Acuiti today publishes the Q1 2023 Crypto Derivatives Management Insight Report. This report is based on a quarterly survey of the Acuiti Crypto Derivatives Expert Network, a group of senior executives from hedge funds, proprietary trading firms, asset managers and sell-side firms operational in crypto derivatives.
This quarter’s report, which is produced in collaboration with Digital Asset Research (DAR) and Cloudwall, marks the first institutional study of how the institutional market has responded to the collapse of FTX in November 2022.
Some of the key findings of the report included:
- Counterparty risk is the top concern for the crypto derivatives market
- Firms are holding less money at exchanges, onboarding third-party custody providers and calling for greater regulation of crypto-native exchanges
- Optimism is high for a recovery in digital assets markets over the next three months with 75% of the Expert Network either quite or very optimistic about the quarter ahead
- There is strong demand for a volatility index in crypto derivatives markets but it should reference more than just BTC
