Beginner tutorial
Liquid Marketplace in an example
Let's say, you want to sell 1,000 ETH at the market price of $1,900. Now, that's a million-dollar trade. Once it gets put on the order book, it may cause price slippage and drive down ETH's market price. Instead of impacting the market, you can secure a favorable price by placing your oder on our Liquid Marketplace. First, send an RFQ only to the market makers you selected and receive two-way quotes. Then, choose a price you like and carry out the trade discreetly.

    What is block trading?
    A block trade is a large, privately negotiated securities transaction that is settled over-the-counter (OTC). They are common among institutional investors, hedge funds, and high-net-worth individuals deploying significant capital. When executing large orders on exchanges, traders risk disrupting the market and causing extreme price changes. Alternatively, takers and makers can agree on a settlement price discreetly and privately with a request-for-quote (RFQ).
    What is an RFQ?
    A request-for-quote, or RFQ, is an electronic notification sent to market makers expressing the sender's intention to trade a specific instrument or strategy. Market makers will be alerted once an RFQ has been sent and will be prompted to submit an ask and a bid price for the request.
