Dynamic availability is a feature that can be used in Ads, it is displayed as Update availability on every order when creating an Ad. For instructions on how to create an Ad, please see How to Create an Ad on the Bitfinex Peer-To-Peer (P2P).
If enabled, every time a new order is ongoing or successfully completed, the “Dynamic availability” or Update availability on every order feature will decrease the available amount in the Ad by the exact amount proposed to be traded in the ongoing order or actually traded in the successfully completed order. This way, the number of tokens listed as available for sale in an Ad will reduce as you sell those tokens. This reduces the likelihood that Ads are automatically hidden due to balance mismatches allowing your Ad to remain visible more of the time.
Required Exchange Wallet balance
A Maker needs a sufficient balance in the Exchange Wallet to cover the availability specified in each of the Live Ads at any given moment.
Example: If a Maker has five different ads Live (four of them with an availability of 0.5 BTC and one with the availability 1.5 BTC) and the BTC balance in the Exchange wallet gets below 1.5 BTC then the Ad with 1.5 BTC of availability will automatically be hidden from public view. If the BTC amount in the Exchange wallet falls below 0.5 BTC, then all of the Ads will be hidden from public view.
In order to bring the Ads back to Live and avoid this situation, is to either:
- Reduce the availability in each of the hidden ads to a value compatible with the current exchange wallet balance
- Increase the balance of the required tokens in the Exchange Wallet by any other means so that the Exchange Wallet balance of the required token is at or above the amount offered in the ads.
