As many of you are aware, IDEX trading recently resumed after a period of extensive maintenance. To address our recent performance issues and prepare for future growth, our team has implemented several core infrastructure changes that will enable long-term scalability and provide a better overall user experience.
We apologize for the downtime that was critical to our efforts in making lasting improvements. Some of the key changes that were made to improve performance and uptime include:Splitting our monolithic service into microservices. This allows us to better monitor and scale key services independently as we grow. Parallelizing our order and trade arbitration architecture. This increases the number of simultaneous trade operations the system can process by magnitudes. Double AURA Trading Rewards on IDEX
We want to thank you all for your patience and understanding as the IDEX team has worked around the clock to address these issues. We value our users as they are what ultimately make IDEX successful, and we are grateful for your continued support.
As a symbol of our gratitude, we are doubling our AURA trading rewards distribution for the entire month of May (~3.8M AURA this month rather than ~1.9M). For those unfamiliar, AURA is the staking token of the upcoming, fully-decentralized IDEX exchange and Aurora network. The AURA token will enable stakers to earn a share of fees generated by IDEX and future Aurora products.
