Wireframes

The process of wireframing Fusion Markets was critical in order to ensure the smooth combination of beauty and functionality.

UI/UX design

Subsequent to the creation of wireframes, we moved on to the design process. The focus here was to merge the visual and functional aspects of Fusion Markets.

For brokers

Authentication

The Fusion Markets platform can be accessed only by approved brokers. This protects the sensitive information from unwarranted access by third-party agents.

Deals

Brokers, on behalf of clients, can arrange and complete trading deals on the platform through participation in the process.

Clients

The list of clients is located on a separate tab, where brokers can manage them and monitor information concerning individual clients.

Stats

It’s easy to check essential stats, such as commissions and payments. Additionally, balances can be filtered on the basis of currency or commodity.

For staff

Partners

The Fusion Markets’ staff can manage the broker list, approve or decline the applications, and ban users if necessary.

Reports

The platform generates easy-to-use reports that contain statistics about brokers, deals, commissions and sales.

Management

The executives of Fusion Markets can manage staff directly from the platform, assign managers to brokers and control their levels of access.

Challenges and Solutions

The Fusion Markets project presented certain challenges, as described below:

Implementing static IPs

Challenge:

On the old Heroku hosting system, it was difficult to implement static IPs that would offer access to databases. Such IPs are important because they heighten the security of the service.

Solution:

To enhance security with static IPs, we moved from Heroku to Amazon Web Services.

Domain issue

Challenge:

The backend and main application should function under the same domain name.

Solution:

We chose to implement different ports for two apps and then wrote an NGINX configuration, which would redirect all requests to the necessary link with the port to the app’s backend.

What we have now

The platform for brokers was subsequently transferred to the company’s in-house team. The client is now planning the development of a new trading platform for cryptocurrency.
