Block Scholes welcomes D2X as its newest client

November 29, 2022

Today marks a huge success for Block Scholes as we welcome D2X, the digital asset derivatives exchange soon-to-be-regulated in the EU*, to our growing list of clients seeking more professional crypto investment tools. D2X will integrate Block Scholes’ data into their pricing tools and risk systems.

It’s extremely encouraging to see an institution of this calibre recognise the value that we provide through our comprehensive platform, which offers crypto analytics, data and research capabilities collectively to an institutional standard.

“Within D2X, we are very pleased to have entered this partnership with Block Scholes. In their implied volatility model, we found exactly the advanced solution we were looking for to help us accurately price options on our digital derivatives market. In addition, the Block Scholes service provides key elements for the state-of-the art risk management that we are implementing of these instruments. We are confident that partnering with Block Scholes contributes considerably to the quality of the D2X service offering.”

Ernest van der Hout, Chief Risk Officer at D2X

Notwithstanding the fallout from the demise of FTX, institutional investment interest in crypto markets has been steadily increasing over the long-term, but the dearth of data – such as that available to professional investors in traditional finance markets - has been a significant barrier to growth.

Existing solutions are primarily orientated towards retail investors, and lack features such as state-of-the art quantitative models, and live pricing and volatility engines for systematic trading. By combining proprietary data, interactive analytics, enterprise services, financial products and independent research on one comprehensive and intuitive platform, it’s our goal to facilitate and accelerate institutional crypto investment in a way that has not been done effectively before.
