Order not showing on the exchange booth
« on: January 19, 2015, 01:39:10 am »

I did 2 sell order , they got accepted into the blockchain but they were never included into the offers.

For exemple :

http://nxtportal.com/search/4852189075105088312

That's a sell order for some ELEMS. It never appeared into the sell offer ( http://nxtportal.com/search/7035962084481354251 ).
And it happened two time.
However it work when tried with the asset exchange, order appear in the offer.


Seems like you have to click on the little "offer" button on top of the exchange booth. That's not very user-friendly. Why changing it, it worked fine with the AE

I believe lyaffe stated in a thread somewhere something like

When you do an "Offer" you are acting like an exchange that buys and sells. All the offers you see in the MS are users acting like an exchange. When you do a "Sell" or "Buy" order you are acting like a customer that buys from existing exchanges on the market. This is why you may see an exchange have the same "Buy" and "Sell" offers but cannot buy from each other.

That's counterintuitive.
The asset exchange doesn't work like that, and it make no sense to have two different system for similar things.

Just make the exchange booth work like the asset exchange and it would be a lot better and user-friendly

That's the key word, similar. Assets and Currencies are not the same.

Assets Exchange works like stock exchange, while Monetary Exchange works like money changer (or currency exchange).

It may sounds logical but I agree that it is counterintuitive and I can see the confusion.

Maybe there needs to be some kind of wizard that guides user in steps.

The main issue seems to be that you can't put in an offer to buy a currency at a specified price without first owning some of that currency.  To put in an offer, you have to specify a minimum amount to sell and you must own at least that amount.

Assets and currencies may function differently, but the inability to put in a simple purchase offer at a specified price doesn't make sense.  This is how all crypto exchanges work and I assume that most people would expect to be able to trade MS coins that way.  Filling out dummy data on one half of the order book doesn't seem like a very good thing if everyone is constantly doing it as a work-around.

The amount of people who don't underestand why their order don't show up is enough to show the current system doesn't work.

I understand you wanted to make this differently because coin and asset are different but it just doesn't work.

Make the exchange booth behave the same way as the asset exchange please.
