The launch of eosfinex is followed by a bug-bounty campaign along with four months of intensive testing. The official blog post notes that  “a number of additional updates will follow throughout the next few weeks as we transition away from beta mode, unveil additional features and begin the process of open-sourcing the foundations of the exchange”.

Moreover, for the enhanced community integration and development, eosfinex plans to open-source the smart contracts running on the platform.

Paolo Ardoino, Chief Technology Officer at Bitfinex, said:

EOS was picked as the foundation for eosfinex due to its potential for high-throughput, low-latency transactions, and the results of the beta period have further confirmed our confidence in its capabilities. The launch of eosfinex is a further testament to the exceptional qualities of the Bitfinex development team, and we are incredibly pleased to continue the second stage of this journey”.

The EOSIO blockchain technology backing eosfinex will allow for the horizontal scaling of the decentralized application (DApps). This will further allow the developers to create high performing and efficient distributed applications.
