- Merge request queue of order placing and order canceling into one single queue to improve consistency and robustness.
- Improve order placement through ViteX API by adding aggregate interface to reduce the number of interface called and latency.
All full nodes and SBPs are required to upgrade on time!
The cryptocurrency mainnet operates according to certain rules. To improve network performance or correct errors, it is periodically made changes. A hard fork is changes that are not compatible with previous versions of programs that support the cryptocurrency network and in order to continue to mine cryptocurrency, miners need to update the software.
In some situations, as a result of a hard fork, a completely new cryptocurrency may appear, as happened with Bitcoin Cash.
