GSR Launches Variance Swaps: A Structured Product for Hedging Bitcoin Volatility 

One of the oldest and most reputable digital asset trading firms in the world has launched a product that allows investors a new way to hedge or speculate on the volatility of Bitcoin and other digital assets

Hong Kong, April 24 – GSR, a global leader in algorithmic digital assets trading and market making, has launched its latest product, the Bitcoin Variance Swap. Investors, traders, and companies can now purchase and hedge their digital asset portfolio against the volatility of Bitcoin through the GSR Bitcoin Variance Swap.

Volatility in the world of cryptocurrency often makes front page news as massive swings in and out of the nascent market can cause huge fluctuations in value of digital asset portfolios. Volatility measures the magnitude of price changes of any given market. For the crypto markets, high volatility is part of the game. The introduction of a Bitcoin Variance Swap will allow traders, investors, and companies the ability to hedge against market volatility that happens during Bitcoin price fluctuations. In the beginning of April, Bitcoin experienced a 200% increase in volatility.

“We are introducing a new product into the world of digital assets that allows traders, investors, businesses or anyone who holds a serious portfolio, to hedge against and take advantage of one of the most common and intimidating parts of crypto markets: volatility,” said Cristian Gil, Co-Founder of GSR. “While GSR is a veteran in this space, many of the financial instruments that are common in traditional finance have not made their way to the digital asset space.  We believe that this product will be a mainstay of portfolio managers in the months and years to come.”

GSR was founded in 2013 and remains one of the most experienced companies in digital asset trading and market making. GSR has built one of the fastest, most versatile, and most robust trading systems in the industry. They have successfully traded and managed billions of dollars’ worth of digital assets through their unique software. Their team draws experience from many traditional finance and tech titans such as Goldman Sachs, Oracle, and IBM, bringing world-class financial knowledge together under one crypto roof.
