Zeta Bi-Weekly Update (06/20/21)

Hey ZetArmy! We hope this article finds you somewhere peaceful, like your backyard, a beautiful field, or even quite possibly on the toilet. Lol. We’re stoked to bring you this week’s bi-weekly update.

In this article, we will discuss an overall project and community update, as well as insight into our plans for the next few weeks. Let’s get into it!

Project Update

The Zeta team is now all hands on deck building version 2 of Zeta. On the product side, we have run a couple of pieces of user testing — the first being UX testing with some of our awesome community members who provided great feedback, which will shape the look and feel of our application. We also ran a broad survey to help us understand who our community is and their needs. These will be used to inform our product and ensure we build something that the community loves.

Concerning our development of V2 (vanilla options) the team has made immense progress integrating with Serum to leverage their incredible matching engine.

Meanwhile, the quants have been hard at work building a robust pricing system for our automated Options Market Maker. The frontend team has also started their overhaul of the web app.

We’re looking forward to the next couple of weeks as the team knuckles down and pumps out some progress.

Community Update

Zeta CM’s are always looking for ways to connect with our growing community. We have been dedicating a decent amount of time to finding new and engaging ways to display our fire content🔥 We have some exciting things in the works!

We are looking forward to holding Twitter Spaces here in the next couple weeks. Join us and get to know the team as we talk about what’s trending and more. Looking to have some projects on with us as well for some friendly banter. If you’re interested, please feel free to reach out!

Like we hinted in the last bi-weekly update, subscribe to our YouTube now if you haven’t already. We are releasing videos soon. Kick-starting our YouTube is a dream. As always, feel free to share your feedback and input. If there are any specific things you would like to see, tweet as us and let us know what’s up! You can also reach out to our Discord feedback channel as well.

As for upcoming events, one of our core contributors, Tristan, will be speaking at this year’s Solana Breakpoint Conference in Lisbon, Portugal. We hope to see you there this November!

What’s Next?

As for the product development side, we will be testing the UX with some pro traders to ensure we have coverage for a range of audiences. We’ll continue to power through with the development of this platform, too, and look forward to dropping some sneak peeks soon.

Continue to connect with us on our Twitter, Discord, Instagram, and YouTube, so you don’t miss a thing! New and fun content coming soon 🔥

Asks

We’ll be having more community calls to level up meaningful engagement and share our progress, so be sure to tune in and help build Zeta Markets with us!

We appreciate you all! Now, go do something nice for yourself like drink water or eat food. We can’t have a dehydrated community! ️Have a stellar weekend❤️
