    SAINT HELIER, Jersey, Aug. 4, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — CoinShares International Limited (Nasdaq First North Growth Market: CS) (“CoinShares” or “the Company”), Europe’s largest digital asset investment platform today announced that it will be contributing real-time crypto pricing data to the Pyth network, a decentralized financial market data distribution platform for aggregated data.

    Jean-Marie Mognetti, Chief Executive Officer of CoinShares, commented, “Since launching the world’s first crypto exchange traded product (ETP) in 2015, enabling effective price discovery has been a key focus for CoinShares. A number of regulators have even cited the perceived lack of transparency related to crypto markets and pricing as a core reason to deny retail access to crypto ETPs and ETFs. Pyth network was an obvious partnership for us, as we continue to execute on our vision to unlock more transparency and establish trust in the broader crypto ecosystem using the underlying blockchain protocol to provide verifiable , trusted, real-time data to market participants.”

    CoinShares trades billions of dollars in digital assets per quarter and manages over US$3B in assets across multiple asset management platforms for investors in Europe, North America, and Asia.1 The Company has built its financial technology platform and capital markets infrastructure to enable institutions and individuals’ digital asset exposure by bridging centralized and decentralized finance. CoinShares continues to explore ways of upgrading its market infrastructure through strategic investments by adding new features including staking, yield generation and exposure to new protocols and networks for a wide range of market participants. The Company’s participation in Pyth network is another step towards this broader vision on global markets migrating on-chain to be digitized, interconnected, and operating 24/7/365 in the metaverse.

    “As a thought leader in the broader crypto ecosystem with a track record for spearheading innovative solutions for investors, we are grateful for CoinShares’ support and membership in the Pyth network,” said Kanav Kariya, Director of Strategic Initiatives, Digital Assets, at Jump Trading Group. “We believe DeFi will continue to scale and are eager to spur its acceleration through this partnership and many more to come.”
