Platform News

Over the past month we have been putting in extra hours in optimizing the Exchange, both in code and server infrastructure and we now go forward knowing that site performance will be satisfying to our community. We are currently uploading Instant Trade functionality, which makes the process of buying and selling more accessible to less experienced community members.

Over the month of September we will be releasing our updated whitepaper which contains an exciting announcement regarding the utility of our native exchange token, ARTIS. Be sure to follow us on our social media channels (links at bottom of this email) and to be on the lookout for this announcement.

Market Sentiments

The price of Bitcoin remains in the consolidation zone around $10,000 (ZAR 160,000 – 170,000) as the market awaits further developments in the #1 cryptocurrency. We are seeing a pick-up in buying interest which signals to us that the market is expecting price gains in bitcoin.

ARTIS and AARP (Artis Affiliate Rewards Program)

We share trading fees with our community through AARP. To enable AARP all you need to do is own and hodl ARTIS, our native exchange token. The earnings are automatically credited to your account daily based on the last 24-Hour's trading volume and is paid out in each currency that trading fees are collected in. You can view your full detailed AARP history by visiting “My AARP History”. The AARP History page gives a summary of pay out per 1 ARTIS and your total pay outs.


We are giving away 1,000 ARTIS for all first time deposits. If you have made a 1st time ZAR deposit and you are yet to receive 1,000 ARTIS for this – it’s because we need to log an appropriate ARTIS/ETH address on your account. To do this, please visit your “Deposit ETH/ARTIS” page and the system will log an address for you. Our admins will then pick up the appropriate address to send your ARTIS to. Remember that ARTIS pays out daily and you can see your payouts by following “My AARP History”
