Welcome to BitShares!

Setting up a Gateway / new Exchange is no easy task, requires a solid Dev and Budget.

Best would be to start with: Run your own bitshares-core locally, and connect a locally running installation of bitshares-ui to it.

thank you!

I've found some stuff but its lacking detail / or I fail to comprehend whats written.
for example;

https://dev.bitshares.works/en/master/development/use_cases/uc_exchange_integration.html#usecase-exchanges

genesis.json - I found the example file from github but why the items in there exist / their purpose isn't entirely clear.
would like an example showing the steps of how to add a coin/wallet

I know a gateway must be developed to handle stuff like coin info
which I partly completed but I don't know how to fill the chart with data - cannot find anything regarding that.

All little things difficult to go thru - there is a lot of docu of bitshares but not really grouped for this specific task.

Hopefully someone can give me some hints.

genesis you won't need if you are building ontop of the BitShares Blockchain. A Gateway is a for-profit service, none of the other Gateways has contributed to the documentation so far.

I can recommend you finish the two tasks I presented you above, and come to Telegram as well (e.g. for how to run a node https://t.me/BTS_Node_Admins)

This document is mainly for external exchanges or other service providers to list/utilize BTS and other tokens on the BitShares Blockchain, although it's not purely about how to build a gateway, it contains some info. IMO a better document for the same purpose is this: https://dev.bitshares.works/en/master/bts_guide/tutorials/exchange_single_node.html . For gateways, the main business is transferring assets into and out of the BitShares blockchain, aka processing deposits and withdrawals.

I think we do need another tutorial about how to customize the GUI.

BTW this document is for setting up your own API node(s): https://dev.bitshares.works/en/master/bts_guide/tutorials/distributed-access-hosting.html

The charts will show automatically on the GUI when you have orders on the book, and have some trading activities.
