These two groups would be looking trading’s aspects, for example strategies and sustainability, diversity and specifically within KyberNetwork's early-stage exchange model. They have developed the roadmap for three-month. They will hope to find potential problems and solutions for exit from them.

 

We see the power of [decentralised exchanges] to influence adoption of the technology by mainstream users. Berkeley students, energetically focused on innovation and creative problem-solving, are an excellent group to help extend KyberNetwork's ideas and creative energy.

The team are looking four parameters: how many tokens users can transact at one moment, how long reserv rebuild, how many times to lock-up for reserve, price of token. Students, faculty, employees, researchers, engineers and others are participant in this research.

The hypothesis is about potentially unable of centralized exchanges to handle large volumes of users and decentralized would be trading platforms as a better alternative.

Chairman of the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) Jay Clayton said that bitcoin needs more regulation for listing on large exchanges. It is reported by CNBC.

If [investors] think there’s the same rigor around that price discovery as there is on the Nasdaq or New York Stock Exchange ... they are sorely mistaken. We have to get to a place where we can be confident that trading is better regulated.
 

Jay Clayton

Chairman, SEC

He was talking about listing conditions for bitcoin itself, and not derivatives, such as CME futures.
