Bonjour everyone! Welcome back to another rousing Dev Diary! We will discuss the implemented features of KICK ECOSYSTEM and host you through features in progress throughout this Dev Diary.


KICKEX — a robust, centralized exchange, which sums up all our experience that we’ve learned over the years from building and running KICKICO as well as other innovations in KICK ECOSYSTEM to create a next-generation exchange.

‣ #StopOrders. A service for working with stop orders has been completed, core logic has been implemented for submitting and executing stop orders;
‣ #Automatization. Developed an automated integrational testing service for stop orders functionality;
‣#Deploying. The team has been busy deploying KICKEX and KICKWALLET services for the upcoming closed beta test. By date, the funds deposit test has been completed, as well as balance testing.
‣ #UI/UX. The functionality to place market or limit orders has been added to the UI;
‣ #UI. User balance display has been added in the UI.

‣ #Servers. The initial deployment of KICKEX exchange in its own data center;
‣ #Testing. The testing of the following functionality has been made: the pass-through process of funds depositing, topping-up the balance and placing an order.

‣ #UI. The schedule for the next weeks includes working on the methods for displaying the order book and displaying the real-time information in the UI;
‣ #Replication. Ensuring the fault tolerance of KICKEX services is another important part in the ecosystem, as the vast majority of the exchange data is in-memory processed. The team will work on duplicating each critical service to enable data backups in case of a service failure;
‣ #UI. New UI functions will be added: displaying the history of trades, placed orders, order books.

KICKWALLET is a standalone cryptocurrency wallet that supports every currency in the KICK ECOSYSTEM and seamlessly integrates with every KICK service.

KICKID will make using our products simple and easy for all of our users. When you log in to one platform on the network, you automatically login to all platforms for a seamless experience. For maximum usability and reach, KICKID will support email login, Facebook login, and Gmail login.
