For major institutions, miners and other corporates involved in the space, options open a new, powerful tool for managing risk and volatility. But, as we can see from other financial markets, these capabilities won’t come from the listed options themselves. Instead, the real action will take place in over-the-counter hedges.
Options and Structured Products
GSR’s Structured Product Offering (SPOs) is designed to facilitate highly customized risk management solutions for counterparties with exposure to digital assets.
Derivatives make future risks tradable, which creates the two main uses for them: hedging and investments. Institutions like to eliminate uncertainty by exchanging market risk, they use derivatives to protect themselves from a change in a market that would put their business, or its profitability, at risk.
NEW TOOLS FOR RISK MANAGEMENT
In 2019, GSR pioneered many new tools for risk management in the digital asset space, including Extendable Swaps, the Bitcoin Accumulator, and Binary Options. GSR traded the first ever Variance Swap on bitcoin in June 2019, a staple of risk management products in traditional finance.
