Gypsum Product Release

A guide to everything the frontend team has been up to recently

Gypsum Product Release

This post is another entry in our regular series in which we fill you in twice a month on all the front-end updates we’ve made across our dApps and website. Stay tuned for more updates!

Synths page in Synthetix.Exchange

We’ve added a new Synths page to sX, which displays information about each asset (priced against USD). We’ll be continuing to add more information to these pages.

Dashboard updates

We have added extra data tiles to the Synthetix Dashboard, including how many SNX staking rewards are available to be claimed in the current fee period, available sUSD in the Depot, and more! Also, the open interest graph now displays a bar relative to that specific asset’s long/short ratio, rather than relative to the Synth ecosystem’s ratio. The “Buy SNX” and “Buy sUSD” pages have also been removed.

We have also removed most of the API endpoints in favour of the graph paving the way for the dashboard to be open sourced and deployed to IPFS. In particular the sUSD and SNX price charts are now coming from the Uniswap subgraph meaning they are far more accurate.

Switching off user tracking

There was a recent Twitter conversation about how DeFi projects should not be tracking users with Google Analytics or other tools, which was something Synthetix core contributors had spoken about the previous week. Since then, we have removed all user tracking tools, and will offer a 50 SNX bounty to anyone who can identify a significant tracking instrument on our sites we can still remove.

iETH rewards integration on Mintr

We’ve added the iETH staking contract to the Mintr UI, allowing people to participate in the neutral debt pool initiative easily.

Migrating L2.Synthetix.Exchange features to L1 sX

A range of small improvements that were added to L2.Synthetix.Exchange for the OVM demo have also been migrated to Synthetix.Exchange on L1.

TypeScript introduction

We’ve started using TypeScript in our dApps for rapid development iterations and catching more bugs.

Assets repo for developers

When developers build on the Synthetix protocol, they often need the visual assets for our various tokens. We’ve added SVG’s for all our assets to a repo where anyone can access them.

Dismissable banners

Any banners displayed at the top of our dApps can now be dismissed.
