OTC & Brokerage

Crypto services > OTC & Brokerage

Overview

Flowdesk offers OTC & Brokerage as a Service (BaaS) products to facilitate the buying and selling of digital assets. Our infrastructure allows for low market impact execution and we prioritize discretion in all of our operations. As a regulated DASP (Digital Assets Service Provider), we have strict NDAs and conflict of interest policies in place to ensure discreet operations. We offer fast settlements, with same day settlement for crypto-to-crypto trades and D+1 for crypto-to-fiat trades. Our live dashboard and execution reports provide transparent, monitored trade execution. With access to multiple exchanges, we are able to offer best execution on both liquid and illiquid assets.

Key advantages

  • Deep liquidity access from over 100 exchanges
  • Live dashboard providing visualization of trade execution details across exchanges and by pair.
  • Bespoke execution parameters and algorithmic execution
  • Regulated partner ensuring transparency and reporting
  • Fast settlements with multiple delivery and payment options

Key features

Our execution strategies include execution at best, utilizing proprietary algorithms for execution mandates with specific parameters or at the best available price, with fixed price quotes offered by voice or chat. We also offer token sales programs and token buyback services, utilizing discretion and proprietary algorithms to minimize market impact.
One of Flowdesk's key competitive advantages in the OTC trading space is our smart algorithm technology, which enables us to access a deep pool of crypto liquidity and prices across a wide range of market participants and 100+ exchanges, which in turn allows us to sell illiquid assets. In addition to providing trading solutions for a variety of counterparties, Flowdesk offers the ability to execute trades with bespoke parameters, algorithmic execution, the security of working with a regulated partner, and fast settlement options.
We also offer post-trade settlement services in USD, EUR, or any other major currency, and can provide access to our global banking network and OTC trading network. We offer fiat-to-crypto, crypto-to-crypto, and crypto-to-fiat conversions. For crypto-to-crypto operations, clients transfer crypto (usually USD stablecoin, but occasionally BTC or ETH) and we facilitate the conversion to another crypto.
Each of our clients is assigned a dedicated Account Manager to ensure a personalized and seamless experience. To utilize our services, clients can choose their preferred execution strategy through an RFQ (request for quotation) process via 24/7 voice or chat. Funds can then be deposited under custody for execution, and our proprietary trading infrastructure allows us to access liquidity from multiple exchanges to facilitate the trade.

Buyback and Sales

Flowdesk offers a range of services to facilitate the buying and selling of digital assets, including token sales and buybacks. Our goal is to provide our clients with the highest level of service and support, while minimizing market impact and ensuring the security and integrity of all transactions.

Token Sales

Our token sales service is designed to help clients fulfill their financial goals through the sale of digital assets. This allows clients to have a steady flow of revenues to cover their operational costs or raise capital. We offer a range of options to help clients structure and execute their token sales, including:
  • Anonymous execution on centralized or decentralized exchanges: Our proprietary algorithms and deep liquidity access allow us to execute large volume trades with minimal market impact.
  • Data-driven insights on token sales: Our team can help clients leverage the data we collect from exchanges (pools and CEXs liquidity) to optimize their token sale strategy.
  • Customized reporting: We offer customizable reporting options, including live dashboards, to help clients track their token sale and analyze their performance. Our reports can be tailored to specific needs, providing clients with the information they need to make informed decisions.

Token Buybacks

Our token buyback service is designed to help token issuers and businesses repurchase digital assets from the market. We offer several options to help clients execute their token buyback, including:
  • Anonymous execution on centralized or decentralized exchanges: Our proprietary algorithms and deep liquidity access allow us to execute large volume trades with minimal market impact.
  • Price momentum or support: We can execute client buyback using algorithms that target specific price points or support levels, helping clients to achieve their desired outcomes.

Execution strategies

At Flowdesk, we offer a range of execution strategies to suit the specific needs of our clients. Our team can work with clients to identify the best strategy for their trade, based on client specific goals and risk tolerance. Whether clients prefer TWAP, VWAP, or a price momentum-based strategy, we can help them execute their trades efficiently and effectively.
  • TWAP (Time-Weighted Average Price) is an execution strategy that aims to achieve an average price for a trade over a specific time period, typically by executing the trade in smaller increments throughout the time period. This can help to reduce market impact and minimize price volatility.
  • VWAP (Volume-Weighted Average Price) is similar to TWAP, but it takes into account the volume of the trade as well as the time period. This can help to ensure that the trade is executed at a price that reflects the overall market conditions at the time of the trade.
  • Price momentum-based strategies are execution strategies that seek to capitalize on short-term price movements in the market. These strategies typically involve executing trades when the price is moving in a particular direction, with the aim of taking advantage of the momentum of the market.
