It would have been perfect if this was organized on the Sophia WeiDex implementation :slight_smile:

yeah, it would have… :slight_smile:

OMG, that DEX is so sexy. Good job WeiDex team! Can’t wait when they will port it to Sophia. It would be a game changer. Have you guys thought about creating wrapped BTC, ETH and other coins like Binance is doing while going towards decentralized exchange? So there would be let’s say BTCw, ETHw, DAIw, etc. just for the sake of trading them on your platform.


Hey, thanks for the positive feedback.

We will soon introduce WBTC and DAI as a base currency. The AE version of the DEX will also be released with the same UI (hopefully soon).


I have two questions:

  1. Could the rewards be lower? Why are these numbers selected? They look a bit high to me, but I am not familiar with how these competitions usually go.
  2. When will the WeiDex decentralized exchange be available on Sophia? I would suggest to focus on this primarily and do a smaller (in terms of prizes) competition now.


Evaluation board result:



  1. If the rewards are to be lowered, there will be no stimulus for the traders to participate. These are already the smallest possible amounts having in mind the competitions held by other exchanges e.g.

  2. About the Sophia implementation. Our developers had some bad experience with the last hardfork and the tooling around it, which delayed some of the other plans we had. We will most probably wait for the next hard fork and then renew the development on AE - which I guess is mid-september.


Re 2. I am glad to see the honest comment. That is why I insist on the “developers first” instead of “mobile first” approach which can wait as it focuses on the end-user.

Hello. Let me know when you are able to refine your proposal based on our comments in the call. I will then schedule you for the next campaign review as soon as you’re ready–either on Mon 10AM or Thurs 3PM.


We decided that there will be no point in decreasing the rewards and will hold back our proposal until the Sofia weiDex Implementation is ready. So, we withdraw our proposal for now.

I’m not a team member, just a community member. But I think you’re greedy and greedy. You’ve got starship funding, but you don’t want to fix an SDK problem. Now apply for CBC again?



Where’s your weidex-ae?

What gave you the courage to mention binance? Do you have binance 1% users?

We wanted to fix the SDK problem.
And our developers have spent lots of time and resources to help the SDK team.
You are not familiar with that, but it is how to say - unfair to blame us when you are not well informed.

Why to not apply for CBC?
Isn’t it for community building?
Do you think that we are spending these grants for beers and chips?
Have you checked our twitter and progress or you are here just to hate the AE builders?

Last but not least weidex-ae was working, before the hard forks and it will work again after the hard fork, when the network is more stable!!

This is insane.
We can’t mention binance??

Btw, when you are such a supporter of binance and everything centralized, what are you doing here?
Just go to binance, google servers, facebook and have fun.
All of them have lots of traction, everything is easier there and they are fully centralized.

Binance-dex to understand it

No one wants to pay for your crazy, ae-eth is meaningless

Ohh thank you for the clarification.

Ok, thank you for the feedback.
