What is OTC crypto trading?
OTC stands for over-the-counter and is often referred to as off-exchange trading. OTC trading is not specific to crypto, and 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.
