it as strong as potential and to handle the blockchain trilemma. Versus being an Ethereum clone, it is being constructed from the bottom up. For extra in-depth data on OEC, you’ll be able to learn this, however it’s not mild studying.

CT Markets Professional Person: What’s the OKEx DeFi Hub? What services and products are at the moment supplied and the very best staking alternatives?

OKEx employees:  DeFi is a brand new mode on OKEx. You may toggle between the “Trade” and “DeFi” modes on okex.com or within the app. It is principally like a bridge between the worlds of CeFi and DeFi — OKEx brings DeFi to you in a single cohesive interface. Initially, you do not have to have an OKEx account to make use of the DeFi mode. You join your Internet 3.0 pockets, you’ll be able to observe wallets and see all of your DeFi property in a single place. For the time being, the DeFi mode (which launched this fall) at the moment consists of our very personal NFT market, GameFi heart, and dashboard, the place you’ll be able to view your whole decentralized property, together with your NFTs. However there’s extra coming quickly! OKEx gives a bespoke Internet 3.0 pockets you can conveniently use through the browser extension (Chrome or Firefox) or instantly within the OKEx app. Presently, staking, financial savings and yield-farming affords are solely accessible on OKEx Earn through our centralized platform. That is all I can say for now. 

CT Markets Professional Person: I’d recognize your views on multi-billion greenback meme cash and whether or not they function a viable supply of influx to crypto, or are they ticking time bombs able to destabilize the market if and once they pop; that means, is there really room in a rational crypto marketplace for these cash?

OKEx employees: Good query! Sure, meme cash are undoubtedly performing as gateways for non-native crypto buyers/merchants as a result of their accessibility. There’s a particular risk of those cash sliding sharply sooner or later, however I would not go as far as to say they will destabilize the market at this level. Their speculative nature is on the market for all to know, and these cash do not take themselves too severely, which implies buyers are considerably conscious of the dangers. Furthermore, the highest meme cash, equivalent to DOGE and SHIB, have really cemented themselves fairly nicely by now. We really did an episode on meme cash on our podcast. Here’s a hyperlink to that for the total dialogue.

CT Markets Professional Person: How does OKEx combine with the play-to-earn video games? 

OKEx employees: For the time being, the GameFi heart on okex.com is a play-to-earn sport aggregator. So you could find all the most recent and hottest blockchain video games there. You may simply filter by blockchain community and we characteristic video games on over 20 totally different networks, together with video games completely constructed on OEC (the general public blockchain developed by OKEx, which I defined above). Every sport listed on OKEx GameFi has its personal web page that tells you all concerning the sport, the worth historical past of the in-game property and different key data. We additionally embrace the hyperlink on to the sport’s website so you’ll be able to go play it — most play-to-earn video games are performed in-browser. This is a enjoyable spacey sport constructed on OEC.

CT Markets Professional Person: How would you comparecontrast Okex with, say, Coinbase? What makes OKEX stand out in a world with so many change selections?

OKEx employees: OKEx is a complicated buying and selling platform that gives derivatives (choices, futures, perp swaps), buying and selling bots, margin buying and selling and an unlimited variety of tokens. Plus, we not too long ago launched a DeFi mode with decentralized choices, equivalent to NFTs and crypto video games, and a helpful dashboard to handle all of your DeFi property. Our line of providers, starting from extremely liquid buying and selling markets to staking/farming choices, are aimed toward catering to merchants and buyers of all ranges.

Aside from the DeFi mode, the buying and selling bot talked about earlier and our new portfolio margin mode are a few examples of how we proceed to push ahead with providers and instruments that facilitate [the success of] crypto market contributors. OKEx is the primary platform to supply true portfolio margin with multi-currency collateral threat offset — it is a enormous plus for skilled merchants buying and selling massive portfolios, particularly choices/different crypto derivatives as a result of it lets them closely scale back margin necessities.

CT Markets Professional Person: The place do you see the whole crypto market cap going in a single 12 months, 5 years? What market phase is undervalued proper now? Identification? Meta? Layer one?

It is arduous to say any precise numbers, however it looks as if the charts go up and to the appropriate! Nevertheless, market contributors will do nicely to maintain tabs on financial coverage modifications within the subsequent 12 months. Personally, I feel that Internet 3.0/digital id/metaverse initiatives are undervalued in comparison with the place they (or at the very least some) will likely be in just a few years. We talked quite a bit about this with some nice company on final week’s episode of our podcast.

Disclaimer: The next market predictions have been made earlier than of the onset of reports of a novel coronavirus variant negatively impacted capital markets worldwide on Nov. 26. They is probably not relevant within the present atmosphere and shouldn’t be considered funding recommendation.

CT Markets Professional Person: Do you guys assume that [Bitcoin price] $69 thousand was the highest? Is there nonetheless an opportunity for one more alt season within the subsequent couple of months?

OKEx employees: $69 thousand is the highest or not is a matter of time frames, in my view. On-chain metrics, equivalent to change flows and balances, point out that the final all-time excessive ($69 thousand) may be very unlikely to be the highest for this cycle. That being mentioned, BTC can also be not prone to transfer straight up, even when most metrics are bullish. That is due to the way in which the market has matured and the growing variety of market contributors as nicely. Matured within the sense that there’s a distinction in market composition from 2013 to 2017 and 2021. Much more “severe” buyers and institutional involvement and futures from CME, for example, and the exchange-traded funds (ETFs). 

The larger a market will get, the slower it strikes and the much less risky it turns into. Nevertheless, the following few months, particularly Q1 2022, must be fascinating to watch as we might even see this bullish cycle lengthen into the following 12 months as a substitute of ending in December. If that occurs, we will certainly see one other alt season.

I feel we’re already beginning to see one thing of a meme season/metaverse season in the mean time. Clearly the information from Fb going all-in with the metaverse spurred on that facet of issues, however the decentralized metaverse is certainly seeing new capital influx. In my opinion, the market cycles by way of sectors; for example, we’re at the moment seeing metaverse trending however may see different lagging classes begin catching up so long as BTC stays bullish/would not slide too sharply. Typically, if the market seems to be robust, every thing goes to rise in the end. We are able to see there’s a constant influx from institutional cash. Fairness steadiness on institutional movement is steadily growing. Arduous to inform as regards to shopping for Ethereum, although, since they commerce every thing and all have various kinds of methods.

The BTC change internet place change metric, for example, remains to be not exhibiting indicators of the present worth, or the final ATH [All Time High], being a high just like the one we noticed in Could.
