Engine: Notice and Update
First things first. I'm really happy to share that in the last 24hrs we've done almost $80k of volume on just the steem/hive pairs. Some people think that we're incapable of moving large amounts of volume. Here I say, "nope, you're wrong." To everyone trading on the exchanges thanks for using them.
Product notice: market making smart contracts
Hopefully by the end of the month we'll launch Market Making smart contracts. A market maker is a tool or person or trades on both sides of the pair. How do they make money doing that? easy, you just leave a spread between your buy price and your sell price. When orders come in you put them on the other side. So, if you sell, you relist as a buy, and if you buy you relist as a sell. You make money on the spread and based on how much volume your market making activity is doing.
The risk is when there are giant price moves on your trading pair because unless the bot has setting to stop trading you may end up with only 1 crypto if customers are only interested in trading one side of the pair you're offereing.
Anyway, there are some risks, but there's also tons of potential for making money (mostly) passively by letting a smart contract trade for you 24/7.
There are additional updates coming on this front, so stay tuned this month!

We've better organized our support, we're adding features, more stuff related to NFTs are on the way, and we're generally building. The extra volume helps as there's a little more money to encourage faster development and support.
