True. Are you planning on launching an exchange? One of our other businesses is working closely with a new exchange and they've done really well over the last few months to build traction but it's really really tough to draw attention away from Binance/Bitmex etc etc tough business to move into.
I think it's an endeavour that's much too big for a single programmer tbh. I mean to build something which is functional, maybe. But to build an exchange which is competitive in any kind of way is so tough for a single person. What kind of angle do you have on the idea? Are you thinking a dex or fiat-inclusive exchange? Would you like to include margin trading also?
There is an exchange (a server) running in the background (written in C++ at the moment, but mostly FPGA ready).
Then there is a Java trading app, that connected to this exchange and (in parallel) to some others. The java app displays the GUI. The exchange has no GUI by it's own.
