COSS exchange was taken offline on January 7th 2020 with immediate notice to all users. The plan was to begin migration to a white label platform after proceeding with account-level snapshots. The migration was halted mid-way as COSS entered and finalised acquisition negotiations, followed by audits of the existing technology, user data and wallets. With the audits completed, the new management decided to do away with the old exchange platform and introduce a much more advanced engine for its users. This is the platform which goes online this week with many added features including derivatives with up to 100x leverage, as well as an Exchange Swap Engine for instant conversions.
We apologise for the downtime — unconditionally.
The decision to shut down the exchange was not in our control and we, unfortunately, were handed over a shut exchange. We have done our best to re-enable the exchange for all users quickly and assure you that such missteps will be avoided at all costs in the future. The new COSS is a group of investors, professional traders, and financial technology specialists. Who strongly believes in the original vision of COSS — a one-stop platform for modern digital assets whose success is dependent on and shared with all its users — a unique approach to decentralised finance.
The idea is in line with the original concept of creating a shared ‘digital economy’ instead of mirroring a system where the traditional institutional lenders and service providers benefit while the people pay fees to use and access their own assets.
The investment group has appointed a board of directors and is currently assessing nominations for the role of CEO. The board will leave the day-to-day operations to the CEO and their team with a clear mandate — to restore and build COSS the brand for success. Rune and the previous technology, operations and marketing teams will no longer be involved with COSS. We appreciate their work in the past and wish them all the best for future endeavours. Satyarth will continue to remain on board with us and support the community management, marketing and PR team.
New Technology Partner
The new management has carefully evaluated several options to ensure COSS has a stable, scalable and continuously improving technology platform. We have partnered with XHUB — a financial and trading technology company. The XHUB team has vast experience in working with brokers, hedge funds, and proprietary trading firms. XHUB maintains one of the largest cryptocurrency liquidity and order routing systems in the industry, and a trading platform which has been exclusively and extensively used in-house by large trading firms. The XHUB technology team will extend its support to COSS API consumers and encourage them to keep building trading applications for the community. Consumers will have access to extensive historical and real-time market data which will allow them to create advanced strategies supported by back-testing.
A general roadmap of the board’s vision for the immediate future is included below. We remain focused on ensuring that COSS provides a reliable trading platform for retail and professional traders alike.

Roadmap will be updated in the first and third quarter every year, and will cover plans for that period. Relaunch FAQ The exchange will be operational on 4th March, 2020. To adhere to existing anti-money laundering, counter-terrorism financing and know your customer regulations, existing users will need to complete level-1 KYC. This can be done with a single government-issued photo identity document. Final phase account audit clearance is subject to KYC approval. COS token trading will be available on the COS_USD pair. More pairs will be added as trading activity improves. Maker and taker fees will be set at 0.05% and 0.1% respectively. Trading fee discount and negative maker fees will be discontinued. An updated COS holding based fee tier system may be introduced in the future. The Fee Split Allocation (FSA) dashboard is under development. However, FSA will be tracked and accrue from day one. COS held in private wallets will need to be re-identified and linked to your new user accounts once the dashboard is launched. We will initiate a delisting procedure for some assets. A complete list of pairs and the withdrawal process for the same will be released at a later date. Crypto deposits will remain at 0 fees. A fee schedule for crypto withdrawals will be published on the website. Fiat deposits will be available via Epay and transfers from Epay wallet to COSS will be at 0 fees. Deposits through credit and debit cards will be introduced at 4% fees. We will add more fiat options including withdrawals in the coming weeks. Thank you for all your support and feedback. We are expecting a rush to access COSS accounts and will complete verification for all applicants as quickly as possible. We apologise for any unforeseen delays during the process. You can reach us on [[email protected]](mailto:[email protected]) in case you require any further assistance.
Taken from telegram group chat. Hi, Zedric! We are working on our global future marketing strategy related to Managers and investors acquisition. By the way, we hired more people in the marketing department. Soon their photos will be on the website. As for near plans, as you may have heard on 1 April our Alpha will be launched. We are working on activities which will help to attract brokers. Our first priority now is B2B marketing and attracting brokers. Without Alpha we can't work with them, so they are waiting for our release. We don't launch any activities to attract investors and traders because it has no sense now. Besides that, we are planning PR campaign related to Alpha. We will spread the news about the Alpha release in main media resources (trading, forex, crypto etc.) and launch an advertising campaign to increase awareness. After that our main goal still is to increase the number of brokers which will use the platform. Cause they will also bring traders and investors with themselves and will help to test platform before release 1.0.
