Three reporting tools have been added to help traders better track their activities.
All newly added reports can be displayed by day / month / year and include a pair filter that separates the results based on pairs or currency.
1 – Trading volume report: This report shows the amount of volume traded over a period of time, so users can filter by pair as needed
2 – Loan report: This new feature shows users how their funding strategy works. The results are presented as daily returns, cumulative returns over the time period and as a percentage return on an annual basis.
3 –Trading Cost Report: The benefits report shows the benefits paid by the user during selected time periods, so users can filter by pair as needed.
User interface and usability
Bitfinex is known for having one of the best UI / UX in the market. We are always striving to improve the user experience as evidenced by the addition of some new features to the report section.
1 –Filter columns: Users can filter the columns they want to see so that they have a smaller screen, removing information that is not needed for analysis.
This feature can be enabled by clicking on the filter columns and then selecting the desired columns as shown in this video.
2- Mobile view: As mobile becomes more and more important to our users, we added a new mobile responsive theme to display the report information. It is available on the app and website.
3 – Filter Improvements: Additional filters have been edited to be simpler. Changes can be summarized as follows:
- Capital letters no longer considered
- Addition of a reset button
- Search function for up to 3 pages, so that a user can decide whether to continue, avoiding long waiting times.
At Bitfinex, we are very proud of our community and we are happy with the results of our referral program https://www.bitfinex.com/affiliate. In addition to the https://affiliate.bitfinex.com/ tracker, a new section has been added to the reporting framework that tracks all earnings from the affiliate program.
In this new section, users can check which transactions match each order.
To check this feature, users need to click on the desired order ID.
