When you intend to procure a valuable asset – digital or traditional – you need a partner to ensure the integrity of your transaction. We facilitate secure transactions and provide OTC Dark Pool (ODP) services for ultra-high net worth individuals, hedge funds, family offices, banks, trading platforms, and legal firms seeking access to cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin, and others.

Transact with a secure end-to-end process

We will take care of you right from the start. Typically, after filling out our questionnaire that outlines the requirements, we conduct a brief telephone conversation to discuss procedure. Then, the NCNDA, fee agreements and mandate or broker contracts are executed. We agree to either match a deal or initiate a TWAP-transaction. Upon completion of the PoF/PoA, a legally binding contract between buyer and seller is concluded, KYC- & AML-requirements are verified, and the transaction is completed. Funds and assets are transferred to German Escrow and we transfer the goods respectively. 


Below you will find the specific process steps required when conducting a larger asset transfer with us.

1. Questionnaire

Prior to onboarding we require a questionnaire to determine your requirements, from that we will provide an outline of the most suitable deal for you and currently possible market rates.

2. Meeting

In an initial conversation with the Seller/Buyer or the mandate, we provide you with an overview of the transaction process and detail the steps in the procedure to secure a deal. We provide Strategic Partner options, the trade amount, and all required KYC and  AML verifications. Prior to the engagement of our legal counsel Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe (OHS), you are required to agreeing to to cover all legal costs in relation to the engagement of OHS in the event of the following:

1. Seller/Buyer doesn’t have the purported assets/funds

2. Seller/Buyer mandate is not the legal mandate to the Seller/Buyer

3. Signing

We contact the Seller/Buyer or their mandate on your behalf and in collaboration with OHS as agreed upon in Step 2. The NCNDA, fee agreements, and selling/buying mandate or broker contract between the client and us is set up. The agreement is signed by both parties.

4. Onboarding

The Seller/Buyer is required to provide a Letter of Intent (LOI) that states their ability to initiate the OTC transaction, the value amount and trade requirements. Upon receipt of the LOI, we confirm the OTC deal request and confirm our client’s ability to match the deal, TWAP transaction or mix following what was discussed in the initial conversation.

5. PoF/PoA

We employ the most stringent privacy policy in dealing with Proof of Funds (POF) and Proof of Assets (POA). This information remains confidential throughout the entire transaction cycle. To ensure the privacy of the POF/POA, we provide through proofs through our legal counsel upon request.

Permissible POF and POA are:

POF – MT199 from Buyer’s bank.
POA – Signed Message on the Seller’s wallet or Satoshi test to given wallet.

6. Agreements

  • Date and time: Parties select a desired time of execution
  • Commissions for intermediaries: Parties outline the terms of compensation for any intermediaries, introducers, and agents prior to executing the deal. Compensation of any party who is not included in the contract is not our responsibility.
  • Premiums, discounts and other requests: Any differences in the pricing, such as premiums and discounts, are to be communicated and included in the contract.
