Our blog on Zero Hash describes the flow of information in some detail, however it all starts with a trade being submitted for processing. This is typically done by a Platform Operator, i.e. an entity running an exchange, dealer platform or brokerage service; although trades can be submitted to Zero Hash directly by any participant.
To send Zero Hash trades programmatically, we have created a HTTP endpoint to allow participants to submit trades via:
POST /tradesendpoint request, as described in our web API documentation;
- A FIX-based Straight Through Processing (STP) gateway submission;
- Our trade submission GUI;
- An instant messaging;
- A telephone; or
- An email.
Once the trade has been submitted and accepted by Zero Hash, there is no further action needed to initiate settlement.
