We are excited to announce the release of Injective Solstice V2.
This upgrade involves a number of major UI and backend changes that lead to a far superior trading experience for everyone.
Background on Solstice V1
After working on our initial public release for tireless months, we finally released the Solstice Testnet on November 30th. This was immediately met with unbelievable community enthusiasm as well as universal acclaim. Our story was covered by major publications globally such as the likes of TechCrunch.
Over the past few days, we have seen our Testnet waitlist grow exponentially with users vying to gain early access on a daily basis. Perhaps, most surprisingly we managed to reach the daily testnet cap limits in under an hour every single day since the inception of Solstice. The interest to gain early access only seemed to surge further after the addition of gold synthetic commodities on Injective, which was recently covered by CoinTelegraph.
This past week has enabled us to also hear feedback directly from the community. We opened up a live Discord channel to allow anyone to come and speak directly to our developers about any issue or bugs they were facing. We integrated metrics for every request made on our UI, while also recording any error that our users may have encountered — allowing us to rapidly intervene and rectify problems with ease.
However, our team at Injective decided to go above and beyond. Before releasing Solstice, we had already begun working on a major UI revamp. The plan was to gather feedback from the community during the V1 phase and eventually to release upgrades early next year. But the excitement from the community propelled us to work essentially 24/7 to roll out the changes as soon as possible.
We have far exceeded all of our initial goals and are ecstatic to share with you Solstice V2, which provides an unparalleled trading experience for everyone. We have managed to surpass every exchange in the market today, seamlessly integrating the best features from centralized exchanges while retaining a dynamic decentralized backend.
Here we will quickly provide a high-level overview of some of the most salient changes that encompass the V2 release. We highly recommend everyone to try trading on Solstice V2 in order to truly experience all of the changes.
Color Palette Revamp
We have entirely changed the colors on the exchange to offer a much more stylish look and feel. Darker undertones coupled with vibrant colors lead to a heightened visual appeal while increasing practical applications for both novice and institutional traders.
Typeface and Numerals
The fonts across our DEX were altered to create a more elegant look with better overall visibility. Numbers were updated to a monospace font to increase readability as well.
Enhanced Home Screen Market Details
We now offer further market details on the home screen, which includes both percent change and volume. This can help traders to quickly attain a market snapshot.
Solstice V2 now includes tooltips throughout the DEX which provide helpful explanations for new traders. The tooltips are toggled simply by hovering over the “?” icons on the DEX.
Dynamic Mobile Responsiveness
Our UI is now fully responsive across any and all platforms. You can now trade on Injective from any device, whether that is an iPhone, Android, a tablet, a laptop, or an external monitor. This vastly increases the versatility of the platform and enables users to make trades on the go.
Refactored Market Statistics
Entering a market page will allow users to view comprehensive market details. This includes the following: Last Price, Mark Price, Percent Change, Volume, 24h High, 24h Low, Funding Rate, and Next Funding Countdown. There are many more details which you can see upon entering Solstice V2.
Market Overview Slider
A market overview slider is present in every single market. This shows other markets and their last traded price so that users can easily switch between markets at the click of a button. This creates a much more integrated trading experience.
Solstice V2 marks the culmination of both our team’s rapid iterations and the meaningful feedback we have been able to receive from the community. Please be sure to try out this new version and let us know your thoughts.
We can’t wait to see you on Solstice V2.
