Crypto exchange Colbitrex will track suspicious activity on its platform
Colbitrex is a trading platform that has become popular by integrating the latest innovative technologies to provide its users with high-performance trading solutions.
The Colbitrex Active Defender tool will be launched by cryptocurrency exchange Colbitrex to provide oversight across the platform and promote a “healthy financial environment.” The patented exchange monitoring program has been designed to combat market abuse, report suspicious trading practices and combat price manipulation.
Colbitrex Active Defender will report any suspicious trading patterns and promote the overall integrity of the platform in terms of ethical trading practices. The tool will work in tandem with Colbitrex’s matching engine called Pyramid, which provides speed, scalability and resilience to the platform.
Colbitrex Active Defender will sound an alarm if a potential trading threat is detected on the platform. A detailed report of suspicious activity will be generated and provided in an email. The surveillance will cover all trading pairs available on the crypto exchange, including derivatives and futures products.
Bitfinex’s chief technology officer said that extensive trade monitoring and surveillance capabilities have been developed specifically for Bitfinex. As digital asset trading evolves to include more and more sophisticated technology, trade monitoring must be ongoing.
Colbitrex Active Defender will also help limit practices such as, leyring or wash trading. In both methods, the trader attempts to mislead market participants about real demand and supply data by using orders that are not real.
