PSA - You don't have to use that feature. It uses a price average over the 7 days to determine the rate exchange your funds. There is no way to tell what rate you will get, it is only for the lazy or those who know how to game the average calculation.

You can do your own exchange manually for a better rate here

The internal market seems to work well. I don't understand why they don't have bitshares on the platform. I've struggled to use openledger on my mac.

how would you game the avg calculation. you would bet that the price goes up in the next week. If that's your bet you can just wait the week and not risk being stuck w the funds.

Exactly, it seems like a bad idea any way you look at it.

My best guess? Aliens.

Probably to prevent mass panic selling.

I just tried it and I didn't see that in any of the beginner videos. It didn't even show up in my feed.
