The cryptocurrency market began to rally since May, among them, the most notable is BTC, it has risen from $5,300 to around $8,900, with the biggest increase of more than 68%. At this time, more newbie investors entered the market. However, these new traders lack basic investment knowledge and even do not know how to buy digital assets through OTC trading. This article will introduce related OTC trading knowledge.

The first thing to understand is: Why do we need to buy digital assets first instead of direct trading with fiat currency?

Since the current policy prohibits the exchange from directly using the fiat currency for on-floor transactions, therefore, the exchange sets the OTC trading zone to allow traders to realize the conversion between the fiat currency and digital assets. In OTC trading, users can trade directly with each other, and the platform acts as the guarantor.
