Well, that's exactly the use case you need for a super-hyped technology, to help it survive the hype: Bitfinex confirmed on their Medium account they will start building a decentralized system using EOS.
According to the source:
In order to continue pushing the boundaries of market leading services, EOSfinex will combine the scalability and speed of EOS.IO with Bitfinex’s industry-leading expertise to deliver an “on chain” exchange designed to offer a fast, transparent and trustless platform for the trading of digital assets.
Now, let's not forget who we're talking about here: @dan, who co-founded one of the first decentralized ledgers, OpenLedger, and Bitfinex, one of the largest exchanges in the world.
Given this, and also the financial power behind EOSIO, the project really has a lot of chances to be implemented and, if not to supersede some of the centralized exchanges out there, at least to make a very nice figure amongst them.
Really looking forward to this one and hope @dan will include STEEM from day one.
