WHO WE ARE
Digital Asset Research (DAR) is a provider of comprehensive data and research in the digital asset space for institutional market participants. We aim to provide clean and reliable data through our comprehensive vetting of assets and exchanges and in-depth analysis on technology, security and investment suitability.
Our data set includes both intraday and close clean pricing data, network level onchain data, valuation and performance metrics, ecosystem stats, indicators such as market cap and free float and comprehensive events data affecting the digital asset ecosystem. Our fundamental understanding of the technology underlying cryptoassets and history in financial markets provides institutional rigor to the cryptocurrency market.
DAR was conceived in early 2017 in response to the growing need for institutional quality research in the rapidly evolving digital token space. We made it our objective to provide unbiased research, analysis and insights on token projects, technologies, and other topics of interest to traditional asset managers, hedge funds, family offices, regulators, custodians, tech firms, and other institutional clients entering the cryptocurrency market.
Through our work in the research, we realized that the market lacked reliable and authoritative pricing data. Free aggregators focus on quantity over quality, often using manipulated data which results in an inaccurate price. We began to apply the objective approach we used the research to the pricing data in order to address the need for an authoritative price in the market.
Our team is comprised of traditional financial service analysts, data scientists, crypto technologists and legal/regulatory experts with experience at firms like BNY Mellon, CME Group, Citibank and UBS. We provide institutional rigor to the cryptocurrency market and use clean data, analysis and comprehensive research to help institutional clients include crypto.
