  • BUY_PO (7): Post-Only Buy. This order type ensures that the order will only be added to the order book and not match with a pre-existing order. It guarantees that you will be the market "maker" and not the "taker".

  • BUY_ATOMIC (9): An atomic buy order is a market order that gets executed instantly, bypassing the Frequent Batch Auctions (FBA). It's intended for smart contracts that need to execute a trade instantly. A higher fee is paid defined in the global exchange parameters (currently it is two times the normal trading fee).
  • SELL_ATOMIC (10): An atomic sell order is similar to a BUY_ATOMIC, and it gets executed instantly at the current market price, bypassing the FBA.
