- Fixed the bug that app crashes occasionally when scanning the QR code;

- Support iPhone 12;
- Fixed the problem that FaceID/TouchID cannot be turned off in the App after biometric identification is turned off in the system;
- Fixed the precision of liquidity mining;
- Added new function of hiding trading pairs with low liquidity/volume. The hidden trading pairs can still be accessed through the operator’s page.
The website of ViteX Exchange (https://vitex.net/) has been updated with the following changes:

- Display VX emittance curve and the current release progress;
- Added VX dividend calculator. Users can input a number to see the estimated dividend earns on an annual/semi-annual/monthly/weekly/daily basis.

Vite Developer Bounty Launch
The Vite Labs foundation will publish new developer bounty tasks from time to time, and provide rewards in VITE. The goal is to encourage our global community to partake in developing the Vite ecosystem.
The first bounty is related to a search function for full nodes. Click below for more details!
On October 20, liquidity mining for the HTR/BTC trading pair received a 3x reward boost. Traders that make HTR/BTC resting orders will receive three times the VX reward as they would normally get.
On October 28, ViteX API package underwent a significant upgrade that increased the quota for API usage as an incentive to attract and retain liquidity from quantitative market makers.
ViteX to Suspend Display for Certain Trading Pairs
The ViteX team is always looking to provide users with a better trading experience and protect the rights and interests of investors. As such, we recently worked with operators to limit the display of certain trading pairs. In general, operators should monitor activeness of projects after their listings. When an operator sees that a project is no longer actively developing, it should suspend the display of relevant trading pairs for such project.
Note that since ViteX is a decentralized exchange, the trading pairs still live on the Vite chain. The ViteX team is merely making changes to the user interface to disable the display of these trading pairs. Therefore, undisplayed trading pairs are not “delisted.” Users may access them via either a third-party community-built website, or entering URLs on vite.net (example: https://x.vite.net/trade?symbol=XYZ-000_ABC-000). Also, since users custody their own tokens (Vite-wrapped), the security of these assets are not affected.
