Standard Kepler

Research

Research - we pride ourselves on providing the market with insights that are:

Actionable

Everything is information, and information is everything. The latest unemployment figures, a client's name card, or the pitch deck of a project - this is all information. We like to think of insights as the instructions for information; the intuition to know which information to act on, and which form of action to pursue.

Deep

We are privileged to work with clients from a diverse range of sectors and backgrounds, all facing their own unique challenges and opportunities. Each new project offers us a chance to explore the cogs of a market and how they all spin at different paces and in different directions, yet all interconnected.

Honest

Honesty is a core principle in all our work, and insights are only useful as long as they provide an unbiased perspective. Just as we look for technical utility in all projects we engage with, we always seek to generate real utility ourselves through our market shaping research on crypto markets.

Our research distribution partners include:

Standard Kepler Research Distribution with Thomson Reuters
Standard Kepler Research Distribution with BTC.com
Standard Kepler Research Distribution with Jinse (金色财经)
Standard Kepler Research Distribution with Binance
