Hybrid architecture

Synergy of:

Blockchain technology - ensures secure storage, eliminates intermediary and provides aggregated liquidity from all network nodes, including the centralized node


Centralized node - centralized exhange (CEX) with performance comparable to modern, cutting edge stock exchanges

The featured functions of the hybrid exchange:
  • formation of an aggregated order book based on quotes collected from all the system’s nodes (both the centralized and decentralized nodes);
  • dissemination of the aggregated order book to the blockchain nodes;
  • choice of the blockchain nodes with the best instrument prices/quotes to place the order submitted by a client (if the order is not marketable, it is entered in the order book of the original system node);
  • sending the order to the selected system node (for marketable order); entry of information on the order into the blockchain (for queuing order);
  • receipt of execution confirmation.
Best execution logic:

Each node of the hybrid exchange provides the Best Execution service to the user. Broker companies operating in countries with a developed financial market are obliged to provide the Best Execution service. In Qurrex this service is implemented by a special module – Smart Order Router, which is part of all the blockchain nodes, incluing the centralized (CEX) node.

Qurrex DEX blockchain is built of two types of nodes: confirming nodes and user nodes. The DEX protocol allows confirming nodes to charge other nodes a commission for the deals and transactions. The commission is charged in the deals's (transaction's) cryptocurrency.

There is a special kind of trading orders: DEX Cross-Chain cross-platform atomic orders (transactions). Cross-platform orders are charged just once, when being placed on decentralized nodes. Such orders are included in blocks as DEX transactions, while the confirming nodes charge their commission.

Qurrex founds special cryptocurrencies (qBTC, qETH). A trader can exchange these cryptocurrencies through DEX and his trades are to be charged for the deals theirselves, not for separate blockchain transactions.
