Kaiko to Provide Reference Rates for Cboe Digital’s Futures Settlement.

November 28th, 2023

Working together to provide crypto futures in a regulated environment.

Kaiko is pleased to join forces with Cboe Digital to provide reference rates for settlement of margined Bitcoin (BTC) and Ether (ETH) futures contracts. Set to launch on January 11, 2024, this offering addresses the growing demand for regulated crypto investment products in U.S. markets.

Kaiko is the leading crypto data and indices provider, providing high-quality and compliant market information since 2014. Cboe Digital will be the first U.S.-regulated crypto native exchange and clearinghouse to enable both spot and leveraged derivatives trading on a single platform. Cboe Digital is intermediary-inclusive, strives to ensure separation of duties to help avoid conflicts of interest and uses an integrated exchange and clearinghouse model that will allow it to potentially bring more unique and groundbreaking offerings to the crypto markets in 2024.

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 U.S. dollars against the Cboe Kaiko Rates, the Cboe Kaiko Bitcoin Rate (“CKBR”), and the Cboe Kaiko Ether Rate (“CKER”), which are developed and administered by Kaiko Indices, Kaiko’s regulated indices and benchmarks division.

Kaiko’s rates are designed to provide a representative and broad reflection of crypto markets. The Cboe 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 aberrations.
