There are times where we’re going to need to communicate important messages to our community and we’ve come up with a way to do that by putting it right into your canonical feed. 

It should like like above and below you’ll see how it feels in the larger feed context:

There are so many different ways to do this, but, we opted to test out this way first. I like how it’s a slightly different color and that you can easily “X” it out (close it) if you’re done reading it.

Examples of site-wide notifications might include:

– Planned downtime for upgrading the system

– A new (and important) feature that was implemented (e.g. new security update)

– An outage at one of the exchanges that we’re connected to

– A new hardfork that has stopped certain trading for tokens (e.g. BCH / BCH ABC / BCH SV hardfork updates)

And things like that. We hope to implement this in the next few sprints!
