Paradigm was born out of our own frustrations with the institutional OTC trading process. After spending hundreds of hours trading and navigating the inefficient, multi-channel nature of traditional OTC markets, we thought to ourselves: “there has to be a better way.”
Paradigm is that better way.
Paradigm is backed by Dragonfly Capital, Digital Currency Group, OK Group, Bybit Fintech, Alameda Ventures (FTX), Vectr Fintech Partners, CoinShares, XBTO Ventures, Monex Group, Yleana Venture Partners and some of the most influential private investors in the OTC markets.
We are headquartered in New York City.
For traders and investors, finding liquidity that is tailored to their price, size, risk, and settlement preferences can be an extremely challenging task. There is always a feeling that you are compromising on one of these variables at the time of execution.
Paradigm’s mission is simple: on-demand liquidity for traders, anytime and anywhere without compromising on trading preferences, execution costs and immediacy.
We obsess over our customers. We work vigorously to deeply understand what their needs are and clearly define the problem we are solving for them
We are all owners. We lead by example and hold each other accountable to delivering on what we promise. We think long-term, set big goals, communicate clear direction and drive results within our teams and with our partners.
Ego is the enemy of growth. We are committed to growing both personally and as a firm and aren’t afraid to accept and learn from our mistakes.
Speed is a competitive advantage. We ship products incrementally and are committed to being first to market
Hire and Recognize the Best
Every hire must raise the performance bar and improve the cultural identity of the firm. We recognize the best in people and give them the flexibility to move within the organization
Fairness and Inclusivity
We build products and a culture that enables access and opportunity without discrimination
