The launch of BitBay 3.0

3 months ago

On 23rd of September you are going to get the possibility to use the newest update of our exchange - BitBay 3.0. It is the effect of our team hard work, that took us months of careful testing. In order to make you feel comfortable during this event, we want to share with you essential information about the upcoming migration to 3.0 version.

Due to significant fluctuations of a Bitcoin exchange rate in recent days, the release of BitBay 3.0 has been postponed. We made this decision based on your opinions and concerns that limited access to the platform during this period could be very unfavorable for you. We do not want the platform to be inaccessible at the time of price change as it could cause losses for our customers.

Furthermore, based on your suggestions, we decided to present you a 3.0 demo before launching a new version of the platform. We encourage you to test, comment, and discuss your opinions with us. We hope that this will make the final version even better.

Logging in to 3.0 version

After the migration to 3.0 version logging in will require the same data that were used to log in to 2.0 version. For security reasons, you will be asked to change your password during your first log in.

===========================

Change of cryptocurrency deposits address

CAUTION! Cryptocurrency deposits addresses ARE GOING TO BE CHANGED. Booking transfers send to previous addresses will take place up to the 1st of October. However, delays are possible. For this reasons, immediately after launching 3.0 platform, we highly recommend to log in and download new addresses for cryptocurrency deposits.

===========================

Access to data from 2.0 version

After launching new platform we will make possible to access the data from the previous version so as to copy and archive account data. We will share more information via email and articles after the start of 3.0 platform.

===========================

API

In order to make all your apps working properly, API form 2.0 platform will be supported until the 31st of October. If you use it, the "trades" method will not support the "since" parameter, and in the "tid" response it will not be valid (the value returned will always be 1). The 2.0 API will also not support reverse transaction sorting. Therefore, we recommend using new API that will include websocket communication. Documents regarding new API will be given along with the new version.

After launching our new platform you will be given the possibility to trade in following cryptocurrencies: Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Litecoin, Ethereum, Lisk, Dash, GameCredits.
