5 mins read

“There are better starters than me but I’m a strong finisher.” - Usain Bolt
It’s been 15 months to get to this point, and we’re just a week from completing the exchange. After reaching next week’s deadline, all development for exchange launch will be completed and we can focus on testing, fine-tuning and debugging before launching the testnet trading competitions beginning at the end of October or early September.

Although it’s taken a long time to get here and we’ve seen some new arrivals in the derivatives sector since we’ve kept to our timeline to ensure that we deliver the best user experience possible. Testnet will be carried over 2 months. When it comes to our work, we’re serious about getting it done right.

At the end of the day, it’s not how you start, but how you finish that matters.
