As a professional-, algo- or HF trader or institution, what does QtTrader do for me?


* User profiles with limited rights to the same account. Investment managers with with junior traders and bookkeeping personell can give each user profile the access rights needed.

* High-resolution charts for price/volume and depth/spread.

* All systems, from client software to exchange engine are optimized for speed.

* Widely customizeable. Our convenient client-server architecture gives us the chance to simplify your workday. You can adapt your workspace to see only the information that is important to you. Intelligent buy/sell panes eliminate many of the calculations that you would have to do on the side when trading with other systems. Last but not least, the client/service architecture significantly reduces that attack vectors and so increases your security, compared to web-based solutions.


* HF traders are dependent on low latency which is Centrabits first design priority. QtTrader is probably the fastest exchange on earth. However, our all-new script language is not included in this first version since we are still working on it. Also, our co-hosting solution to further reduce latency, is not yet implemented. This means that HF traders cannot explore the full potential of QtTrader just yet. In the first beta-test we will only have bitcoin and litecoin activated, in the second test there will be more pairs, maybe even fiat transfers or stablecoins.

* Qt Trader Connector, which will let users of Qt Bitcoin Trader run their trading scripts on Qt Trader.

* Arbitrageurs can simplify their routines bu using a single interface to several exchanges. To start with, however, only our own exchange will be reachable through the client software. Until other exchanges are integrated, you can use our open-source client Qt Bitcoin Trader to work on one or more of nine external exchanges.
