OTC Desk Insights

The second week of December BTC has seen a pullback to $40,500 USD seen on Monday, currently trading around the $42,754 USD level. Optimism in the crypto market is still strong despite this correction, some alt-coins have in fact rallied these past few days – Cardano (ADA) is up 35% and AVAX 53% over the past 7 days. This week our desk has seen relatively equal buying and selling pressure across the major coins. BTC has been trading higher for eight consecutive weeks, this streak has not been seen since 2017. With that said, according to a research from Kaiko, a leading data analytics and research provider; in order for a bull market to be solidified we still need market depth to return in order to see prices continue to rise.

Each year has brought major changes in the crypto landscape, and one geographic shift that has taken place over the last year has been the United Arab Emirates; the UAE has become a popular home to some of the largest crypto companies due to its inviting regulatory environment and deep pockets. Bloomberg had reported that to date there are more than 5000 special purpose vehicles (SPV’s) registered in the emirate’s international economic zone known as the Abu Dhabi Global Markets (ADGM), this is compared to just 46 SPV’s in 2016. The list includes vehicles linked to India’s Adani family, hedge fund billionaire Ray Dalio and Russian steel magnate Vladimir Lisin. The growth seen in the UAE is still positive news for the asset class as a whole and there are still many business leaders that believe the US can support these companies and investors who are pioneering the industry.

With all the stress of the holidays while in a rush I transfered over 600$ US to Netcoins from another platform. Its usually a very simple transaction witch Ive done several times. This time I send it to the wrong wallet ,it seemed as if I lost my transfer into the Blockchain. Thanks to Justin customer service representative at Netcoins I was able to get back the full amount with in 24 hours . Netcoins, thank you for the great service and saving my money .

Very responsive customer service. App itself still can use lot of work but covers basics. After security verification, best exchange for fiat-crypto on/off ramp so far imo.

A trustworthy experience! What made my experience great is the following. When I did the interac transfer to send money to my Netcoins wallet I forget to put my Netcoins account number is the note. Then it dawned on me to write Netcoins and ask how long the transfer takes. The support team quickly handled my request within minutes after having sent in an email to their zen desk for support. What made it absolutely trustworthy is my email for etransfers is different than the email for my account with Netcoins. The security measure that were taken to make sure it was I, holder of these two emails, was remarkable. This issue was quickly resolved with back and forth emails until the funds they deposited my funds to my Netcoins wallet. A trustworthy experience that I appreciate. It showed me how Netcoins really takes good care of their clients. Yvonne

Although I very rarely leave reviews good/bad this one I felt needed too! I have found previously applying to sites frustrating especially when you get into verification processes etc. so several times today I called to verify because "big surprise" I was uncertain of a certain task that needed to be completed and I didn't want to make a mistake and hold my verification up . Customer service was probably the best I have ever encountered , knowledgeable, prompt, friendly and just overall really helpful ; no bouncing you from dept. to another dept. no endless prompts" for this problem press 1" all the way thru to "for this problem press 9" , no "were experiencing higher than usual calls your expected wait time is 90 minutes". I'm new to crypto; but knowing that the help I received today is less than 5 minutes away if needed , made this experience awesome .
