Coygo Update 7-17-2019 Performance Improvements Preparing for a Full Launch
The Coygo team is here again to announce details on our latest update to the Coygo application. We recently launched a massive update that brought real-time order book data and analysis. Keeping and updated order book and crunching all of those numbers in real-time takes a significant amount of CPU and RAM on your machine, so this update aims to increase performance all around by reducing CPU and RAM usage wherever possible while still retaining all of that data analysis we know traders need.
If this is your first time hearing about Coygo, we provide a secure multi-exchange cryptocurrency trading terminal. Coygo is a downloadable desktop application for Windows, Mac and Linux that allows traders to connect all of their exchange accounts to have a single, secure interface to track account balances, submit trades, execute transfers between accounts, analyze market data, and lots more. Unlike most other solutions, your API credentials are **only **stored securely on your machine, we never have access to your funds or accounts. All trades and transfers are submitted directly from your machine, our servers never touch your accounts or account credentials.
If you live in the U.S. and you would like to help us shape the future of Coygo, we welcome you to sign up for our beta at coygo.app, which is currently free of charge.
Improved loading state
When initially loading the data for a market, the application is doing a lot of things in the background and as the data was made available the UI would start rendering this data. This was causing a jarring experience until the data was completely loaded. So now, we instead show a loading overlay to let the application do its thing until it has finished loading and rendering the data. In the meantime, you can enjoy a random quote from one of many famous traders or cryptocurrency personalities. Here it is in motion.
Improved loading state
One of the things that makes Coygo unique is that everything happens directly on your machine. Your API keys never touch our servers, all trades are submitted directly from your machine to the exchange. Similarly, all market data is pulled straight from the exchange to your machine. This gives you an advantage because there is no middleman to relay the data from the exchange, you get it as fast as the exchange can give it, and your API keys are never forfeited to a third party’s servers so you always remain in control.
A downside to this approach is that all of the processing of data and number crunching is happening right on your machine! So we have to be conscious of how much CPU and memory we use since we don’t have control over how powerful of a machine you have, or what other applications you’re running. This update reduces the calculations we make as much as possible, as well as reduces how much data is kept in your RAM, until it’s absolutely necessary. This should help keep the application feeling snappy and responsive, and should free up your CPU and RAM for whatever else your computer is doing.
Preparing for the end of our beta
You may also have noticed that we recently added a pricing page to our website. We have been in a beta period for over a year now and we are nearing the end, thanks to the help of our beta users and the invaluable feedback they’ve given us. The beta remains free as long as it is active, but for those wondering what our prices will be you can see below.
Coygo pricing plans
We have added a “Feature roadmap” section to our website coygo.app to give you all an idea of what to expect in the near future. We want it to be clear that we’re just getting started, and that we have ambitious plans to continue making Coygo the single best solution for digital asset traders. Stay tuned for more.
