The future of
Digital Assets OTC

Pioneering the way in
Digital Assets, Chain Partners.



Chain Partners OTC is Korea's first fully compliant Digital Assets OTC Trade desk.

Chain Partners OTC has established its trading network with the world's leading crypto OTC trade desks including Circle, Cumberland, FBG, Galaxy Digital, Kenetic, OSL, and QCP. Chain Partners is the first Korean crypto OTC trade desk observing Know Your Customer (KYC) and Anti-Money Laundering (AML) regulations. It also offers digital asset custody solutions for institutions and individual clients.


Since 2018, Chain Partners OTC has developed into the largest crypto asset OTC desk in Korea.

Chain Partners OTC began with the establishment of Chain Partners, Korea's first blockchain company builder, in July 2017. The Chain Partners OTC desk re-wrote the history of Digital Assets over-the-counter trading by conducting identity verification (KYC) and anti-money laundering (AML) compliance when few other players did. Chain Partners OTC formally launched its services in August 2018, with strict compliance to regulations.

Transparent and evidence-based transactions are a must for protecting buyers and sellers. Through painstaking efforts to create a "professional digital asset OTC trading" market, Chain Partners OTC has grown dramatically, with domestic trading volume worth KRW 5 billion a month (KRW 12 billion for cumulative transactions) during December 2018 alone.
