Bump.

I have a colleague who's setting up a regional crypto exchange. All the competitors are pretty shitty, even by crypto-exchange standards. So the goal is to beat all the competition in terms of technology.

He's looking for a white box solution. Ideally something that supports a real limit order book matching engine, and something with a decent push-based datafeed. It'd have to support localization in the frontend, both for the language and the exchange brand.

Anyone have any recommendations here? Feel free to either respond here, or drop me an email. Thanks.

Maybe this:

Out of curiosity: what would be the advantage of you colleague compared to others? If it's about being "less shitty", why don't people use GDAX, poloniex...? Or is being local a must?

Does anyone find any value in this sort of research and especially the work of Sornette?

Serious question: I personally don't, but I'd be glad to hear other opinions.

My point is that when I see people like Sornette predicting market crashes with very vague statements like "in the following months"
(e.g. https://www.valuewalk.com/2017/07/financial-crisis-observatory/)
and then months later the S&P500 market is up+20% from where it was at the time of Sornette's prediction, and even now, after some correction, is still +5% higher than at the time of Sornette's prediction...

I guess if we wait forever, sooner or later Sornette predictions will somehow come true, a bit like Nostradamus, correct?

@kloc

Thanks for the recommendation.

A lot of factors behind why GDAX, et al. isn't competitive in this region. Poor localization. No support for the local fiat currencies. The banking systems in this part of the world are often subject to capital controls and/or poorly integrated. GDAX doesn't work with the dominant regional payment systems. Plus the would-be exchange already had a pre-existing forex brokerage, so it already has a well known brand.

Thx - brand and banking/capital reasons make a lot of sense.

Localization - I guess this is somewhere in central or SE Asia...?

Like in "practical usage"? No. I doubt this method has any value outside of its classical usage in material science.

I do like the idea that an extreme event might be more predictable than everyday business.

But this stuff has way too many parameters for a tiny set of data...

Yes, that is what I did mean:

separating "academia" from "practical usage".

Glad to know you agree.

Sometimes news tell that large BTC holders are dumping it, therefore, price goes down.

Bloomberg

Is it possible to check what share of BTCs are changing hands and which fraction is "sleeping"?
That would give an ultimate answer to claims made by press.

PS. Ah. Found it. Term called 'dormancy'

"Average dormancy"
