Whaleclub v5.3–Our Biggest Update Yet

At Whaleclub, we’ve made it our mission to allow anyone to trade the financial markets using just bitcoin.

On January 22, 2017, Whaleclub live trading marked its first birthday. In that first year, over 15,000 users traded $800M worth of bitcoin in volume. It’s a massive milestone and we couldn’t be more grateful to our customers–thank you!

Today we’re excited to unveil Whaleclub v5.3, a huge product update loaded with incredible new features and improvements. With this update, Whaleclub is faster, more powerful, and more secure than ever.

Market Sentiment

Whaleclub’s gorgeous trading dashboard now displays real-time market sentiment. Just add a market to your watch list to track its long/short volume ratios.

The sentiment discs will light up in green when someone opens a long position or closes a short on the market in question, and will light up in red when someone opens a short position or closes a long.

Right above your watch list, a new Trending section displays the day’s most traded markets.

Buy/Sell Stops

Whaleclub now supports buy and sell stops. You can now place long orders above and short orders below the current market price without needing to execute at market. Those orders get filled once the market price reaches them.

New Trading Panel

Whaleclub v5.3 comes with a drastically improved trading panel for both classic and turbo trading.

It now remembers where you last left it if you drag it around, even when you logout and come back later. It has new, subtle tooltips to guide you in placing your order. And you can now minimize the panel with a click to keep it from obfuscating your view of the rest of the dashboard.

Trade Confirmation

You can now have Whaleclub ask you for confirmation before opening or closing a trade at market price. This comes in handy to avoid unintentional mouse slips and “fat finger” trades.

To enable Trade Confirmation, click on the Settings icon in the bottom right corner of your dashboard to bring up the new Dashboard Settings panel.

Whaleclub Wallet

Whaleclub v5.3 comes with an entirely redesigned wallet experience. You can now easily deposit, withdraw, and browse all of your transactions, including referral commissions and bonuses, all in one place.

We’ve also improved the deposit and withdrawal experience and completely redesigned the account settings section with a focus on speed and ease-of-use:

Demo Trading: Reload Balance

You can now reload your demo balance if it drops below the starting demo balance of 5BTC, right from your dashboard. Just click on the reload icon next to your balance.

Bye-Bye, Notifications

We decommissioned notifications, including volatility notifications, for now. The Trending and Sentiment sections should help you identify opportunities across markets more quickly and easily than notifications ever did.

Help Center

Our all-new Help Center features a searchable knowledgebase with topics ranging from security to account management to turbo trading. If you still can’t find an answer to your question, our support team is just a click away.

Getting Started Guide

We’ve reorganized and redesigned our beginner’s tutorial with a focus on ease-of-use and clarity. The Getting Started Guide is now organized into six topics and has everything you need to know to start trading on Whaleclub.

And a whole lot more

As always, we’ve continued to make further improvements and additions in response to your ever-amazing feedback.

Behind the scenes, everything’s been sped up and made more secure. We’ve upgraded software across our servers to reduce lag and make trading (including turbo trading) execution faster than ever before. We’ve sped up deposit detection, withdrawals, the price charts, the mobile app, and customer balance testing.

There’s a whole lot more packed in this new Whaleclub update that we hope you’ll check out for yourself. Over 89 bugs were fixed to help streamline and speed up everything from signing up to trading to managing your account. A lot of redesign work went into our Home, Markets, and Press pages to simplify and focus our message regarding the value Whaleclub brings to the table.

At Whaleclub, all product updates begin and end with listening to our customers, and this one is no different.

Our aim is to provide customers with a stellar trading experience. It’s our commitment to you to keep our products fresh, easy, and blazing-fast through constant updates and improvements.

We sincerely hope you enjoy using this new Whaleclub update as much as we enjoyed working on it.

If you have any questions or concerns or need assistance, you can reach out to us directly at hello@whaleclub.co.

Happy trading!
— The Whaleclub Team
