Can anyone trade with B2C2?

Our clients include brokerages, hedge funds, FOREX and CFD trading firms, and family offices. Jurisdiction permitting, we do work with select high net worth individuals who pass our KYC checks. We do not service retail clients.

Due to overwhelming demand, we currently cannot onboard new clients whose expected aggregate trading volume is less than $500,000 / month.

Are there minimum / maximum trade sizes?

Clients can trade in any size from small 0.01 BTC algorithmic trades to multi-million dollar blocks. The maximum trade size is negotiated individually with each client.

Do I need to deposit funds with B2C2?

Clients do not need to have funds deposited with B2C2 prior to trading; the amount payable / receivable is transferred post-trade. In addition, trades can be aggregated so that multiple subsequent trades can be settled in a single transaction.

How do you handle settlement?

Our clients enjoy post-trade settlement. This means our clients can buy or sell crypto on our platform without first depositing any assets. This is an important distinction from exchanges, where you must first deposit the full value of cash or crypto before you are allowed to execute a transaction.

Our minimum settlement size is $50,000. We do not settle fiat or crypto values below $50,000.

Digital asset transfers can take up to 12 hours if initiated manually, depending on the account setup. Fiat transfers are usually delivered within 1-3 business days, depending on your bank and the currency.

How does the trading system work?

We use requests for quote (“RFQ”) system. Instead of placing limit or market orders [as you would on an exchange], our clients ask for a fixed price to buy or sell a given amount of BTC or ETH for example. We provide a price at which the client can execute, with no risk of slippage and no hidden fees. Accepting a quote results in a trade which is a binding contract.

How do clients connect?

Most clients access our liquidity electronically through our REST API, FIX API, and WebSocket for streaming prices. We also offer a secure web platform to trade on screen, and we support most platforms including Bloomberg, Slack, and Skype for voice trading (we have traders in key timezones).

Can I test the platform before trading?

Yes, we can provide you with an account in our sandbox environment.
