Gemini Offers Off-Chain, OTC Desk Trade Support With New Product Launch

Trade

Tyler and Cameron Winklevoss’ Gemini crypto exchange just added off-chain and over the counter trade negotiations on its platform.

The features come via Gemini Clearing, an electronic settlement system. According to the firm’s blog posting, Gemini Clearing allows Gemini accounts to negotiate and settle trades between Gemini accounts.

“Such trades can either be arranged bilaterally between two parties or brokered via a third party,” the company said. “Gemini Clearing provides regulated clearing and settlement services for such pre-arranged trades, which helps to ensure timely settlement and mitigate counterparty risk.”

In essence, Gemini Clearing acts as an escrow service for cryptocurrency traders looking to take advantage of Gemini’s customer services.

To be clear, Gemini does not have an OTC desk but rather supports OTC desk trades with the new product.

Based out of New York, Gemini offers six cryptocurrency products including bitcoin, litecoin, bitcoin cash, ethereum, zcash, and the exchange’s stablecoin, the gemini dollar.

Gemini says the new product falls under the exchange’s know your customer/anti-money laundering (KYC/AML) policies, which it holds as the industry standard.
