New Exchanges

BTC-e has long been among the volume leaders in the Bitcoin exchange ecosystem.  Traders on the ZeroBlock trading platform now have access to two of the largest liquidity pools, BTC-e and Bitstamp.

Professional Trading Backbone

A new market data and order entry backbone enables lightning-fast execution on BTC-e.  ZeroBlock has developed a professional level Financial Information eXchange protocol (FIX) API.  The FIX protocol is a globally accepted standard of messaging specifications developed through the collaboration of banks, brokers, exchanges, institutional investors, and information technology providers from around the world.

**Click to Trade **

The latest version of the platform supports order entry directly from the Order Book and Visual Depth modules. Clicking at a certain price level will update the corresponding Order Entry module’s price. This action allows the trader to quickly ‘join’ the book at a desired level.

Order Sweeping

Order sweeping is also available through a Shift-click on the Visual Depth or clicking the Amount column in the Order Book. A sweep is an order to buy or sell all liquidity on the book to a certain point.

Market Spread Indicator

The Visual Depth module now displays the current market spread, expressed as the percentage difference between the Bid and Ask price.
