Charting revamp

The charting revamp is made possible by the awesome work by the github user rrag in making react-stockcharts, a complete financial plotting solution for React using the D3 library. Some of the new features included in this release are drawing of trend lines and fibonacci retracements, as well as support for toggling several different indicators like MACD, simple and exponential moving averages and volume averages.

Removal of OPEN.X prefix

The Openledger backed OPEN.X assets have established themselves as the primary non-smartcoin assets on Bitshares, so in an effort to simplify the user experience I've decided to remove the OPEN. prefix of these assets. OPEN.BTC thus becomes just BTC.

New dashboard with hidden prefix

Muh it's ok, not very impressive, I saw other UI much better ... Wait ... What ?
It's a decentralised exchange ???? You mean fully decentralised in a blockchain ? And it's that polished ??? Wait ... What ? 3 sec confirmation block, so it's real time trading ? OMG that's revolutionary !
The market cap is crazy high no ? What 10M$ only ??? This shit is going to be skyrocketing to the moon when people will realise !

Nice charts.. But removing OPEN prefix is very risky for BitShares platform. There is issuer who guaranty something. BitShares should not keep risk of one failed issuer. That solution makes the whole thing centralised beast, and that is not good.

This release is well ahead of the competition but misleading asset names are setting a bad precedent.

Great news, I look forward to upload the iOS version, probably tomorrow as you say. It look fantastic! Namaste :)

The new charts and drawing tools look great.
This is already far superior to most centralized exchanges out there.

Wrong logos:
BTS:BTC
bitSILVER:BTS

The bts:btc logo is a manual override showing btc icon instead of BTS.

And I just don't have one for bit Silver so it defaults to the BTS icon

Yep looks great, thanks!

will provide one upcoming days ..

Great work and updates. Thank you!

Great work and updates...Looking forward to try it out

Thank you for your work. I am just downloading.

These new charts look amazing!!!

Great to see the following too "All open orders, collateral and debt are now included when estimating total account value on the account screen" :)

Great work SVK!!

This is great, however won't the change from open.btc to btc cause confusion for other BTC EBA holders?

On the contrary it should cause much less confusion as it looks more like a regular exchange. Other assets like TRADE.BTC , CASH.BTC etc will still have their prefix.

What about bitBTC --> doesn't it usually have the 'bit' hidden, potentially causing confusion between the EBA & MPA?

No it doesn't, in the GUI it's always displayed as bitUSD.

Great improvements! I'm stoked and very happy for the platform to continue developing well :)

I've been reading up on bitshares lately too. I'm still trying to figure you how to use the platform and everything though. Hopefully, I can find some tutorials around... but this looks amazing

Love all the amazing work you are all doing. I cannot thank you enough.
