DXmatch overview

DXmatch is a modular system built for launching exchanges and dark pools that operate in OTC (FX and crypto), commodities, and regulated equities and derivatives markets.

More than just a matching engine

DXmatch is a complete exchange infrastructure: it includes everything from the matching algorithm encompassing market data delivery and storage to risk management, FIX and REST APIs for market access, and administrative UI.

Best-known matching algorithm

At the core of DXmatch, a matching engine ensures optimal order matching at an exchange. The matching algorithm utilizes price/time priority model: orders are prioritized first by price and then by “order received” time.

DXmatch use cases

This matching engine is the foundation for different types of exchanges and trading venues.

Public exchange: stocks, futures, options, digital assets, NFTs

Alternative trading system

guarantees efficient execution at an independent trading system

Internal matching engine

reduces market impact and uses internal liquidity for the best prices

Dark pool

lets participants stay anonymous but transparent to the regulators

Algo testing facility

tests automated trading strategies before launching them on live markets

Swap execution facility

brings together buyers and sellers of swap contracts to trade with one another

Electronic communication network

utilizes algorithms to automatically match buy and sell orders for securities in the market

Why DXmatch?

DXmatch is the most flexible and modern system you can choose for your exchange. Unlike other solutions, it ensures growth without costly additional development.

Ultra-low latency

The advanced bare metal system setup provides sub-100 microsecond, 99th percentile, wall-to-wall latency for order processing via high-performance FIX API.

Asset agnostic

DXmatch fits all industry instruments: to launch a crypto exchange or a regulated stock, futures, options, or commodities exchange. It also suits non-standard industries, like bets, real estate, and predictions.


REST and FIX APIs for trading and exchange management are stateless, and you can set up multiple instances to work in parallel. In addition, the RAFT protocol ensures automatic failover for the leader-matching engine.

Deploy anywhere

Deploy the system to commodity bare metal servers for the best and most stable processing latency – or into a cloud for flexibility.


DXmatch grows with your business. Start with stocks and add derivatives when you’re ready. Accomodate a greater number of traders and double the order throughput by adding a second matching segment to handle over 100,000 orders.

Enterprise-grade APIs

The system utilizes standard APIs for placing orders, sourcing quotes, and managing the market. This includes direct market access, market data processing, and custom ultra-low latency APIs.

DXmatch applications

DXmatch provides a full cycle of exchange operations, tools, and modules for running a 24/7 crypto or a traditional stock exchange.
