Project participants develop tools that can convert private APIs of any service into any standardized format. This will allow the transfer of data between any two providers, using existing tools and mechanisms.

At the moment, developers have created "adapters" for seven different services in five different data formats.

The developers of Bisq presented a new version of the decentralized exchange (v1.0).

The project repository on GitHub notes that version 1.0 is the most important milestone in the development of the Bisq platform.

Thus, the new version of the software implements a decentralized autonomous organization mechanism (Bisq DAO). It allows exchange users to directly participate in project management.

For example, those who contribute to the development of Bisq may receive rewards in BSQ tokens. Also, the use of these assets can reduce trade commissions by 90%.

Among other changes - bug fixes, minor improvements to the user interface.
