Our Benefits

Collectors enjoy working with Otis because of the optionality that we can provide:

  1. No Fees - We do not charge any listing fees. Compared to auction houses who charge a buyer's premium of 20% and seller fees of 10%. You can view our calculator here.

  2. Retained Equity - Our collectors can keep a % of the asset to hold for the long-term while receiving near-term liquidity from the proceeds of the Drop (IPO).

  3. Liquidity - Our platform supports multiple options for liquidity

    1. Drops - Cash upon drop closing

    2. Secondary - We have a trading platform that allows our investors to buy and sell shares.

    3. Buyout - We allow full buyouts of any of the assets on the platform.

How Listing Works

  1. Submit Your Asset

  2. Agree on Valuation & Retained Equity

  3. Ship item to Otis (where all items are vaulted, stored, and insured)

  4. Asset drops (IPOs) on the Otis Platform

  5. Asset goes into secondary trading (30-45 days after the drop closes)
