Engineering at Futureswap

Engineering team and processes

We're a team of 4 engineers with an array of experiences. We do daily standups, collaborate on goals during weekly or bi-weekly sprints, and reflect on our outcomes at the end of each sprint.

We believe that a clean and well-tested codebase allows us to execute faster. Pull requests are created on GitHub and pushed up after a review with continuous deployment.

Technical Challenges

-Live, accurate, and secure price data.

-Moving away from order books and using AMM’s.

-Creating innovative financial mechanisms that keep markets balanced.

-Developing a fast and responsive frontend that abstracts complexities of the market.

-Building a peer to peer node network with Byzantine Fault Tolerance.

-Evaluating and moving towards an Ethereum scaling system for cheaper / faster transactions.

Projects you might work on
  • In order to stabilize pricing on our platform, we need to make it easy for users to arbitrage out price imbalances. Build an arbitrage bot that anyone can easily run profitably.

  • Build a distributed system that incorporates a slashing mechanism for those who attempt to cheat. Nodes must communicate with each other to deliver price data in near-real-time.

  • Build a frontend that creates a real-time trading experience.

  • Write a lambda function that monitors Ethereum gas prices in order to give users the most accurate rates.

  • Design an incentives program that fairly distributes incentives to users that engage on the platform.
