Portfolio system is live!

3 months

Today is the big day we have all been waiting for: We enabled the option to invest into portfolios. We also made it possible to edit the profit share percentage after the portfolio was created, and increased the maximum possible profit share to 50%.

Please do not hesitate to send us feedback regarding our new portfolio system!


Here is a list of all changes of today's big update:

  • Portfolio statistics are now updated hourly instead of daily.
  • Added an overview table to the portfolio/activity page.
  • Added indication that investing into a portfolio is not possible when being in portfolio mode.
  • Added an icon to indicate where to change the profile picture.
  • Reworked portfolio search functionality - it is now possible to search when logged out.
  • Added a confirmation logic when disabling portfolio mode.
  • Fixed an issue where BCHUSD orders were incorrectly grouped in the interface.
  • Added multiple help text dialogs to portfolio page.
  • Backported 1Broker referral system changes (total clicks and users are now separated from the timeframe selection).
  • Dozens of minor interface improvements.

Minor update

3 months

Today, we released a small update to prepare for the launch of our portfolio system next week. The following changes have been made:

  • All portfolio statistics have been reset - Fixed an issue where deposits/withdrawals were included in the performance percentage.
  • Fixed order book chart for thin order books (BCHUSD).
  • Portfolio statistics/activity only shows positions with date_last_trade after the portfolio creation date.
  • Minimal public profiles visible for everyone.
  • API Changes:
    • user/get: changed the structure of the investments array.
    • user/overview: Renamed portfolio_own_percentage to portfolio_stake_percentage.

Portfolio System

3 months

Today, we added a portfolio system to 1Fox, that will allow traders to manage the funds of other users. To our knowledge, 1Fox is the first order book based platform that offers such a feature and we are extremely excited about it.

Currently, traders can enable the portfolio mode, check other traders' statistics and comment on them. As this is an extremely complex system, a lot of testing needs to be done and the possibility to actually move funds into other accounts will be enabled in the coming days.

We appreciate any feedback that we receive regarding this new system!


There are multiple other improvements and additions with today's update:

  • Improved order type selection in order create window.
  • Users can now delete their own account via the settings page.
  • If the "Dead Man Switch" triggers, an email is now sent.
  • The average difference percentage is now rounded towards zero on the funding history page.
  • API changes:
    user/get: renamed “profile_image_url” to “image_url”, there is also a new array containing the active “investments”.
    user/overview: new field “portfolio_own_percentage”, removed “public” field from positions.
    market/get: removed field minimum_margin_public.

New Funding System

5 months

Our funding system had several shortcomings and we’ve been considering several adjustments over the past couple of weeks. To mention a few:

  • The funding rate for the current interval was not fixed, meaning market makers had to compensate for this uncertainty with wider spreads.
  • The fixed funding step size meant that the funding rate would adjust very slowly even if the market conditions had drastically changed.
  • Even a very small constant offset of our mid price could result (over time) in the funding rate being maxed out.

To remedy these shortcomings we’ve made the following changes:

  • The funding rate for the current interval is now fixed.
  • The step size is now variable and proportional to the difference between the 1Fox and the index price, allowing our funding rate to adjust as slowly or rapidly as needed.
  • The new funding rate step size formula means that small offsets to the index price no longer accumulate and lead to a very high/low funding rates.

You can view the new funding rate formula and an example on how to calculate the next funding rate here: https://1fox.com/trade/#stats-funding-rates.

 

Here is the list of all changes introduced with this update:

  • Increased the maximum leverage for the BCHUSD market to 5.
  • Moved currency selector into sidebar on mobile version.
  • Order book chart now displays the correct base currency.
  • Fixed currency being displayed as “undefined” in OHLC chart.
  • Fixed floating point display issues in orderbook chart.
  • Order-create profit/loss calculator fields are not longer validated when creating an order.
  • Several minor improvements for the order-create profit/loss calculator.
  • Fixed a bug where referral payments for Bitcoin Cash were not paid out.
  • New field in market/get API call: current_funding_percentage and estimated_next_funding_percentage. (the redundant estimated_funding_percentage field will be removed with the next update!)
  • Fixed the profit/loss calculation for the take/profit and stop loss info boxes.

BCH/USD market is live

5 months

We are happy to announce that trading on our BCH/USD market is now live. All trades are settled in Bitcoin Cash (BCH). 1Fox is therefore the first platform to offer BCH-based perpetual derivative trading without settlements.

Symbol BCHUSD
Minimum Order Size 0.01 BCH
Maximum Leverage 3 (will be increased soon)
Funding -0.3% to +0.3% every 12 hours

 

BCH deposits and withdrawals are handled with our brand-new wallet infrastructure that supports both CashAddress and legacy addresses. If your wallet does not support the new CashAddress format yet, you can convert the 1Fox deposit address to the "legacy" address format with the CashAddress conversion tool.

During the coming weeks we will add more markets to 1Fox, so stay tuned.

Happy trading!


Multi-currency support and new profit/loss calculator

5 months

With the latest update, we finally added our multi-currency system. Furthermore we added a profit/loss calculator for the order create window. To improve our support ticket system, it is now possible to report support messages from our staff which were not helpful for you. For an overview of all other changes, here is the detailed changelog:

  • Added help texts and calculators for the stop loss and take profit field in position edit window.
  • New currency parameter for the following API calls: market/list, user/overview, user/get, user/deposit, user/transactions, position/history.
  • Fixed a bug in the position details profit loss window: If parts of the position were already closed and additional contracts were opened afterwards the simulated profit/loss was incorrect.
  • Access logs are kept longer now.
  • Switched to the new coinbase API.
  • Minimum withdrawal amount set to 0.0001 BTC.

Breaking API Changes

5 months

On Tuesday, July the 17th, we will deploy an update during our weekly market break. This update enables multi-currency support for our platform and therefore a currency parameter will be mandatory for certain API calls.
The following API calls are going to require the currency parameter:

  • user/get
  • user/overview
  • user/deposit
  • user/transactions
  • position/history

To avoid an interruption of your trading software after the update, you can already upgrade your application to include this parameter in your API calls. Here is an example: https://1fox.com/api/v1/user/overview.php?token=YOUR_API_TOKEN&pretty=true&currency=BTC

Additionally the WebSocket USER_USERID channel message will contain a currency field to call the corresponding user/overview method. Examples and a detailed documentation will be available once the update was deployed.
