Blockscholes data coverage:

We have signed a partnership agreement with Deribit and Bybit, the largest and 2nd largest crypto exchanges for BTC and ETH options. The agreement gives us full ownership of the implied volatility data that we derive from the Deribit and Bybit options prices and the derived constant maturity future prices, with frequency as high as the tick.

We have an institutional grade data collection engine that collects all the data from these exchanges, and for the options we then use 2 industry-standard models to derive implied volatility data at the highest frequency. The 2 models are namely the SABR and SVI models. Given that Deribit and Bybit capture more than 90% of the total crypto options market, our aggregated implied vol data will be a much more accurate representation of the market versus calibrating to a single exchange. As such, we think beside back testing and market analysis, our data could be used to reference end of day closes and for mark to market purposes.
