The executive order hints at more regulation of digital assets, which has implications for how institutions engage with the burgeoning asset class.
“Quant-driven hedge funds running arbitrage and quant strategies typically shine in more volatile and unstructured markets, capitalizing on their superior access to market data.

“Only time will tell how and when this market will mature. Until that point there is an opportunity now for hedge funds to utilize ultra-low latency networks to make the most of volatile, compliance-light and liquid crypto markets.”
