It’s probably fair to say that 2020 has been a tough year for all of us and filled with fear, uncertainty, and influence to the daily routines. But you are not alone, OceanEx is here to connect the global crypto community with our dedicated service, 24/7 hard working and commitment of safe asset protection. Two years ago, Xiaoning Nan established OceanEx as the Next Generation Intelligent Digital Asset Exchange. Here is a speech statement from OceanEx CEO Xiaoning Nan on this special occasion：
Dear all OceanExers,
Today is our 2nd anniversary on November 30th, 2020. I know 2020 is a tough year, but all of us never quit and devote our overall effort into building and enabling OceanEx.
Our beloved community and users have been the driving power for our evolution and probably just about every landmark we achieved and every challenge we overcame. Since day one, our vision has always been to Connect Global Crypto Community with the Best Trading Experience.
Meanwhile we recognize infrastructure is a fundamental way to reach this goal, and we work so hard to make sure that all of our products and services contribute in some way to reach our vision. Last 2 years were the foundation building phase for us. Now we have evolved into much more than just a crypto to crypto trading exchange.
We are celebrating the positive contribution we have made, honoring our evolution, and expressing our gratitude to you — our users, supporters, partners and community. Thank you very much for your long-time support. Let’s unite and fight together in upcoming 2021!
The 2nd year of OceanEx goal is about the foundation building. Our mission is building the infrastructure for crypto in tomorrow’s world. This includes our core businesses such as spot trading, futures trading, fiat gateways, wallets, and much more to come. During 2020, the OceanEx team dedicated to building stronger foundations and united communities.
We review the 2nd year of OceanEx, here’s a recap of how far we’ve come:
The combination of growth and build has led OceanEx to new heights in the crypto industry. OceanEx has ranked No.27on CoinGecko’s top cryptocurrency spot exchanges this summer. In March, OceanEx GO! successfully launched the new project — HackenAI (HAI). Until now the number of digital assets on OceanEx has grown to 48 tokens across 85 trading pairs. Furthermore, we launched DeFi Zone both on web and APP in September.
While not very noticeable from the outside, OceanEx has also made significant upgrades to exchange infrastructure- exclusive AI risk management framework. Professor Jiayu Zhou, Co-founder and CTO of OceanEx has released a paper detailing SHORELINE, a deep-learning framework that estimates the optimal threshold of hot wallets from historical wallet activities and dynamic trading networks. Its major use case details a process that would mitigate risk from cyber criminals and hackers on cryptocurrency exchanges.
OceanEx also launched Hummingbot trading and new API to offer professional trading experience in June. The updated Non-subscription new API which is a query-based websocket API. It provides the same level of OceanEx REST API. It allows users perform operations such as new orders, order cancel, order status query and order history query. The key advantage of the API is that it is much faster and more stable than REST API.
In 2020, OceanEx CryptoFarm is now fully upgraded and Shark Fin structured product has been launched in April. It provides users of long-term value investment with one more choice and meanwhile gains higher expected annualized return than other financial products, which is no doubt more attractive.
