Better user protection through non-custodial trading
Give your users the best trading experience that combines the benefits of centralized and decentralized systems. An Arwen integration means you continue running your centralized orderbooks, but doesn’t require traders to move their coins into the exchange’s wallet solution. There’s no disruption to traditional trading, while you also provide the custody benefits normally found on a DEX.
Reduce the burden of coin management
Managing coins and keys for traders brings its own set of regulatory and audit implications. As more of your users adopt Arwen, it means fewer coins for you to manage, and sharply reduced loss in the event of a hack, as trades run through Arwen are protected. Adding this layer of security is favorable to your users, your auditors, and your regulators.
Earn revenue from funding escrows
The Arwen system opens a secure layer between the user’s wallet and the exchange. In order to facilitate trades, both sides must first collateralize respective escrows (eg on BTC and LTC blockchains) before off-blockchain trades can happen. Since the exchange is locking up coins, specific to a particular user, that same user compensates the exchange for locking coins and providing the additional security. Effectively, by providing this new layer of security, the exchange generates a new source of revenue for itself.
Works with existing orderbook
Any user of your exchange who opts to use Arwen as a security feature is still getting prices from your existing orderbook like any other user. Our API calls for quotes directly from the exchange. If you’re interested in reviewing our API docs or discussing a proof of concept, please inquire here.
