Paradigm Connect

Sep 21st, 2022
Paradigm is the largest institutional OTC liquidity network in crypto. Find and connect with our global network of 450+ counterparties, choose from multiple execution protocols and streamlined workflows to trade efficiently and effectively.

Paradigm was born out of our own frustrations with the institutional OTC trading process. After spending hundreds of hours trading and navigating the inefficient, multi-channel nature of traditional OTC markets, we thought to ourselves: “there has to be a better way.”

Paradigm is that better way. We are building the next generation of institutional OTC trading. We are backed by XBTO Ventures, Vectr Fintech Partners, and some of the most influential private investors in the OTC markets.

At Paradigm, we are changing the future of finance! By joining us at this early stage, you’ll be building cutting-edge, distributed financial service infrastructure that will reshape financial services across CeFi and DeFi markets.
