FTX-as-a-Service

Enable your users to access the FTX technology stack by leveraging the comprehensive FTX API suite. Partners can integrate FTX through two different services: Single Sign-On & Whitelabel. This article provides a general overview of the FTX SSO service.

 

Introduction

FTX Single Sign-On provides our partners the ability to generate revenue from trading fees from FTX users through the External Referral Program. Through an OAuth integration, the partner is able to easily obtain API keys from an FTX user and then act on behalf of the user (trade, get balance, deposit, purchase NFTs, etc).

 

Why would a partner integrate FTX SSO?

  • Trade and leverage existing FTX services without reinventing the wheel
  • Authentication, payment on-ramps, KYC flows will be provided through ftx.com/ftx.us
  • Users will be able to access their existing FTX account
  • Generate revenue through the External Referral Program

 

Common Use Cases

  • A partner has an app/website/trading algorithm and leverages the public API to make trades on behalf of the user (e.g. Stacked)
  • A partner has an app/website and would like to add a widget with the ability to make trades (e.g. TradingView & Brave Browser)

 

User Flow

1. User navigates to partner’s website

2. User clicks the “Sign in with FTX” button on the partner’s website

2a. User will be redirected to the FTX website

2b. User will either login or sign up and go through KYC

2c. User will authorize the partner’s app

3. As the user trades through the partner’s website, fees are rebated to the partner

 

Differences vs. Whitelabel

  • Users will know they are using their FTX account during the redirect process
  • Users will have FTX accounts and will be able to login to the FTX website
  • Users will be using payment and KYC rails on the FTX website
  • Partner does not need to dedicate significant resources to get the product out
  • Partner must follow the brand guidelines of the “Sign In with FTX” button

 

Getting Started

1. Partner contacts bd@ftx.us with an overview of the intended integration.

2. Partner will be required to create an FTX account and sign a contract with FTX for both Single Sign-On and External Referral Program. 

3. Partner denotes a name for their ERP and the associated FTX account.

4. FTX enables SSO & ERP for the partner, providing "clientId" & "clientSecret". 

5. Partner integrates the SSO functionality onto their app.
