Hong Kong, 10 August 2018 – ExCraft, a cloud-native cryptocurrency exchange based in Hong Kong that implements a DAO governance ran by the users and pools, was launched today. ExCraft stands out by being a community and pool focused exchange, rewarding traders through a combination of “Proof of Existence” (PoE) and “Proof of Stake” (PoS) mechanisms, allowing power-users to create pools, vote for new project listings, and even create dedicated pool exchanges based on its immutable and fair PoE and PoS meritocracy.

The first DAO-based exchange – “ExCraft, Craft Your Own Exchange!”

ExCraft introduces the first decentralized autonomous organization exchange managed based on a single or pooled user trade volume meritocratic Proof of Existence voting system. Verified KYC (Know Your Customer) users will be able to vote on listing new projects to be sponsored in the exchange. The ExCraft community values all users input as well as those who trade most frequently.

The governance of the DAO will combine ExCraft with a Congress and a Senate made of Pool Masters and Grand Pool Masters to which all votes will be submitted. All votes will be subjected to a Congress and a Senate smart contract voting based on both KYC users and the meritocratic system:

  • The Representative Proof of Stake Congress will be a meritocracy based on the top 101 users holding EXT tokens as determined by a smart contract. Any current representative of the congress may bring an issue to vote. The vote result will be transparent and easily verifiable on the blockchain. When a bill passes the Congress, it is passed to the Senate for a second vote in a new smart contract.
  • The Representative Pool Master Senate is made of Pool Masters of the top 101 pools containing the most PoE across their pool members. The system will empower the Senate with the ability to pass legislation through a democratic process. Conversely, users with only a single vote must convince the pools of senators with Proof of Existence to approve the legislation they have passed. Member of Congress are free to change pool and shift their PoE voting power to a new pool for the next round of voting should they disagree with the outcome of the vote.
  • The top 30 Senators who have at least 1000 KYC users on average over the past two weeks will be automatically designated as a Grand Pool Master. They will have the additional decision-making rights to request ExCraft to list custom tokens to their pool members only without requiring a full DAO vote, and only needing to go through a centralized ExCraft approval process. If 80% of all Grand Pool Masters (24) list a custom token, the token will be automatically and permanently approved for use for all ExCraft exchange users without requiring a DAO vote.

An Innovative approach to rewarding users

ExCraft will create an initial decentralized service by rewarding users based on “Proof of Existence” (PoE). The ExCraft platform will introduce three separate ways to reward users for their activity, with its own ERC20 compatible EXT token. The reward system is designed to sustain the EXT token economy ensuring value redistribution and increase over time:

  • Excraft will reward the community with a calculated number of EXT tokens daily which are distributed based on each user’s Proof of Existence volume. The exchange will also purchase EXT tokens with no less than 80% of the fees collected and permanently remove them from the overall supply.
  • A Proof of Stake mechanism will enable users who hold EXT tokens in the exchange or any private Ethereum wallet address registered with the exchange to receive rewards on a daily basis based on the amount of EXT they hold.
  • Pool Rewards will be distributed to users who chose to join “Exchange Pools’ and have their PoE counted towards the total pool PoE increasing their chance of receiving a larger portion of the daily token distribution. A pool will be considered eligible for pool rewards if it is among the top 101 pools as measured by the combined PoE of all their members and contains at least 100 KYC users. The Pool Master will elect to have the reward automatically redistributed to pool members, and may decide to retain a certain percentage of the reward.

This innovative trifecta of user activity reward possibilities puts ExCraft a step ahead of other exchange as it values all users based on a meritocracy system totally new to the industry.

Unparalleled reliability and security by design powered by cloud-native microservices

The ExCraft Exchange Platform is implemented in Google Compute Platform, custom built to support both security and performance. The cloud-native exchange platform is architected to be both modular and scalable by utilizing docker for encapsulating key components into a set of microservices managed by Kubernetes.

Unlike many traditional monolithic centralized exchanges, the ExCraft architecture promotes performance by allowing the exchange to quickly add additional resources and changes in functionality with minimal to no disruption to any existing trading activity. The exchange platform has been tested to support thousands of trading pairs with an overall capability to support tens of millions of transactions per second.

The ExCraft platform utilizes docker not just as a means to bring operational efficiencies but also to reduce security risks by compartmentalizing critical services through network isolation and resource management. Should a vulnerability be found in one service, ExCraft uses hardened docker containers with Kubernetes to enforce “deny by default” to reduce the possibility of an attacker using a compromised service from accessing another service.

Huobi Global Will Support Stablecoin Trading Through its HUSD Offering

It would appear there is still plenty of stablecoin action on the horizon in the cryptocurrency industry. More specifically, there has been an influx of such currencies over the past few months. Huobi Global is now planning to introduce its own stablecoin, although it is a bit different from what one would expect. The Huobi Global Stablecoin Plan On the surface, it is rather commendable to see so many exchanges offer stablecoins to its users in quick succession. Gemini issued its own stablecoin a few weeks ago, and Circle has their own currency pegged to the US Dollar as well. Combined with the likes of USDT and TUSD, it is evident there is a fierce battle for market traction taking place right now. That should introduce more market liquidity moving forward, although the reality may be very different. Assuming stablecoins will take off, however, Huobi Global might be on to something in this regard. More specifically, the company acknowledges there is a demand for trading with stablecoins, but the exchange is doing things a bit differently first and foremost. They are effectively launching a program which seems much like yet another stablecoin, however it is nothing along those lines. To put this in perspective, Huobi Global will support deposits of Paxos Standard, TrueUSd, USD Coin, and Gemini Dollars. These four stablecoins have all come to market in 2018 and are quickly bringing some much-needed competition to Tether. As a result, a lot of exchanges are rushing to integrate support for these stablecoins Huobi Global is no different in this regard, even though the company will not necessarily allow for trading in either of these stablecoins. Instead, the platform will convert deposits of these four stablecoins into something known as “HUSD”. It is a bit similar to how Bitfinex converts USDT deposits into USD, even though they should be treated as to separate currencies. In the case of Huobi Global, their conversion to HUSD makes sense, as users can still withdraw this balance in any of the supported stablecoins. It is simply the actual trading which will not occur in PAX, TUSD, USDC, or GUSD. To a lot of users, this might seem a bit unusual. After all, there is not necessarily a need for converting stablecoins to a native “currency” and then converting it back to said stablecoins. For Huobi Global, the company is evaluating this approach and they might integrate support for additional stablecoins in the future. Any stablecoin not meeting the company’s risk control standard will be removed from the platform accordingly. The bigger question is whether or not this project will generate a lot of success. After all, this added layer on top of dealing with stablecoins will not necessarily appeal to a lot of investors, but the concept also has a fair bit of merit in the end. It is good to see the exchange not necessarily introduce its own stablecoin, even though HUSD will serve that specific purpose.
