With OTC trades you are able to buy & sell CEL tokens through your verified CEL account. If you don't have a Celsius account yet, that is the first necessary step to take and you can follow our guide on how to open one here.
At the moment there is a minimum buy limit of $5,000 for an OTC trade and you may use fiat or crypto to process your payment - the accepted coins/tokens to do that are currently USD, BTC, ETH, and Stablecoins.
Once you decide to go ahead with your purchase, you need to contact our OTC team by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with your request.
Please note that US customers are only eligible for OTC trades if they are accredited investors. Furthermore, tokens sold to US customers need to be locked for 1 year to comply with US regulations. During that time locked tokens still accrue interest, but they cannot be used as collateral.
For non-US customers, there is no lock on the coins - unless the purchase is done with a discount deal and, in that case, there is a 5-day lock put in place.
