What is a Cryptocurrency OTC Desk via an exchange?
Cryptocurrency OTC or (Over-The-Counter) trading via cryptocurrency exchanges like North Star Meterics is a method of buying and selling digital assets that involves direct transactions between two parties, typically institutional investors, high-net-worth individuals, or large traders. It is often used for trading significant quantities of cryptocurrencies off the regular exchange order books.
In summary, OTC trading via cryptocurrency exchanges is a method of executing large cryptocurrency trades off the public exchange order book, offering advantages such as reduced market impact, liquidity, and customization. However, it's essential for parties to exercise caution, perform due diligence, and ensure they are dealing with reputable exchanges or brokers to minimize risks.
What is OTC Trading?
OTC trading is different from traditional exchange trading, where buyers and sellers place orders on an exchange order book, and the exchange matches these orders. In OTC trading, there is no public order book. Instead, buyers and sellers negotiate directly with each other or with the help of a broker or a cryptocurrency exchange that offers OTC services.
