Independent Third Party Highlights Seed Digital Commodities Markets as Consistently Lowest Cost and Best Execution

Friday, 14. February 2020 15:00

CHICAGO, Feb. 14, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Seed Digital Commodities Market (SCXM) today released third party independent analysis compiled by research and algorithmic best execution firm CoinRoutes.

Order book data was collected from seven of the largest US exchanges (including SCXM, Gemini, Coinbase, Kraken, Poloniex, itBit and Bitstamp). The time period analyzed was during the trading week of 2nd February (6:00 PM CST 02/02/2020 to 4:00 PM CST 02/09/2020).

During this weeklong period, for an illustrative order of 1 BTC, SCXM offered the Best Bid and Offer respectively for 50% and 22.8% of the time. It is particularly notable that across an entire trading session (02/08/2020 6:00 PM CST - 02/09/2020 CST 4:00 PM), SCXM offered the Best Bid 68% of the time.

CoinRoutes’ Centralised Best Bid Offer (CBBO) filters and analyzes crypto-market order book data to identify trends in the market. Pricing data from multiple exchanges was consolidated and analyzed.

“The analysis formalizes what our clients already know that consistently offer best bid and best offer among the top US exchanges, providing some of the lowest execution costs globally,” said Edward Woodford, CEO. “The analysis tells the same story for different order sizes and across all the assets that we offer. We are proud to have developed a technology and market structure that facilitates the lowest cost of execution. It is incredible that last week we were able to consistently offer the best bid almost 70% during a 24-hour period.”

“We founded CoinRoutes to provide best execution to crypto investors. Our platform informs clients where to find the best price among all the major exchanges and liquidity providers and gives our customers the means to execute their order,” said Dave Weisberger, Co-Founder and CEO at CoinRoutes.

In addition to some of the lowest execution costs, SCXM offers participants a number of advantages over other digital asset exchanges, including:

  • Low Latency and Connection Reliability: A robust infrastructure allows groups to reliably trade on SCXM’s matching engine at NY4 and to access the market using either FIX protocol or Web API.
  • Margin Trading: SCXM provides leverage trading to market participants and allows collateral to be posted using non-traditional assets, such as digital assets.
  • Secure Custodying of Assets: All USD deposits are held in regulated and FDIC-insured US banks under a regulated third-party settlement agent, Zero Hash. Digital assets are held in Zero Hash’s secure wallet infrastructure, which segregates holdings in individual participant’s multi-signature wallets rather than omnibus wallets. This allows the movement of digital assets to be reconcilable with the public blockchain.
  • Robust Compliance: SCXM does not trade against clients and surveils the market to ensure an efficient and fair market for all.
  • Account and Sub-account Permissioning: Participants can create any number of accounts and sub-accounts to precisely control who has trading and admin privileges.
  • Dedicated Institutional Coverage: A dedicated team of operational support professionals based in Chicago provides around-the-clock support via email or phone.
