What is OTC trading?

OTC stands for over-the-counter and is often referred to as off-exchange trading. OTC trading is not specific to crypto. It is an essential feature of most tradable markets. Usually, an agent or broker is used to bring buyers and sellers together. This differs from on-exchange trading, where many buyers and sellers can post their own price levels on an order book and wait for an opposing buyer/seller to trade with them at their posted price.

OTC vs exchange trading

For most crypto traders, trading on a transparent reliable exchange like Independent Reserve will satisfy all trading needs. However, for large volume block trades (~$AUD 100,000+), executing all at once on an exchange is likely to have a negative impact on the price that the order gets filled at. This is what’s known as slippage.

  • Reduce slippage

    One key advantage of using a crypto/Bitcoin OTC service such as Independent Reserve is that market slippage is kept to a minimum. This means the gap between the cheapest price and the actual price for the volume you want to trade is minimized. The larger the trade size, the more you will save on slippage costs when executing via OTC.
  • Market insight

    Whilst all trades are confidential, professional brokers can provide reporting and market color, which institutional traders often find valuable when making trading decisions. It is important to note that Independent Reserve does not provide financial advice. All readers and clients are strongly encouraged to conduct their own personal research.
  • Increased privacy

    Since OTC orders are not visible or reported to the market, there is less chance your trade will signal the market and move prices away from you before you are filled.
  • Deeper liquidity

    OTC desks provide access to deep pools of liquidity by tapping into their networks of institutional crypto buyers and sellers, such as miners, ICO advisories, family offices, and investment funds.
