Expertise is important in digital assets
Interest in digital assets has continued to grow, and as a leader in data, indexes and analytics we have taken note. We have partnered with Digital Asset Research for their expertise in cryptocurrency research for traditional markets. Together, we have been working with regulators globally to offer tools to the institutional community for assessment and potential portfolio inclusion. We are putting the tools and methodology in place to facilitate trust and credibility in these assets, bridging the gap between “crypto-native” providers and the traditional investment community.
The digital asset market has lacked reliable and definitive pricing data, as price data from free price aggregators focused on quantity over quality, and included manipulated data. It is here that our journey begins, providing transparent and reliable data on price and market structure to address institutional investor and regulator concerns. This is underpinned by a transparent and rigorous process to vet the more than 350 digital asset exchanges. Trading venues must pass all vetting tests to be included as a price source. There are two levels determining inclusion in separate data streams.
