The Team

Kraken OTC strives to provide seamless and robust trading & lending solutions that cater to our high net worth and institutional clients looking to execute or borrow large amounts of crypto with best pricing, security, privacy, and minimal market impact.

Our team tackles unique challenges within crypto markets such as fragmented liquidity, slippage, execution of various yield strategies, and regulatory complexities associated with digital assets.

Joining our team means being at the forefront of the crypto industry, where your work directly influences the market and contributes to shaping the future of digital finance. You’ll collaborate with experts in a stimulating environment that values innovation, integrity, and foresight.

Recently we successfully launched an OTC Lending program that is fully collateralized allowing clients to borrow assets off-platform. Additionally we have expanded our sources of liquidity to provide better pricing to our clients.

Looking ahead, our main goals are to expand our global footprint, develop deeper liquidity pools, and pioneer innovating spot trading, derivatives, and lending products. We aim to lead the charge in regulatory advancements, sustainable crypto practices, uphold crypto culture and values, setting benchmarks for the entire industry.
