Historic Milestones and the Future Roadmap
FLUID benefits from having started its conceptual and commercial development at the end of 2018.
Product viability was thoroughly established with 20+ MOUs being signed with potential exchange clients in 2019.
2020 saw the completion of development of the platform architecture; FLUID’s aggregated order book generation and management; and FLUID’s order matching, and trade execution processes.
The new technology and development team is reviewing and refining the current architecture and design based on previous experience, by utilizing quantitative algorithm/methodology and adopting AI/ML, to make SOR more intelligent, to fully replicate global liquid from top exchanges (both CEXs and DEXs) and maker makers, and in the mean time to hedge Fluid's own risk and exposures; and by utilizing latest ultra-low latency technology, to make Fluid universal order book not only just more usable and attractive, but also to make the platform more reliable, scalable and robust.
We expect to have the alpha testing of the new platform during mid 2022, and beta testing begins in 3rd quarter 2022.
The v1 FLUID interface is also being refined, with additional features being added, like price deviation analysis.
Once fundraising closes and the TGE occurs, the next step will be to develop smart contracts in Substrate or Gossamer, integrating these with the chosen layer 2 solution, and passing all these contracts through a thorough security audit.
The current roadmap will reach its conclusion at the 1st quarter in 2023, with a completed front end, DAPP integration, a live testnet, participant onboarding, and finally, the full, mainnet launch.
