Alpha Impact 2021 Q3 August-September Technical Updates (and more Q4 plans)
August and September flew by, and we’re back with another update! Be prepared as this is several weeks’ worth of updates. We’ve got some big announcements here, and a fresh upgrade to Alpha Impact just hit browsers near you. Read on to see what’s in store!
User experience upgraded
We’re happy to announce the homepage of Alpha Impact’s app now has the option to show a global feed and another option to “cut the noise” and show followed trader feeds! In August, our platform coded images into posts so users can upload files in jpegs, png, and more. In September, our beta testers requested hyperlinks to get preview images. You can now paste links directly onto Alpha Impact to see an image preview. Not only that, we’re planning to integrate GIPHY on our platform so users can comment or post GIF status updates with the click of a button. After feedback, the dev team added a new notifications indicator to alert users of new notifications in the side navigation bar. We also added a user feedback channel in the side navigation bar. The front-end search bar was implemented for users in August however has limited search functionality. The front-end search bar now allows multi-search (now users can find traders, posts, and hashtags). Hashtags are now clickable. The announcement banner on the app has been reformatted into a carousel and has an auto-update on Medium to regularly capture new articles posted by the team at Alpha Impact.
Trading Performance includes more stats
The trader ranking leaderboard now incorporates Sharpe Ratio (Risk-adjusted returns) so users can see the expected return on investment while removing the trader’s rate of risk. The portfolio composition page has a checkbox added that allows users to hide small balances that constitute <0.01% of their portfolio. All coins listed on Binance on the portfolio will now have icons/logos for a better user experience. The portfolio table has been upgraded to show the live asset price (For example BTC worth US$47000). The Plankton trading competition is now available on the website! Log in to Alpha Impact’s web app and click on ‘Competitions’ in the side navigation bar. The competition begins tonight!
Users can now invite their friends to Alpha Impact via email using individual referral codes. Traders new to Binance.com can now sign up on Binance with a 10% bonus when using Alpha Impact’s referral code to link the portfolio to Alpha Impact.
Stay Tuned for Future Updates
That’s not all. We’re planning to integrate GIPHY on our platform so users can comment or post GIF status updates with the click of a button. Our current trading notifications will have a manual copy button. Trading signals will allow basic copy trading features (allowing users to copy the trades of others manually). IMPACT Wallet will be integrated into the Alpha Impact app for easy transactions. There will be membership tier segregation with more features on higher tiers. This is in collaboration with NFTs we are creating with copy trading utility. Since Binance.com has successfully been integrated with trade signals, the next exchange integration we are working with is FTX.
Thanks to our community for their feedback and support, we’ll be doing product updates bi-weekly from now on!
