Fidelity, the financial services corporation, introduced Sherlock, a digital assets data and analytics feature that will be very useful to investors.
Sherlock was created by Fidelity to provide institutional investors very important information about crypto trading, the latest news, research, network activity, and much more. This data will be supplied by first-rate data sources and will assist with market valuations.
“It’s been exciting to see the tremendous growth in the digital assets data space over the past few years, and while the market is maturing rapidly, we’ve heard from institutional investors that there’s still a need for a comprehensive and accessible data solution. That’s what we’re introducing with Sherlock – robust and insightful datasets paired with highly intuitive tools to help clients make data-driven digital asset investment decisions.”Kevin Vora, vice president, Product Management, Fidelity Center for Applied Technology (FCAT)
Institutional investors have the possibility to access:
- Development ecosystem data and in-depth analytics
- Market data

“A major challenge when researching the crypto markets today is piecing together information from a myriad of resources. Sherlock helps us research more efficiently by giving us access to holistic, timely data, which is crucial in this fast-paced market.”Kinjal Shah, senior associate, Blockchain Capital LLC.
The Sherlock platform was created in the Fidelity Center for Applied Technology (FCAT). But what is FCAT? The Fidelity Center for Applied Technology has its Blockchain Incubator team, that collects data and gives solutions through blockchain research.
“We’re constantly exploring how emerging technologies can help meet the changing needs of the industry and our customers, and blockchain is one of our focus areas because we believe this technology, and digital assets, will play an important role in the financial industry’s future. Sherlock helps institutional investors research digital assets more efficiently, and we continue to experiment with it and explore how technology can help simplify other aspects of investing in this space.”Adam Schouela, head of emerging technology, FCAT
