Founded in 2018, the company has ten employees, most of whom have a background in traditional finance as they came from institutions like UBS, Goldman Sachs, and Deutsche Boerse.

With its offerings, the company is aiming to target institutional investors looking for a breakthrough in the crypto investment market. According to Emmanuel Goh, co-founder and CEO of Skew, the data provided by the company will enable the traders and institutions to strategize their investments.

Though Skew is targeting the booming market of crypto derivatives with its data-based products, the company will face a lot of competition from its peers in the industry.

Earlier today, Finance Magnates reported that Flipside Crypto, a firm specializing in data parsing from blockchain, raised $7.1 million from major venture capitals including Galaxy Digital Ventures and Avon Ventures.
