SESAMm, a French FinTech specializing in big data and AI for asset management, and Kaiko, a cryptocurrency market data provider, have partnered to empower financial professionals to create more informed trading strategies.
This partnership will allow SESAMm’s clients to access granular digital asset market data and combine it with alternative data extracted from news, blogs, and social media using TextReveal. With SignalReveal’s deep data science, these inputs can be leveraged to generate trading signals.
Through this partnership, hedge funds specializing in digital assets will have access to cutting edge data science tools to build systematic and discretionary trading strategies using both market data and alternative data. The combination of Kaiko’s high quality market data with SESAMm’s alternative data extracts presents a new opportunity for innovative cryptocurrency trading signals.
