We've seen a surprising number of academic requests for options/swaps data and a lot of questions associated with it. The questions are awesome – extremely detailed, technical, and unique to the dynamics of the Bitcoin ecosystem.
It's hard to answer all of them one on one and we are doing our best but apologies if we haven't gotten back to you yet. Our plan is to set up a separate section on the site where discussion about the data (and answers from us about how certain things were calculated) will be the place to go going forward.
Thanks so much for the interest! Bitcoin options are really fun topics to talk about (also, check out our Oracle on the main page over the next few weeks, it will keep adding functionality on a regular basis).
