What is OTC?

OTC or over the counter trading is a service available to large volume investors, whether they be high net worth individuals or institutions. This is a process whereby trades are negotiated and settled via a broker rather than an on a public exchange. This is because large orders can cause slippage, which refers to when the price of an asset does not match the price it was requested.

Due the large volume of these trades, OTC crypto desks are often able to negotiate tighter spreads. This means that large volume traders can save money and maximise their profits.

OTC vs crypto exchange trading

Using a registered public cryptocurrency exchange is the most common avenue to invest in digital asset classes like Bitcoin and Ethereum. Making a substantial trade, however, can result in unfavourable price disruption due to insufficient liquidity.

OTC trading is designed for institutions and high net worth traders who are looking to place large scale trades. Instead of filling a large volume order at once, OTC crypto brokers can negotiate a set price with a liquidity provider. Alternatively, another way of bypassing price slippage through an OTC trade is by splitting up large orders into several smaller orders.
