Chain Partners OTC is Korea's first bank-grade compliant trade desk. We offer digital asset custody solutions for institutions and individual investors.

1. Korean Won (KRW) settlement

Chain Partners OTC is the only global OTC trading house to support KRW/BTC, KRW/ETH, KRW/XRP and KRW/EOS pair transactions.

2. Advanced fixed-price trading

When buying or selling digital assets in bulk, you may have to buy or sell at a price that is far off from the market price. Chain Partners OTC allows you to trade at a fixed price, regardless of transaction size.

3. Same day settlement

The settlement day for a typical OTC trade desk is T+1 or T+2 days from the transaction date. However, Chain Partners OTC supports same day settlement.

4. Secure custody service

For both corporate and individual clients, storing digital assets can add difficulties to the already complicated trading process. Chain Partners OTC provides a comprehensive custody service.
