Augur Front-End Update – March 1st

Augur Front-End Update – March 1st

We’re working on finishing up the re-skin of the create market pages this week. Our testing suite is nearing 95% coverage, and expect this to be finished up in the next few weeks. The new landing page has also been receiving some good feedback, and we encourage you to send us your thoughts.

Our remaining front-end issues are slimming down, with majority of the remaining tasks being related to skinning. Our standalone Ethereum key management library, keythereum, has been shared with an auditor. Keythereum is a small, isolated, but important piece of code – so it seemed like a natural place to start our audits. We’ll be expanding the audit to include the contracts and the other relevant parts of the middleware over the coming weeks.

Joey wrapped up some miscellaneous bugs this week, along with the addition of a function allowing more trades to be executed on-chain with backup trades if some were already filled. Also, instead of having to commit to specific orders, you now just commit to a market, outcome, or direction while doing the trade commit and reveal. He will be also speaking at the MIT Bitcoin Expo next week, so be sure to say hi if you’re in the area!
