What is a Dark Pool?

Posted by Bitcoin Basics


A dark pool is a way of trading that doesn't show all of your trades at once.

See  http://www.taters.net/cgi-bin/btc/matrix.pl?axisinc=0.01

It shows all the trades that are "public".  A dark pool will have one partial trade of the entire trade order listed.  In this chart, and once that trade is executed, a new trade will be entered automatically.
