Many discussions in the cryptocurrency industry right now seem to revolve around how institutional investors are preparing to dive into the space. With daily rumination about the likely acceptance of Bitcoin ETFs, the ongoing interest displayed by financial players and the release of professional trading platforms, it certainly appears that 2019 is poised for an influx of institutional money into the burgeoning field.submitted by CaspianTech to u/CaspianTech [link] [comments]
This influx could manifest itself in a number of ways, with a potential route being High Frequency Trading or HFT. This strategy of using automated tools and algorithms to track markets, detect trends and execute large trades more quickly than a human trader is well established in traditional markets.
Essentially, it is about using speed as a competitive edge and the strategy involves tactics such as colocating HFT hardware with exchange hardware and implementing high speed connections, so that data can travel as fast as possible. Right now, it’s unclear how much HFT is taking place in crypto but, with sophisticated algorithmic traders already providing a lot of the liquidity for some of the less well-known coins, it’s certainly reasonable to assume it will increase. Plus, the latest offerings from major exchanges suggest that they are aimed at servicing HFT needs.
As mentioned, this type of trading is based around the understanding that algorithms react more quickly than humans by several orders of magnitude. So, in a market composed primarily of human traders, those deploying HFT strategies clearly possess the upper hand. Over time, however, as the market becomes flooded with options for those looking to compete, the same opportunities are much scarcer as margins, and opportunities for arbitrage dwindle.
The volatility of traditional markets pales in comparison to that of the cryptocurrency ones. In the case of major stock market indices and gold, there’s an annualised volatility of 10–15% (currency pairs are even lower). Contrast that with cryptocurrency, which moves at an estimated 100%.Movements are irrational, and it’s rare that big news or observable events can be linked to price swings. The human condition is such that we constantly seek to ask why, which often leads to frustration when erratic market movements come seemingly out of the blue.
In spite of the nascency of the markets for tokens and cryptocurrencies, the space is already hugely fragmented, often leading to discrepancies in the prices of listed assets from platform to platform. Some choose to game these inconsistencies by manually purchasing the cheaper offering, transferring it to another platform and earning a profit when re-selling it at a higher price. Others are more inventive, employing simple bots coded to identify these disparities and execute trades automatically.
It’s clear that automation is the superior method. Software capable of handling billions of dollars worth of trades has been fine-tuned over the years and, given the boom in the cryptocurrency markets, it was only a matter of time before HFT technologies came into play.
Exactly what effect the increase in this type of trading will have is yet to be seen. It’s worth remembering though that, while there are elements of their approach which are unique, there are many areas of crossover with how existing traders operate.As mentioned, major exchanges have begun offering co-location of hardware in order to reduce latency and allow HFT algorithms to trade as quickly as possible. This type of infrastructure arrangement is new for the crypto space and driven by HFT’s unique needs. However, it’s worth remembering that other important areas for HFT, such as position monitoring, risk assessments and P&L management, are already served by existing crypto trading platforms.
Overall, the past several years have seen Bitcoin transition from a relatively niche asset traded by programmers and hobbyists into a serious contender on the financial playing field. The proliferation of HFT in the cryptocurrency space is just one example of how digital currencies are becoming more established as financial instruments.

Over The Counter (OTC) desks have emerged as a crucial element of the crypto trading environment in recent years. Back in April 2018, it was reported that over $100m per day was being moved via OTC — a sure indication that OTC crypto trading was emerging as a driving force behind mass adoption and price stability.submitted by CaspianTech to u/CaspianTech [link] [comments]
OTC desks give institutional and sophisticated investors the ability to make large trades without having to access an exchange. Of course, this is a function traditional finance markets have relied on for many years, particularly those such as interest rate products and foreign exchange derivatives. So it should be no surprise to see some of the biggest crypto exchanges announce new OTC desk capabilities to cope with increasing demand from institutional investors.
Coinbase opened its OTC desk in November, with the company’s Head of Sales, Christine Sandler, explaining institutional investors see OTC as the best way to start their crypto trading. Poloniex made a similar announcement in December and Binance recently announced its investment in a US-based OTC specialist. Meanwhile, an increasing number of OTC desks are offering electronic connectivity. Traders now have streaming quotes coming in, and they’re able to assess liquidity at the touch of a button.https://preview.redd.it/5np5u8f5r7h21.jpg?width=1600&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=43342c8c2ecd5daebf52fa06c6c05d79808926db
A crucial roleOTCs empower crypto traders to use their capital more flexibly and efficiently. While traders that use exchanges have to pre-fund their trades with crypto or fiat, most major OTC desks now free them from any funds-up-front restrictions. Traders can decide whether or not to deal with the OTC desk, then subsequently transfer the money.
OTC desks provide welcome fixed prices by trading off exchange — ensuring insulation and security from wild market fluctuations. In effect their role is to find a natural buyer and seller — simplifying the environment for a trader with a bespoke service. In the process, they often offer more competitive deals.
In crypto markets that trade so many different coins, and suffer from general illiquidity, this has emerged as a crucial service for traders. For those looking to trade large amounts of a single coin, OTC desks have become a natural first stop.The relative anonymity OTC desks offer can be the icing on the cake for many buyers and sellers. On exchanges, the entire world sees what you’re doing. By trading with an OTC desk, you might leak some information to the market, but not to the same extent as operating through an exchange.
An evolving environmentIt’s clear that OTC crypto trading will continue to power mass adoption and price stability this year. However, their role is inevitably going to evolve alongside the crypto environment.
At the moment there are many hundreds of exchanges, with no single exchange offering extensive liquidity — OTC desks are essential in this fragmented environment. That said, consolidation is on the horizon. Market forces will see many exchanges fall away. Many more will lose their licences as regulations are introduced. This means liquidity in crypto markets will increase, even if trading volumes don’t. There will also be a consolidation of coins too, which will increase the concentration of buyers and sellers for each coin.
On the face of it, this consolidation seems to indicate that OTC desks will become less important and that their market share will drop as the competitive advantages they offer over illiquid markets are squeezed. Institutional investors may make the most of the resulting competition, using the latest generation of crypto trading and risk management platforms, to find the best prices.
Even the funding flexibility offered by OTC desks is set to become less important as innovative crypto players like Silvergate Bank are moving towards a model that lets traders deal on exchanges then settle up with crypto or fiat afterwards.
New jobs for OTC desksNevertheless, it would be a mistake to discount the importance of OTC desks. We only have to look to traditional markets such as equities to witness the pivotal role OTC desks continue to play. Markets for asset classes such as debt and credit, which have blocks of many different types of bonds, still have a significant need for OTC brokers.
As real-world assets become tokenized over the coming years, crypto markets will increasingly resemble fixed-credit and multi-security markets. In markets such as these, traders need brokers that go out and find counterparties for them. Crypto traders will inevitably look to OTC desks to fulfil that role. Meanwhile, the relative anonymity that OTC desks offer will continue to be of value.The crypto trading environment still has a lot of evolving to do. The long-awaited liquidity of markets is one of the big changes on the horizon, and, so is the tokenization of assets. Which means this is far from the end for OTC desks. They will have a central role in this ecosystem for many years to come.
