Amun is a leading cryptocurrency issuer which aims to make purchasing crypto more accessible, and efficient.

Under its 21Shares brand, Amun is the world’s largest issuer of crypto exchange-traded products (ETPs). The 21Shares suite of ETPs has simplified access to crypto for both institutional and retail investors in the traditional finance community. In a similar fashion, Amun aims to provide tokens that will make it easy for the crypto community to access sophisticated strategies that are not otherwise readily available in this space.

Amun 21Shares is a team of entrepreneurs, engineers, and financial product developers who are uniquely placed to revolutionize cryptocurrency investing through the issuance of our broad range of tokens. Our goal is to make these tokens present a new paradigm in cryptocurrency investing and to facilitate their use.

Our investment in superior technology and automation has enabled us to both release products, as well as work directly with top organizations including the Bitcoin Cash Foundation, Bitcoin Suisse, Binance, Bitwise, Coinbase, FlowTraders, Sygnum, and the Tezos Foundation as launch partners or customers of Onyx, our full stack issuance platform.

The Role

The Research team is a unique and cross-functional organization collaborating mainly with the distribution, product, and engineering teams. Education is at the core of our industrial research as we stand by free, open source and publicly accessible content and strongly believe information asymmetry contradicts crypto ethos and philosophy. More than 10,000 investors read our research notes and reports on a weekly basis; ranging from private banks, asset managers, professional traders, hedge funds, tier-1 media outlets, regulators, university professors, students and crypto researchers.

We provide data-driven, cutting-edge, contrarian and unique insights into the crypto markets and macroeconomic factors likely to influence the state of this industry or a specific sector.
