Zero Hash

Trading on Zero Hash supported platforms

Orders are submitted by participants on markets supported by Zero Hash. Supported markets include Seed Digital Commodities Market, Seed SEF, OTC brokers and other execution venues.

Trade submitted to Zero Hash

Trades are delivered to Zero Hash as they are executed or in a batch format. Zero Hash builds a queue of transactions.

Settlement obligations are calculated by Zero Hash

In batch, margin and settlement obligations are calculated by Zero Hash as the Calculation Agent. Each trade is passed through a system that determines movements that must occur for each transaction.

Movements of trades executed

Settlement obligations are pooled per participant and movements are executed. Settlements are initially completed off-chain within Zero Hash’s secure ledger infrastructure as a FinCEN registered Money Service Business, money transmitter, and NYDFS BitLicense holder.

Movements are prepared for on-chain settlement

Zero Hash isolates the digital asset movements and delivers the movements to the Digital Asset Vault. The Vault performs a number of reconciliation checks, and once complete, transactions are prepared for delivery to the blockchain.

On-chain settlement

Each transaction requires signature from 2 of 3 private keys for on chain settlement. The Digital Asset Vault then delivers the signed transaction for on-chain settlement. Once the blockchain network confirms the transactions, settlement is complete.
