High-quality data combined with expert governance to create clean and trustworthy prices for futures settlement.



Kaiko is pleased to join forces with D2X to provide reference rates for settlement of Bitcoin (BTC) and Ether (ETH) futures contracts. Set to launch in Q2 2024, this offering addresses the growing demand for EU regulated crypto investment products.

Kaiko is the leading crypto data and indices provider, providing high-quality and compliant market information since 2014. D2X is the EU-regulated trading venue for institutions, listing crypto futures and options.

This cooperation helps enable institutional investors to confidently gain exposure to crypto assets via a trusted and regulated derivative offering. The contracts provide exposure to BTC and ETH and are settled in Euros using the D2X Kaiko Rates, which are developed and administered by Kaiko Indices, Kaiko’s regulated indices and benchmarks division.

“Institutions will undoubtedly play a major role in the next wave of adoption for the asset class. Our strategic partnership with Kaiko significantly enhances the D2X offering, bringing a regulated and secure infrastructure for crypto derivatives to institutions,” said Theodore Rozencwajg, Chief Commercial Officer & Co Founder of D2X.

“We are proud to support the launch of D2Xs BTC and ETH futures with trusted benchmarks for futures settlement. Since 2014, we've accompanied innovation in the crypto industry and are pleased to further support the growth of this asset class in the EU with our robust and compliant benchmarks.” commented Ambre Soubrian, CEO of Kaiko.

Kaiko’s rates are designed to provide a representative and broad reflection of crypto markets. The D2X Kaiko Rates are comprised of broad exchange constituents with competitive levels of volume and liquidity.

Kaiko’s rates help promote the integrity of the settlement price and its methodology is designed to discourage manipulative conduct and pricing anomalies.
