Finally was able to take the updates from this last version of CoinPuffs!
And make some of the style updates that folks had recommended.
A few major changes of note…
Real Time without Whiplash
In the last version we had this:
Now, we have this:
Now, you can see the real-time updates without the possibility of an epileptic seizure.
Buy and Sell
This is the big one… and @peter and I went back and forth on implementation for quite some time… The short-story is that we want folks to be able to more quickly exchange their value based on market movements and we believe that the quickest way to do this is through a more wallet-to-wallet workflow.
Our hypothesis was that folks would want this. Now, it’s time to test that hypothesis in the real.
Based on this, we realized the building our own micro-exchange, if you will, is not worth the time, effort, or resources unless the need is validated. Consequently, we decided to use a more off-the-shelf approach using Changelly’s API.
This isn’t the best solution because it obviously kicks the user off to a different site and their API is sorely limited and lacking. And, they don’t currently offer that many coin exchange options:
But, at least they cover the larger and more well-known coins.
Our hope is that use of this system (we’re using their aff program to count conversions and clicks, FYI) gives us a really good gauge on interest and demand. If our hypothesis proves to be true then we’ll dedicate engineering resources to build our own! If not, we’ll remove it entirely.
Hope that makes sense.
A better mobile experience was already recreated:
So, there’s that. Live updating on this page as well.
Please give it a run and provide continued feedback! You all rock.
