6:30-7:30pm – Networking Reception

Since the start of 2017 cryptocurrency trading volumes have exploded, and yet despite the astronomical growth of crypto markets the overall market cap of these assets is still relatively small compared to the types of markets that institutional investors are typically used to trading. Will these investors really take the plunge into the crypto space when volumes remain comparatively small?

In addition, there are big questions about where and how institutional investors should access this liquidity. For example, with so many providers now claiming to offer an “institutional grade” service, how should firms differentiate between them? Will consolidation amongst trading venues occur and what will the future liquidity environment look like in the crypto space?

This panel will also discuss:

  • The impact of bitcoin derivatives and the evolving OTC/exchange traded relationship.
  • What are the continuing operational challenges for institutional market participants accessing crypto liquidity?
  • Is the OTC market too opaque for institutional investors?
  • How will regulatory concerns and developments drive the liquidity landscape going forward?
  • What happens to liquidity in stressed market conditions?
