In order to keep our order books free from manipulation, we may temporarily disable trading for your account if you repeatedly:

  • Take liquidity but fail to successfully sign and submit the order from your wallet
  • Cause your own valid trade to fail settlement through various blockchain race conditions

As a dashboard trader, don't worry! Our UI will give you plenty of time to sign and submit orders through your MetaMask, Ledger, or mobile wallet.

For API users, The Ocean offers a staging environment for you to test your strategy on the Kovan network and avoid penalization. To get started, checkout our docs and staging developer portal.
