Lykke invites research community to participate in the best research paper competition.

 

Lykke is building a global marketplace where all asset classes and instruments can be traded. The exchange went live in June 2016 and is now in beta mode. Tradable assets include FX, bitcoin and Lykke coins (equity of Lykke). Lykke Exchange is using semi-centralized architecture. Matched orders are settled on the Bitcoin blockchain, where each successful trade between parties appears as a set atomic colored coins swap transaction. The exchange does not take possession of the traded coins, but needs to be trusted to match trades correctly. For more details see Lykke Exchange white paper https://lykke.com/ico/Whitepaper_LykkeExchange.pdf

Settlement on the blockchain creates a transparent post-trade trail, where all transactions are logged with unique ID (hash), global timestamp, quantities exchanged and counterparties wallets addresses. The market maker wallet transactions can be seen directly on the blockchain  https://www.coinprism.info/address/anJBX5sKFK4vnbywKWE2NQa9xrvLJEqRAB2 (web), https://api.coinprism.com/v1/addresses/anJBX5sKFK4vnbywKWE2NQa9xrvLJEqRAB2/transactions?format=json (JSON)

In addition to that Lykke Exchange publishes detailed tradelog with internal timestamps and pricing information. The tradelog data are available on Lykke web-site https://lykke.com/city/tradelog. Fields description can be found in the XLS spreadsheet attached below.

Papers should be provided in PDF format.

The best paper and 3 second best will be awarded prizes.

Selected papers will be invited to be presented on Perm Winter School 2017, that will take place on 3-4 February in Perm State University (http://permwinterschool.ru).

Potential research directions include (but not limited to):

  • empirical market microstructure;
  • scaling laws;
  • market design;
  • market ecology and market participants’ behavioral studies;
  • market abuse detection;
  • settlement finality;
  • macroeconomic impact of digitizing financial assets and consequences for systemic risk.
