Globe infrastructure

InnovativeCrypto-native or traditional, Globe aligns with all market makers
  • Rich & stable API
  • 60ms Stable Websocket
  • DMM (Designated Market Maker) Programmes
  • Zero-friction integration
The lag-free exchange Globe has a unique exchange architecture to tackle this
  • Matching and risk engines run in colocation on high frequency trading hardware
  • This allows for the entire orderbook to be kept in L3 cache at all times and nanosecond latencies between services yielding faster-than-NASDAQ message processing rates to avoid overloads
  • Globe also benefits from the huge expense invested into fast connections between major financial data centers like London (LD4) and Tokyo, meaning that Globe can offer superior global lag characteristics and throughput to previous generation exchanges
