Now users can access widgets of open orders, margin positions, favorite trading pairs and transaction history. 

Note that users can have a single account for several gadgets, while maintaining the settings, and the input can be done using fingerprints and face recognition.

At the same time, the themes of three colors are available in the application: blue, black and white.

In the future, developers also intend to submit applications for the Ethfinex and EOSfinex platforms.

Earlier, Bitfinex introduced a new set of open source libraries for testing and implementing trading strategies.

The Hong Kong cryptocurrency exchange Bitfinex has listed the so-called Chain Split tokens for the two implementations of the Bitcoin Cash protocol. Bitcoin Cash hardfork is planned on 15th of November.

BAB [Bitcoin ABC client] and BSV [Bitcoin SV client] tokens will be traded in pairs with Bitcoin and the US dollar. The Token Manager tool will allow users to convert their Bitcoin Cash into one of the tokens. This process is reversible, Bitfinex emphasized. At the same time, marginal trade in tokens will be unavailable.

After snapshot of the network, the corresponding coins will be automatically converted into BAB and BSV onchain tokens, and all current Bitcoin Cash holders will receive an equivalent number of coins. However, if the user has a short BCH position at the time of the snapshot, the margin will be canceled, and the borrower, if he does not have enough tokens, will have to cover the negative balance sheets until December 31.

Bitfinex also warned that support for BAB and BSV could be temporary, and that as soon as all negative balances were covered, the exchange could delist them, allowing limited time for withdrawal.
