HollaEx 2.9 (Malibu)

HollaEx continues its journey of innovation with the release of Malibu v2.9, a substantial update that introduces a host of exciting features and configurations for exchange operators. In this edition, we shine the spotlight on the staking system, numerous new coin listings, enhanced control over asset withdrawals, and Quick Trade improvements to provide a more unified experience for all assets, including OTC crypto brokers. For a short summary of 2.9 read the release notes, for upgrade details read on below:

Staking Rewards

The biggest highlight of Malibu v2.9 is the introduction of a robust CeFi staking system. This feature empowers exchange operators with the ability to create interest-bearing staking pools that pay out the token of their choice. The parameters of the pool can be set to align with their unique business requirements. The staking system allows the admin exchange operator to select digital assets on their exchange and set the APY (Annual Percentage Yield), payout source account, and other rules such as recommended duration, lock-in periods, and penalties for early unstaking. Once all the parameters are set a staking pool will be displayed to the user on the staking page under CeFi. HollaEx staking is uniquely different from your typical DeFi staking as it allows the operator to set up the parameters without having to deal with complex smart contracts and without paying expensive blockchain fees.

Set your own APY for your tokens as well as the staking duration.

The staking system being directly on the exchange also has the added benefit for users as it will be cheaper, faster, and much more similar to a regular financial product that you'd login into with your email that earns interest. The staking pools will be easily reviewable with the pool's rules and will only require the user to input the amount they would like to stake.

Set up staking rules such as slashing or penalty rates for unstaking early.

When it comes to unstaking it will depend on how the pool was initially set up. Some pools can be set up to be flexible to enter and leave (this is called a ‘perpetual’ staking pool). Other pools can be set up with a recommended duration with a deduction rule (AKA, 'slashing'). The pool can even be set up so that leaving the pool is impossible until the stake is complete, or 'mature'.

Flexible staking pool setup. Easily close and open the pool in a clear and organized manner without expensive and complex onchain contracts.

Staking allows exchange operators to offer a rewards program to their users. It also gives exchange businesses the ability to craft various types of tokenomics systems outside and have them mapped to a staking system directly on the exchange platform, clear and easy for the user to interact with.

Staking, particularly through centralized finance (CeFi) systems, is recommended for newly launched tokens seeking a controlled distribution method. CeFi staking offers advantages such as avoiding expensive blockchain fees, utilizing regular email accounts for distribution (eliminating the need for a separate wallet and private key management), and providing flexibility in adjusting staking pool settings without complex smart contract programming. This approach is seen as a safe and efficient precursor to on-chain staking, which can be error-prone and incur costly blockchain fees.

Utilizing HollaEx white label exchange software for CeFi staking ensures operators a secure and highly controllable environment. This not only caters to a broader user base unfamiliar with decentralized finance (DeFi) staking but also offers a more cost-effective, familiar, and faster user experience compared to traditional DeFi staking methods.

(If your project is ready for a DeFi staking, please reach out to HollaEx and inquire about smart contract development and consultations here.)

Users can join your staking pools easily and start earning on your website.

Staking pools are displayed to the user on the staking page under CeFi staking. Pools display the APY and other rules of the pool. Users can check their stakes under the 'MY STAKES' page to track their earnings, unstake and more.

New Coin Listings: Riding that Altcoin Wave

HollaEx’s Malibu v2.9 includes many more digital assets and altcoins, covering the top 70 crypto assets (with more to come!).

These new coins can be paired up automatically against USDT, allowing users to buy and sell these new coins through the Quick Trade interface. Users only need to search for the asset's symbol. For automatic pairing, the operator is required to have USDT added to their exchange, and they will need to be connected to HollaEx Network (Voyager Exchanges do not have access to HollaEx Network Broker Deals).

A few of the most recently added assets and Quick Trade markets are TON, INJ, ICP, HBAR, GRT, CHZ, BLUR, SUI, RNDR, STEPN, OP, and many more! Be sure to follow HollaEx on X.com (AKA: Twitter) to get the latest on what new assets and markets have been listed on HollaEx white label crypto exchange.

Operator Logs

HollaEx v2.9 also introduces an audit system, boosting transparency and team member accountability. This feature adds an extra layer of trust to the operations ecosystem, providing confidence for all operators by providing valuable insights into each event taking place on the exchange platform.

The new admin operator logs page shows all the events that have occurred on the exchange. The page also lists the users affected by each action and the page also allows for the quick filtering by 'operator' or 'user'.

The operator has the capability to seamlessly track a chronological record of all events within the exchange's admin Operator Control Panel, including changes, views, and various actions such as searches performed on the user database as well as on transactions.

Essentially, every event carried out by team members is meticulously logged. This comprehensive log includes specific information about the affected user, such as the clear display of user ID, this can be particularly useful when oversight is required over members in training or for general safety operations and due diligence.

Events such as changes to withdraw limits, and other sensitive actions can be reviewed and tracked with convenient chronological layout and timestamps.

Similarly, user activity logs for end users will soon be available. This will help end users to know what exactly has occurred on their account and will assist in building confidence in the platform by offering clear and transparent activity logs.

All events carried out by team members can be exported, reviewed, and audited.

Quick Trade Refinements

The Quick Trade is a vital aspect of the white label exchange, and in Malibu v2.9 the Quick Trade has been further refined and improved with all assets now showing clear market data regardless if the market is a Network Broker OTC deal or a deal originating from the public orderbook market. There are also other minor enhancements such as a clearer price quote countdown timer, as well as an easier re-quoting system for when the price quote token has expired, and other various quality-of-life improvements such as links to specific asset info pages, and market origin labelling.

Quick Trade now displays a 7-day or 1-day mini-chart for the price trend for all markets, including Network Broker OTC Deals. Previously only Orderbook-sourced markets would display a chart. This allows the users to be more informed and confident when making trades on your platform.

The most significant and perhaps most noticeable change in HollaEx’s v2.9 Quick Trade is the introduction of a new mini-chart toggleable for both 1-day and 7-day performance tracking for all the coins (previously only orderbook based markets would show price charting).

Quick Trade now gives clearer price quote states and allows the user to quickly requote.

Getting a new price quote no longer requires inputting the amounts again. Instead the user can simply hit the REQUOTE button and get the new Quick Trade price.

Independent transaction limit configurations

In previous version of HollaEx white label the daily withdrawals of asset would all share a set value amongst all assets on the exchange, for example if the daily max limit is valued at $2,000 only and a user withdraws $1,000 worth of BTC in a day, followed soon by $1,000 of Ethereum, the total value for the day withdrawn would equal $2,000. This would max out the daily limit and thus the user won’t be able to withdraw until 24 hours passed.

However now in v2.9 the operator can set independent limits for each individual digital asset. Essentially an asset's withdrawals can now be counted separately. For example the admin may set the BTC withdrawal limit to 1 BTC a day for tier 1 accounts, and it won’t be counted against any other assets.

An independent withdrawal limit can now be set for specific asset. These independent withdrawal limit won't be shared amongst other assets and allows the operator to have greater control over withdrawals.

Monthly Withdraw Limit

In addition to the newly implemented independent withdraw limit, there's a monthly withdraw limit designed to provide operators with greater control over withdrawal velocity. This feature enables operators to set a maximum monthly withdrawal amount, strategically capping the speed at which withdrawals can occur. For instance, if the daily withdrawal limit is set at $2,000, operators can establish a higher monthly withdrawal cap, such as $30,000.

Consider a scenario where a user might be inclined to withdraw the maximum daily amount, resulting in a potential monthly withdrawal of $60,000 without a monthly limit. However, with the introduction of a $30,000 monthly cap, users are prevented from consistently withdrawing at the maximum daily rate. This restriction encourages users to plan their withdrawals more thoughtfully, mitigating the risk of an excessive pace that could impact the overall stability of the platform.

The combination of daily and monthly limits empowers operators to regulate withdrawal velocity effectively, providing a safeguard against potential excessive outflows that may arise from compromised user accounts.

A new monthly limit can be set to better control the velocity of withdrawals encouraging platform sustainability and security.

This new independent withdrawal is now clearly visible to the user within their fees and limits page. The operator likewise can see what assets have their own independent limit, and set them according to their preferences. Each user tier account level can have their own withdrawal limits. Allowing operators to create account tiers with extra benefits, helping create better incentive structures around account upgrading and accessibility.

User can now clearly see what assets share a collective withdraw limit, vs. asset that have their own withdrawal limits.

Note by default, all assets will added to the ‘Collective Aggregation Limit’, meaning withdrawals of any of these asset will count towards the total daily or monthly withdrawal value amount unless otherwise specified by the operator.

The asset by default will always share a collective aggregation limit for withdrawals (bottom of above admin panel screenshot), while asset with their own independent limit will be removed from the collective list and moved to the above Independent Limits list, thus separating special asset with their own withdrawal rules clearly for the operators to manage.

Edit Email

As part of client-side development, Malibu v2.9 allows exchange operators to edit email addresses. This small yet powerful feature grants operators more control and flexibility in managing user accounts, making it easier to meet the unique needs of their exchange's user base.

Emails can now be changed in the rare cases where the user requires it.

The operator can change any user’s email address by visiting the user's profile page and clicking next to the user’s email address. The operator will then be required to enter the security code sent to their email and input their 2FA code (OTP).

This allows operators to deal with rare problems users may face when their email account has been lost or compromised. This action should be sparingly used, in the unique situations where it is required instead of recommending the creation of a new account.

User email changes require careful security steps overseen by the administrator. (It is strongly advised to request verification from the user to ensure the integrity of the process and user database.)
