OTCBTC supports both Over-the-counter (OTC) exchange as well as cryptocurrency trading. Both exchanges share the same wallet, allowing users to easily buy and sell on both platforms.
To switch between the two trading platforms: Crypto Exchange and OTC, all you need to do is switch between the two tabs on the top of the navigation bar.
