Many users will ask: am I trading real stocks or commodities on Dsdaq? how does the system work? why could I use my crypto to trade traditional securities?
The answer is that you are trading real financial derivatives(contract for difference or CFD) on Dsdaq using your cryptos as collaterals.
On Dsdaq, every order will be matched by global liquidity and your always have a counter-party to trade. We offer institutional grade aggregated liquidity and uses Straight Through Processing (STP) execution. STP execution removes any potential conflict of interest and ensures that your trades are passed straight through at lightning speed to top-tier liquidity providers.
The below chart discloses how our system works. Put it simple, you transfer your cryptos to your crypto collateral account and we lend your money to trade the financial derivatives that settled by USD.
That means, you still own your cryptos but you borrow some extra money from us to trade traditional securities.
