B2C2, a liquidity provider for crypto markets, said clients can now trade over-the-counter options electronically, in an expansion beyond the “voice via chat” options trading started a year ago.

The seven-year-old firm, a unit of the Japanese financial firm SBI Holdings, claims the Options Chain offering is a first for digital-asset markets, where players say they’re moving to accommodate fast-growing interest in crypto from institutional investors.

Over-the-counter trading is when transactions take place outside of exchanges, typically with more flexibility in contract terms and credit acceptance.

“This functionality transforms OTC options trading by giving traders a choice of how to execute off-exchange trades,” B2C2 said Monday in a press release.

Dominic Lohberger, head of trading at Switzerland-based Sygnum Bank, said in the press release his firm executed the first trade with B2C2 on the new platform.
