[PRESS RELEASE – Kyiv, Ukraine, 18th January 2023]
Cross-chain prime brokerage protocol Primex Finance rolls out a major update to its application. Launching in two stages, Beta 0.3.0 introduces a variety of new features, as well as improvements and fixes of existing functionalities.
Starting on January 12th, 2023, Phase 1 was exclusively available for Primex Early Users, who could be the first to have a hands-on experience with Beta 0.3.0. From now on, Early Users will get privileged access to all major protocol updates in the future (beginning from Beta 0.3.0). In addition to the chance to test new releases before other community members, participants of the program also enjoy further benefits, such as direct communication with the Primex team and fellow Early Users via Discord, as well as the ability to participate in private challenges and earn exclusive prizes.
On January 18th, 2023, the Primex team will open access for the public to Beta 0.3.0, allowing anyone to launch the application and test the new release without restrictions.
Beta 0.3.0 introduces four new core features. As the first and the most important, Primex now deploys to two new blockchains: the Polygon Mumbai and Polygon zkEVM testnets. followed, users can now test Primex by trading and lending digital assets on DEXs across four different blockchains (Ethereum Goerli, zkSync 2.0 testnet, Polygon Mumbai, and Polygon zkEVM testnet). With the new multi-chain functionality, traders and lenders can now swap between different networks via a single interface.
“When we asked our community which chains we should deploy Primex on, Polygon was by far the top choice among voters. While we were happy about the results, they didn’t come as a surprise for our team. Mumbai is the testnet of Polygon PoS, the Layer 2 blockchain with the highest DeFi TVL that can achieve up to 7,000 TPS. On the other hand, zkEVM is a newer solution that uses ZK-rollups via the ultra-fast Polygon Zero technology to achieve a 90% fee reduction for users on Ethereum’s L2. For these reasons, it makes great sense to deploy Primex on the testnets of these two blockchains,” said Vlad Kostanda, Primex Finance’s Co-Founder.
Besides the above core features, the Primex team introduced additional changes to the protocol as part of the Beta 0.3.0 update, including:
- Support for the OKX Walletwhich users can now utilize to connect their wallets to Primex alongside MetaMask and WalletConnect
- The integration of the QuickSwap v2 DEX on Polygon Mumbai
- Enhanced trading experience via a new bot that periodically synchronizes asset prices on the testnet with the mainnet
- Improved UX for downloading trading history
- The ability to see the date and time when an order or position was created on the trading page
- Bug fixes related to the translation of the Primex application’s certain components and translation delays after a user switches between languages
- Additional optimizations and bug fixes
