As of December 31, 2020, there were no assets or liabilities that were measured at fair value on a recurring basis.
Transfers to/from Levels 1, 2, and 3 are recognized at the beginning of the reporting period. The estimated fair value of the Public Warrants was transferred from a Level 3 measurement to a Level 1 fair value measurement in April 2021, when the Public Warrants were separately listed and traded. There were no other transfers to/from Levels 1, 2, and 3 during the three and six months ended June 30, 2021.
The fair value of the Public Warrants is determined using the traded price.
Level 1 assets include investments in money market funds that invest solely in U.S. Treasury securities. The Company uses inputs such as actual trade data, benchmark yields, quoted market prices from dealers or brokers, and other similar sources to determine the fair value of its investments.
Level 3 instruments are comprised of derivative warrant liabilities measured at fair value using a BSM and the OPM. The estimated fair value of the Private Placement Warrants and the Public Warrants, prior to being separately listed and traded, was determined using Level 3 inputs. Inherent in a BSM and the OPM are assumptions related to expected stock-price volatility, expected life, risk-free interest rate and dividend yield. The Company estimates the volatility of its ordinary shares warrants based on implied volatility from the Company’s traded warrants and from historical volatility of select peer company’s ordinary shares that matches the expected remaining life of the warrants. The risk-free interest rate is based on the U.S. Treasury zero-coupon yield curve on the grant date for a maturity similar to the expected remaining life of the warrants. The expected life of the warrants is assumed to be equivalent to their remaining contractual term. The dividend rate is based on the historical rate, which the Company anticipates remaining at zero. 
The following table provides quantitative information regarding Level 3 fair value measurements inputs as their measurement dates:
