How does OTC trading work?
Cryptocurrency over-the-counter (OTC) transactions occur directly between two parties. One of the parties usually specializes in buying and selling certain crypto assets, which Phemex calls a dedicated “trading desk”. The other party (in this case, you) is called the counterparty. The price, quantity and terms of each transaction will be determined and agreed upon by both parties prior to the transaction taking place.
- Stage 1
- Please complete KYC (real name verification) to activate your OTC account. Choose between personal or institutional accounts.
- Step 2
- Deposit cryptocurrency or fiat currency into your OTC account.
- Step 3
- Choose the price and quantity you want. Instantly execute transactions on your behalf.
- Step 4
- Crypto payments are made instantly, and payments usually arrive in your wallet within 2 hours.
Phemex offers all major cryptocurrencies including Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH), Bitcoin Cash (BCH), Litecoin (LTC) and TetherUS (USDT).
What are the strengths of Phemex?
Phemex OTC transactions allow you to conveniently buy and sell virtual assets using bank and wire transfers. OTC trading makes trading large amounts of cryptocurrency much easier than regular spot trading. For example, it would be very difficult to buy 100 BTC at once on a spot exchange, and you would have to procure that BTC from multiple sellers. In OTC, even if the transaction amount is large, only the trading desk needs to handle it.
