Augur deployment on the main Ethereum network will require the migration of all current REP token balances to a new REP token contract. It will happen on July 9. The automatic migration of REP balances will kick off with an indefinite freeze of the current REP token contract. The new token contract will be placed inside the genesis Augur universe.

REP holders and users of exchanges (centralized or non-custodial decentralized) don't need to take any actions to prepare for the migration. For special kinds of exchanges like EtherDelta, ForkDelta, IDEX and OasisDEX the users are advised to withdraw their REP funds from the exchange contract until July 9.

The migration should not take more than a few hours, and once Augur is deployed and migration is finalized, the platform goes live on the main Ethereum network. As for the market parameters of Augur, at the moment of publication they are as follows:

Average price 38.88 USD
Market cap 427,666,800 USD
Volume (24H) 24,545,100 USD

Uniswap protocol developers announced the launch of the second version of a decentralized platform in the next quarter.

Among the new features of Uniswap v2:

  •  any ERC20 token can be pooled directly with any other ERC20 token
  • instant swaps, providing for the possibility of withdrawing “as many coins as you like” for, for example, arbitrage and margin trading operations
  • An improved pricing model, which provides the oracles for determining the market rate at the beginning of each block, immediately before the conclusion of transactions

The updated decentralized platform is already being tested on the Ethereum networks Ropsten, Kovan, Rinkeby and Goerli.

In general, the popularity of Uniswap continues to grow - since the beginning of 2020, the trading volume on this platform has increased by 192%.
