AIS was created to provide high-touch investment services for digital currency and digital assets. We wanted to specifically fill the value and convenience gap between our ATM network and BitQuick services for smaller amounts and existing OTC platforms requiring very high investment amounts. Unlike typical exchanges, AIS prioritizes education, ease-of-use, and safety. We want to partner with each client to make sure they understand their digital asset investment and provide them with a quick and simple way to make a trade.
AIS approved clients have access to buy and sell the following digital currencies: Bitcoin (BTC/XBT), Ethereum (ETH), and Litecoin (LTC). More assets might be available upon request. Just ask our traders! Please call the help desk at (312) 883-8516 if you are interested in other currencies.
There is a minimum of $10,000 per coin per transaction.
Bank wires are the only accepted payment form at this time.
Athena does not charge a commission on any transaction. Rather, you will be quoted a spread over the phone based on the relevant index that is competitive with the market. The price quoted to you is all-inclusive, and there will be no additional fees charged by AIS. As in all markets, spreads depend on liquidity and market conditions. Spreads are fully negotiated at the time of trade.
