OKEx Trading System 3.0 improves latency by over 90 per cent

OKEx's latest improvement to the matching engine called Trading System 3.0 has resulted in a notable 90 per cent-plus improvement on latency, according to Lennix Lai, Director of Financial Markets of OKEx.

The brand-new upgrade is designed to cater especially to high-frequency traders and will also allow OKEx's matching engine to maintain constant high-performance and speed during periods of heavy trading and increased volatility. The upgrade will improve trading across the board from spot trading to futures, perpetual swap to options.

OKEx CEO Jay Hao says: "This is a considerable upgrade to the OKEx architecture and our users can expect to see improvements in all areas from spot to futures trading. Latency has been decreased by 90%+, the platform is stable, with the concurrent ability increased by 10x, and offering a better API experience than ever before. We're extremely pleased with the hard work our team has put in to better serve the demands of our users and are confident that our platform is among the very best in the industry."
