Nimiq Mainnet: deadline for the token transition

Dear traders,

Nimiq, a browser-based blockchain payment protocol & ecosystem, has set grace period ending on November 30 for Activating NIM for NET. We kindly remind the NET token holders to activate NIM to access the Nimiq Mainnet.

The last chance to activate NIM from your NET is by Friday at 3:00 pm GMT, November 30, 2018.

Activation of NIM from NET started February 28. After launching Mainnet on April 14, a generous period of an additional 6 months was provided and recently entered a grace period until the end of October. This grace period is extended a last and final time, providing every NET holder with an ultimate chance to make use of their NET and activate corresponding NIM.

The NET token (ERC20) smart contract will be stopped in conjunction with the announced end of NIM Activation. With that, it becomes technically impossible to move NET tokens from one address to any other and their effective ‘life’ ends. The trading for the token will be halted, possibly prior to its deferral.

To activate your tokens, visit http://nimiq.com and follow the “Activation” link.

BCH Hard Fork Update

Dear traders,

As you may know, the fork for Bitcoin Cash is planned to happen on November 15. The development expectations for BCH have divided it into two separate coins, BCHSV and BCHABC.

In the previous blog post, we announced the full support of the pre-fork trading for BCHABC and BCHSV. Now we would like to share our strategy for the full support of the network during and after the hard fork to make the transition as smooth as possible.

During the time of transition, you will be able to trade all of the three currencies involved. The converter of BCH into BCHABC and BCHSV and back will also remain accessible.

HitBTC product update: Post Only orders

Dear traders,

Today we introduce the new “Post Only” option for limit orders, also known as “Add Liquidity Only” orders.

Usually, traders use Post Only orders to avoid paying the Taker fee and prevent faults of entry, as incorrect orders would fail to be executed.

How it works:

  1. Upon arrival to the matching engine, a check will be performed to ensure that the Post Only order does not remove liquidity from the order book.
  2. In case any part of such order matches with a pre-existing order, it is immediately removed before executing.
  3. Post Only limit order resides in the order book until it is filled as a regular limit order.

In other words, this order type guarantees that the order only brings liquidity to the market, and never removes it.

So, providing the market participants with extra opportunities becomes a sensible commitment for the crypto exchanges in the first place.
