Acuiti is pleased to release Digital Asset Trading, a study of how institutional firms will engage in the cryptocurrency markets in light of the bear market that has hit digital assets this year.
The study was produced in partnership with Eurex and surveyed 191 buy and sell-side firms to understand how they are both trading, or considering trading, digital assets. As well as evaluating the novel features of native crypto markets that firms must get to grips with, the report also examines the growing diversity of digital asset products offered on exchanges.
Some of the key findings of the report included:
- The slow pace of cryptocurrency regulation is pushing institutions to gain exposure to the asset class through traditional venues
- Many concerns that institutions have with cryptocurrency markets are soothed when they start actively trading the assets
- Sophistication is rapidly increasing in trading strategies, and this is driving the need for new products
- These factors are turning focus to Exchange Traded Products, like ETFs and ETNs
