Exploring Supply Transparency
In an industry as dynamic and boundary-defying as digital assets, the confluence of two leading research teams—each hailing from a different corner of the globe, just like how decentralized networks operate—marks an occasion for both celebration and intellectual intrigue. This partnership between an institutional focused U.S.-based crypto analytics firm, Coin Metrics, and Bitcoin Suisse, a Swiss stalwart deeply embedded in the innovative spirit of Crypto Valley, manifests the borderless nature of digital assets, affirming them as a truly global asset class.
Our collaboration is one that draws upon our respective strengths; the data-driven approach of Coin Metrics meshes harmoniously with the market acumen and decade-long historical perspective provided by Bitcoin Suisse. With Bitcoin Suisse steering the research outline, conceptual framework, and token selection, and Coin Metrics providing high-caliber datasets and metrics, we have turned our collective attention to a topic of increasing relevance: token supply transparency and its relationship to liquidity.
For the first time in financial history, the transparent architecture of public blockchains allows us to track the flow of funds between crypto wallets in real-time, offering unprecedented insights into supply dynamics and liquidity at multiple dimensions and granularities. What follows is the fruit of this synergistic endeavor; we trust you will find it as enlightening as we found the process of its creation.
Highlighting Supply Liquidity
One of the key insights explored in this report centers on the insights provided by Coin Metrics Free Float Supply metric, which can be used to understand the proportion of an asset’s liquid supply. We apply this framework to offer insights on how a bullish catalyst can manifest across various digital assets, determining the comparative advantage of assets based on their supply liquidity.
The partnership between Coin Metrics and Bitcoin Suisse marks a significant step forward in enhancing our understanding of the digital assets space. This research provides insights into the relationship between token supply transparency and liquidity, a topic of paramount importance to the evolving dynamics of the cryptocurrency market.
