Another leap forward for open-source crypto exchange white-label software
The big 2.1 update has arrived for HollaEx Kit!
The crypto space is on fire 🔥 lately. With higher and higher prices and much more crypto infrastructure being built, it’s hard not noticing.
At bitHolla we’ve made big strides with exchange infrastructure with HollaEx Kit and now we’ve got a new 2.1 update to announce.
In kit 2.1 crypto builders can do even more with their crypto exchange like being able to add more coins to their exchange, with more blockchain networks to select from, and an even better trading UI and UX — this white-label crypto kit just keeps on giving!
We’ve also reached a significant milestone with over 100 exchanges! It really is shaping up to be the best white-label crypto exchange solution out there.
But before we jump into the 2.1 features, let us review what has happened in the space since the last big post. As reported in September, crypto seemed on the tipping point of major adoption, and today that’s playing out in real-time.
But why? The most likely reason is due to continued money printing. This never-ending inflow of new cash is finding its way into anything and everything, which in turn leads to prices going up in everything,especially crypto.
Inflation bodes well for crypto assets, so with that said any crypto businesses today are providing a great service to people trying to escape run-away inflation.
There’s no better time than now to carve out a piece of the crypto market, big or small, the pies growing.
Businesses and savvy individuals that are integrating crypto technology today are riding the crypto wave of tomorrow.
The white-label software update for HollaEx Kit is a big one, so without further ado let’s jump in!
📦 Fully featured cloud exchange plans
Important to note, all cloud exchange users that were on previous plans ‘Pro’ and ‘Standard’ will now be automatically upgraded to the new fully featured ‘Crypto Pro’ plan and will include 1 month free of charge.
Cloud exchange operators can now pick from plans that are purpose-driven and is different from how plans worked before which were feature-driven.
The big advantage with the new cloud exchange plans is that all features will be included in the Crypto Pro and Fiat Master upgraded plans. This just means you won’t have to worry if a particular feature is right for you.
The only major decision that has to be made is if the exchange is going to be a crypto-only exchange or a fiat currency compatible exchange.
The Basic plan will remain as it is, a quick start, low-cost exchange plan with bare-bones features like built-in domain and customizations.
Note, the Fiat Master plan will require establishing a fiat banking relationship and/or fiat payment processor and a good guide about this can be found in this article under section 5 Titled ‘Decide If You Want To Accept Fiat Currency’, a highly recommended article if you are considering starting a crypto business.
DIY exchanges need not worry about the cloud plans and still can enjoy the free and flexible model of the HollaEx Kit as it is today. DIY users can just plug and trade all major coins and those coins markets will have inbuilt liquid markets like BTC/USDT.
Lastly, DIY kit users can still access all the major editing features needed to customize the exchange with the admin panel with a system for small team management.
More materials and information about the plans will be rolled out on the website. To view all plan details you only need an email, simply login here and complete the crypto exchange setup to see the plans in full.
With a new and shiny UI & UX, traders and operators alike can do crypto in style. The default kit UI has more interactive feedback on key elements such as on the orderbook. The overall layout has also been reworked to make the trading experience more intuitive and polished.
There have also been other minor facelifts like adding card/panel backgrounds and extra color hover depths to the exchange.
We aren’t stopping here and with every update, there will be more improvements to the look and feel of HollaEx Kit.
One easy to recognize UX update is the improved navigation. There will be an account sidebar with all the pages that concern the user. Also, there is an announcement bar on the top bar which will allow operators to deliver their message to their users in a nicer and cleaner way.
The UI update also includes more color opacity variance to help soften some of the harsh colors of text and divider lines whilst still keeping the 17 color theme system that is easy to edit. For impactful visual changes, you only need to change the base and label colors.
Doesn’t end with colors, everything from text and graphics can be changed. Just take the kit and reskin it as you need it.
💉 Console for injecting HTML
Sounds cool because it is cool. The code injected via console is a high-precision feature for when you want to apply a little tech know-how.
Simply input code, small or big, and the changes will magically be added to your platforms.
Like other web builders, you can simply put the code in either <HEAD> and/or <BODY> publish the changes which will appear fast and on your live exchange. Be sure to publish changes and wait for the reload to complete in order to see changes (see gif below).
Useful for adding extra services on top like a chat service to support your customers or outside analytics tools to help you understand what is happening on your platform.
📖 Backups and exchange logs
Every good exchange operator requires better management tools, and now with the downloadable logs and a backup database button, you can have peace of mind that your exchange is secured.
For exchange businesses, they can request a database dump, AKA a backup of their exchange, and once fully loaded a unique download link will be sent directly to their email.
Logs work the same way, just define the log timeframe that is needed and a link will be sent to the exchange operator.
🏠 Add a landing homepage
Instead of showing your users the login onboarding screen first, you can show a homepage.
All upgraded plans like Crypto Pro and Fiat master plans can better introduce their crypto platform to their users by activating the homepage.
Having an inbuilt homepage will save new operators time setting up a homepage with other web builders which can be notoriously difficult to make work with crypto market data and other crypto-related content. Instead, all that marketing and communication can be handled in one place, on the HollaEx Kit.
The homepage, for now, has 3 sections that can be added. First, the intro text can be edited like the rest of the text in the kit, second a coins/markets list, and third a quick trade calculator.
Rearranging the order of the sections and making background edits are some of the first editing features that can be done on the landing page with more to come.
Operators can still use an outside web builder like WordPress and in fact, we highly recommend this if resources can be allocated to that, but having an inbuilt homepage will allow for fast and cost-effective communication of the crypto project, right here, right now.
🧱 TRC-20 and BEP-20 blockchain network connected
The TRON TRC-20 blockchain is now supported as well as the Binance BEP-20 blockchain. This means depositing and withdrawing is now possible with coins on those networks.
For those creating new tokens and coins on these blockchain networks, they will now be able to add their TRC-20 and BEP-20 coin to the HollaEx network allowing not only them to add their coin to their exchange but allow other exchanges within the network to add the coin too.
This also means for those coins that are on multiple networks such as USDT there will be the option to select exactly which network to deposit and withdraw from. Thats’ helpful for when the network is congested and you just need those other options.
⚫⚪🔴 New crypto assets
Some of the most popular coins have been added to the HollaEx ecosystem.
Operators can add the new assets to their exchange so that users can hold and trade them.
Traders can enjoy trading the new coins right now on HollaEx exchange.
For those running your own crypto project, you can now offer your users XTZ, UNI, TRX, ADA, DOT, DOGE, LTC, USDC, and DAI which can be viewed by your users on the wallet page.
For exchange operators and traders, there will be new tradable markets ETH/BTC, XTZ/USDT, UNI-USDT, TRX/USDT, ADA/USDT DOT/USDT, DOGE/USDT, and LTC/USDT.
View them on the live HollaEx exchange.
🌐 More Localized
Connecting with your user base is important, which is why we’ve added even more languages like Arabic and Portuguese.
If you don’t see your language in the kit yet, you can always easily add it with the language and strings editor.Just add and name the new language and edit each string within the list to give it the exact corresponding translation for that language.
Users then will be able to select that language within their setting page. You can also easily switch the default language for your exchange within the strings and language editor.
🐞Bug fixes and general stability improvements.
The kit has fixed various bugs and improved the stability of the kit so that operates need not worry about all the blockchain stuff.
Expect faster execution speeds, fewer errors, and more efficiency. All the improvements behind the scenes allow crypto builders to focus on business.
😎 In the pipeline
There have been a few much-requested features like an easier way to add SEO features to the site. The coming SEO tool will allow operators to add keywords to help their exchange website get found and ranked high on the search engine list.
This will include things like the heading that you see in your browser tabs which typically mentions the name of the website but can also include a slogan of some sort.
In the meantime using the new console for injecting the SEO is possible and guides online can be easily found on how to do that.
Finally, new tools will be available to help diagnose problems with your exchange, this can help with a lot of the hurdles people may have when trying to connect domains and other issues. This will work similarly to other troubleshooting tools, effectively giving suggestions to help get your crypto exchange live.
And that’s it for the HollaEx Kit 2.1 major features updates! Happy crypto building everyone!
