Below are a few of the key points and statistics Bobby shared about the current OTC market and itBit's Global OTC Agency Trading Desk:

  • Average daily trading volume on itBit's OTC desk is 1,000-1,500 XBT and has grown 140% week-over-week since launching in June. 
  • itBit OTC volume alone is greater than the volume on over 80% of digital currency exchanges worldwide. 
  • Bobby speculated that daily bitcoin OTC volume is roughly 50%-75% of total exchange volume. This is a strong indication that total bitcoin trading volume is underreported.
