instrument code Vs TradingSymbol

numeric instrument code is required to start the websocket, but to place the order, we need trading symbol in alphabet. Why so? Am I doing something wrong?

    Instrument token is something that is Zerodha has assigned for streaming binary data with minimum data consumption and better latency. In fact, exchanges send live market data with an exchange token as the key.

    Tradingsymbol is the required field while placing an order at the exchange.
