OTC

Token prices are generally set on cryptocurrency exchanges. Having said so, the largest trades happen in the more private over-the-counter (OTC) markets. The regulatory framework for innovative technologies in Malta caters for OTC desks and similar crypto activities. Offering a regulated environment, favourable tax rates, language flexibility and workforce talent, Malta is the ideal domicile for OTC companies.
