Today, Bitfinex announced plans to create EOSfinex, a high-performance decentralized exchange built on EOS technology. Aiming to broaden their horizons, EOSfinex will combine the scalability and speed of EOS with Bitfinex’s expertise in delivering a transparent, and trustless platform for cryptocurrency trading
A continuous goal of Bitfinex has been to research and sandbox the capabilities of various protocol-level technologies that meet the rigorous requirements of a high volume, blockchain-based trading platform.
This vision led them to EOS, whose goal of processing tens of thousands of transactions per second with minimal fees and confirmation time, is aligned with this objective.
