Changpeng Zhao speaks highly of Binance upgrade

Binance CEO, Changpeng Zhao in a tweet, said that the recent upgrade is the largest upgrade to date.  Since the crypto firm launched in 2017, the firm has undergone a series of system upgrades, some of which were simple upgrades and other more noticeable changes.

Last year, Binance doled out future products and main trading to users and also lending products and crypto staking features after. Earlier this year, the platform also launched option futures trading platform.

Amidst all these updates, Zhao says today’s update is the largest yet. The most recent upgrade has a completely overhauled matching engine written in a new programming language that was developed for two years.

However, how the upgrade would affect the future of the platform was not elaborated as Zhao only said the update has readied the platform for the new wave.

Binance remains largest crypto exchange platform

Since the firm launched in 2017, its matching engine was arguably the best, which had the capacity to sustain around 1.4 million orders/seconds. The firm in the same light experienced a surge in active users and the number of markets in the last three years.

Also, high-frequency and algorithm trading strategies has been adopted by the firm recently. This strategy, alongside wide fluctuations in trading volume, has caused overload issues for the firm affecting users during critical market periods.

However, with the new upgrade, it offers probably offers a 10x performance improvement over the old matching engine, according to Zhao.
