0.1% Fee for bitCNY, bitUSD, and bitEUR Markets?
« on: March 12, 2018, 05:49:07 pm »
The markets with bitCNY, bitUSD and bitEUR now have a 0.1 % market fee. Why the change? Were there any announcements made? Is this possibly (hopefully!?) temporary?

Thanks, after reading through some recent forum posts, I was just about to post the first link. I hadn't found the second one yet. In my opinion, changes like this need to be announced somewhere prominent before being implemented. Is there somewhere like this that I'm not aware of? I do understand that this was being discussed on the forum, but most users aren't following all the topics every day, and the thread titles don't suggest that any decisions were finalized.

I initiated an announcement to be made by the BBF.
It came late as I was on travel whole week and couldn't keep up with stuff ..

Thanks xeroc! I'm still learning how to keep track of BitShares related news - the BitShares Blockchain Foundation site is definitely one worth watching.
