Newb here,  I was hoping to start a discussion about HFT (seeing how its all over the news currently) in hopes to gather some more information about how Bitcoin exchanges deal with speed.  Are there technical aspects of online exchanges such as Bitstamp and BTC-e that encourage/ discourage HFT on their platforms?

Sometimes there are request limits.

https://www.bitstamp.net/api/

Do you even mine?

These limits are probably not with the intention to prevent HFT, but to prevent server load.


IIRC Atlas is going to open crypto to institutional HFT.

bitstamp, btc-e works over the internet. this has nothing to do with HFT, which is about sub millisecond trading. ask again in 2-3 years, then this might be an issue.
