According to Deribit, this new platform can carry out a large number of order requests every second and can handle transactions at a few milliseconds for every order.

According to John Jansen, the CEO of Deribit, the company was dedicated to improving and shaping its infrastructure to contend with large volumes during the first half of 2018. It has now successfully built an infrastructure that is extensive and flexible, which can adequately accommodate several nodes. The CEO also said that the there has been a duplication of each trading book on several nodes, which means that another quickly replaces the failure of one node.

Another benefit of the platform is its cheap fees, which allow traders with little capital outlay to still take sizeable positions.
