Liquidity aggregation is not a new concept in the financial industry. On the contrary, it has been used as a solution to tackle fragmented liquidity for many years across conventional financial systems. As a result, it’s no surprise that demand for liquidity aggregators is increasing across the crypto industry.
Whether you are an institutional or retail digital asset trader, you want to make sure the platform you are trading on has the lowest latency, lowest fees, and holds the highest standards for securing its traders.
Unfortunately, this is not the case today, where digital asset markets suffer from numerous problems, including market manipulation, high spreads, lack of interoperability between exchanges, price disparity, etc.
The crypto market has long struggled with liquidity, owing to the ecosystem’s fragmentation, with each liquidity provider, pool, and platform serving a different set of clients on their blockchain. The difficulty is exacerbated by the fact that the underlying blockchain networks operate in distinct silos and are still not interconnected enough.
A liquidity aggregator can bring a fragmented market under a single lens and eliminate duplication of liquidity while facilitating increased efficiency and better risk management.
Additionally, aggregators also enable traders to fill trades at the best execution price possible across a range of liquidity sources.
A liquidity provider delivers one of the most vital components to the market: liquidity. Liquidity is provided by market makers in the conventional stock market: investment corporations, major trading firms, and institutional investors such as giant banks or hedge funds, that trade in massive quantities of assets. They provide markets the option to quickly execute a deal without waiting for a counterparty to accept the trader’s proposal, bid, or ask in exchange terms.
Liquidity aggregators link institutions and ordinary investors through the aggregation infrastructure, where these orders may be routed and executed by combining orders from integrated exchanges.
Currently, the most successful digital asset liquidity aggregators focus on aggregating exchange liquidity and use quant-based methods to try and provide what is known as best execution—a law in the traditional markets that requires broker platforms to place the interests of clients first above incentives, such as soft dollars, offered by trade routing entities, and provide those clients with a single-window solution that provides the best price for a selected stock across all markets, hence aggregating the best price. In the digital assets case, it’s aggregating the liquidity from various exchanges, for example.
