WTI (West Texas Intermediary) is one of the premier oil benchmarks in the world. The use of WTI as a pricing mechanism extends far beyond its local and refined export markets. With production accounting for over 10% of global demand, and pricing accounting for over 25% of global supply, the DGCX WTI futures contract provides accessibility to the global energy market to a wider range of participants.
Paired with the DGCX’s existing USD currency suite, the WTI futures contract will draw a stronger appeal to existing contracts on other global exchanges which are of a larger size.
