How do I submit a trade for settlement by Zero Hash?

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 POST /trades, as described in our web API documentation. We can also accept matched trades via instant messaging, telephone or email.

Soon, we will release support for:

  • A FIX-based Straight Through Processing (STP) gateway, into which trade reporters can submit TradeCaptureReports; and
  • A trade submission GUI.

Once the trade has been submitted and accepted by Zero Hash, there is no further action needed to initiate settlement.
