Intent-Based Smart Order Routing

Hashflow’s intent-based Smart Order Routing (SOR) finds the most optimal path across liquidity sources and fills every trade of any size with the best price for users. Through its off-chain RFQ engine, Hashflow will seek competitive price quotes from professional market makers. If for any reason their liquidity is limited, Hashflow will then fetch quotes from additional liquidity sources and route users directly to the best price. The ability to fetch on-chain liquidity from over 50+ on-chain sources also means that users can bypass large fees tied to other front-ends (for example, users can access liquidity and rates on AMMs without having to worry about a 0.15% fee).
For trades that are filled via RFQ, Hashflow provides users guaranteed prices, full MEV-protection, and lower gas fees.

What this means for Market Makers

Hashflow allows market makers to provide quotes via a Request for Quote (RFQ) model, enabling them to source liquidity and price assets using off-chain pricing functions, backed by cryptographic signatures. By moving pricing off-chain, market makers can use more sophisticated pricing strategies that factor in off-chain data like historic asset prices, volatility, and other real-world information that allows them to effectively price assets.
