Wholesale crypto-asset trading at a fair price

No Market Impact

SheeldMatch allows institutions and businesses to trade large amounts of digital assets without market impact and at the best price. Our technology guarantees complete privacy of the financial information, from order submission to execution.
Benefit from high levels of diverse liquidity available through a low-latency infrastructure.

Hidden Orders

Orders are securely kept in an encrypted order book, avoiding data exploitation, leakage or manipulation from both outsiders and operators.

Block Trading

Fast and elaborate matching algorithms allow various order types of a minimum size.

No Price Slippage

Add limit, time-in-force or pegged-to-midpoint to prevent unintended slippage before execution.

Fair price by design

No Information Leakage
Orders are encrypted from their inception and handled in an encrypted matching engine. We exploit cutting-edge chip-based encryption to preserve the anonymity of the traders and the confidentiality of their positions. At any given time, an unexecuted order is only accessible by its submitter.
No Market Manipulation
As the operators, we never have access to the order book, so we cannot leak the information to third parties or apply discretionary spreads.

Transparent matching

Order Matching Fairness
Check that your orders were matched according to the rules with our real-time Zero-Knowledge proofs. We will never act as privilege counterpart to your trades or apply discretionary spreads.
Verifiable Consolidated Tape
Enjoy no fake volumes and transparent filling rates thanks to the combination of an auditable database of real-time zero-knowledge proof and a traditional consolidated tape.
Industry-Standard Price Feed
We source the market midpoint price from Merkle Data through a low-latency infrastructure. More about Merkle Data
