The goal of the partnership
Thanks to BNC’s data, tFOSE will be able to offer cash-settled cryptocurrency derivatives to clients around the world.
BNC will be able to calculate, design, and administer a vast array of crypto indices, which would be used for powering cash-settled options trading on the derivatives exchange.
tFOSE’s chief executive and president, James Beattie, commented on the partnership with BNC. He said that the company chose this crypto data provider after extensive research of numerous companies.
The choice was clear after it was established that Brave New Coin meets all of the exchange’s needs. On top of that, it has a rather unique approach to index designing, governance, and methodology.
All of this will help the exchange meet the needs of its clients, be they institutional or retail investors.
LTC index will be the first to arrive
As for when crypto options trading will start, tFOSE expects it at some point in 2021. At this point, it is still not able to provide a more specific date. According to its current estimates, indices will become available for production by the end of this year. The first index to see launch will be the ‘tFOSE BNC Litecoin Index,’ as the companies revealed.
