The settlement of trades like these that are executed on FLUID will be paid with pre-funded balances held in multi-chain wallets. It will be necessary for both maker and taker parties on FLUID to have balances for the trades to settle against. The settlement is automated by FLUID itself, using limited privileges that allow it to transfer funds between this restricted set of wallets. FLUID clients, meanwhile, retain privileges to top-up and withdraw balances from these wallets at their discretion. It is important to note that this trade and settlement process only interacts with FLUID’s own data, and the balances held in these wallets. It will be up to individual exchanges to decide how FLUID actions integrate with their own platforms.
