Coinbase’ Custody services are now directly integrated with the company’s newly-launched OTC desk. The good news is Custody clients will now be able to trade directly from the cold storage. This has an added advantage. This will enable users to complete the trading directly from the cold storage without worrying about moving funds online.
The move came in after the company’s clients insisted on cold storage trades since the launch of Coinbases’s OTC desk. Some of the features include a single point of contact through the entire trading process. Clients will now be able to settle assets directly with Custody.
It must be mentioned here that BitGo launched a similar product in January last year and Coinbase is believed to have followed suit. However, according to popular beliefs, Coinbase’s Custody is believed to surpass it as the exchange boasts of some of the biggest and the most popular clients. The establishment of this platform enables secured transactions, eliminating risks that come with every transaction.
Coinbase, later declared that Custody would serve the in-house clients only, but even they have cleared the KYC and AML policies for uninterrupted services. Despite the thorough checks, the exchange also confirmed that it will preserve anonymity while settling transactions.

It must be mentioned here that Stellar is considered to be the 12th most-traded Cryptocurrency in the past 48 hours. It is said to have accumulated a trading volume of over $140 billion.
