What is a market maker?
Well, a market maker, also sometimes referred to as a liquidity provider, is a participant in the market that is able to quote for both bid and ask prices. The market maker agrees to both buy and sell an asset whenever requested with a small spread (the difference between the buy and sell price). Liquidity is an indication of the ease in which an asset can be traded without affecting its market price. Highly liquid assets become extremely attractive to investors.
A market maker can be likened to cars shock absorbers. They smoothen out the bumps and make for a more comfortable journey.

 

 

So, how does it work?
For every great digital asset, there is a market maker providing liquidity. A market maker can allow your asset to always offer a bid and ask price on the exchange. Thus, buy and sell orders can be executed at any time without causing major price fluctuations on the market price of the asset.

Of course, projects intending to utilise Black Ocean as their market maker would need to register an exchange account. Black Ocean requires access to the assets account API. The account owner must generate API keys for the project. Each exchange has a slightly different process to setup API access and Black Ocean is there every step of the way to assure a smooth integration. It’s important to mention that the assets remain in the control of the project team at all times, the API communicates with Black Ocean infrastructure to provide the market maker service.
