Vertex is the world’s very first Over-The-Counter Token Market, allowing you to buy and sell tokens without the need for a traditional exchange. As an OTC platform, Vertex will also provide large amounts of liquidity to formerly non-liquid, digital assets. This can only prove positive for the market, and for those looking to invest in these digital assets. Vertex Market is a one of a kind platform for both retail and institutional investors – allowing you to trade with exclusive tokens at preferential rates.
As a hybrid platform, Vertex has characteristics that are both centralized and decentralized. Centralized in that we don’t disclose any software code or information about stacks and libraries (for security reasons) and decentralized in that Vertex does not store any user funds on the platform. Staking is done decentralized and you can use a wallet of your choice. All transactions are done P2P, giving users full control over where their funds go.
Staking your VTEX tokens has a number of unique benefits outside of the standard framework. On traditional platforms, staking tokens is a way of earning some kind of passive income while simultaneously supporting a network of choice, but staking on Vertex is somewhat different. While those benefits do factor in, users will also receive massive fee reductions of up to 90%, depending on the amount of tokens staked and whether you are an institutional or retail investor.
Vertex is a particularly fantastic resource for retail investors. Institutions use it for liquidating their digital assets, meaning that retail investors have access to tokens that are endorsed by veteran institutional investors at vastly preferential rates to traditional exchanges.
As of right now, Vertex has close to 200 tokens available on the platform with more being added all the time. With so many options, you’re sure to find the right coin to invest in. Head to https://vertex.market to start your journey now!
