How It Works  

Pre-trade

  • Asset Manager links exchange account(s) to SuperLoop on Cobo Custody Web
  • Asset Manager requests to mirror coins on linked exchange account via Cobo
  • Coins will be locked and mirrored 1:1 on linked exchange account
  • Asset Manager may request to increase/decrease (i.e. withdraw) the amount of mirrored coins as and when desired

During-trade

  • Asset Manager submits trade orders to Exchange and trades as per usual

Post-trade

  • Automated settlement at Periodic Settle Time (or Asset Manager initiates early settlement on-demand via Cobo)
  • Exchange provides net settlement amount to Cobo via API, which is then approved by Asset Manager
