According to the Bitfinex crypto exchange platform changelog, its v15.7 update includes substantial user interface improvements and bug fixes. Also, some issues with the Bitfinex Pulse social media platform have been resolved.

Improvements and fixes

On June 5, 2020, a new version of the Bitfinex platform, v.15.7, was released to upgrade the trading experience for its users.

With this release, the platform interface checks for new messages every 5 seconds, so, the interaction between Bitfinex Pulse users will be conducted with very low latency. Now, traders can enable sound notifications for incoming messages.

Also, traders can share their trading ideas by attaching screenshots of TradingView charts. The link preview feature also enhances the UI of dialogues in Bitfinex Pulse. With the v15.7 update, the cashtags (a version of tickers) for cryptocurrencies are supported by the system.

Minor bug fixes resolved the timezone management issues and errors in private messaging and chart demonstration.

Technical progress doesn't care about lawsuits

As reported earlier this week by U.Today Crypto News, the Bitfinex platform upgraded its process of USDT transactions within its mechanism. Now, all transfers with the most-demanded stablecoin will be carried out through a Plasma second-layer scalability infrastructure by the OMG Network.

Yesterday, on June 4, 2020, Bitfinex and Tether officially denounced a 'baseless' lawsuit and highlighted that their opponents are trying to damage the whole cryptocurrency community. 

The plaintiffs accused Bitfinex and Tether of market manipulation. According to Stuart Hoegner, General Counsel for Bitfinex and Tether, 

plaintiffs have dreamed up an unproven conspiracy theory involving three large cryptocurrency exchanges and a secret scheme to manipulate the cryptocurrency market. 

Mr. Hoegner also emphasized that Bitfinex and Tether will continue to 'vigorously' defend themselves as well as their customers, stakeholders and all of the crypto community.
