The Thursday Recap #6
The Account Dashboard is nearly done, Bitfinex progress and many happy returns to the Bitcoin whitepaper
Thu Oct 31 2019
Welcome to our latest Thursday Recap, our weekly update on the industry and what we’ve been up to here at Recap HQ. If you missed the previous instalment you can catch up here.
We’re just finalising the account dashboard which will be releasing next week. Check it out below:
We're excited to be visualising more data from your accounts and are looking forward to surfacing more information. If anyone has any feedback at this point, please let us know.
We’re hard at work building our next integration with Bitfinex. This was the next most requested exchange integration after Binance which we launched a couple of weeks ago. Initially Recap will only support spot trading imports. It’s looking likely this will be launched next week or very soon after that.
After Bitfinex we’ll be circling around and reviewing the existing integrations, particularly looking at improving or adding margin support where applicable. After that we’ll be adding more exchanges, with BitMEX and Derebit looking like the next to be considered for integration. If you have any opinions on which exchanges to prioritise, let us know on Twitter or in our Telegram group.
This week marked both 50 years of the internet and 11 years since Satoshi Nakamoto first published the white paper Bitcoin: A Peer-to-Peer Electronic Cash System.
On 29th October 1969 the first internet message was sent from Charley Kline at UCLA to Bill Duvall at Stanford under the supervision of Professor Leonard Kleinrock. The message - LOGIN took two attempts with the first being interrupted at L-O when Duvall’s system crashed. Luckily things have improved since then - click here to take a look back at some of the internet’s key events.
Nakamoto’s White Paper set the scene for the Bitcoin network which was created on 3 January 2009 when Nakamoto mined the first block of the chain, known as the genesis block. The decentralized digital currency paved the way for the hundreds of digital currencies in use today and at the time of writing 1 BTC is worth £7,216! (or is it £6,850, or maybe £7,568 😁)
