In January, CoinDesk announced its acquisition of TradeBlock, the world’s leading crypto index provider for financial institutions. Its indexes will now assume the CoinDesk name, combining products used by the largest trading desks and asset managers in crypto with the CoinDesk brand, trusted globally as the leader in crypto news, events and data. 

Reliable data is the nexus between crypto assets and regulated financial markets. CoinDesk Indexes is already making it possible for many financial institutions and individuals to access these markets. Through new products, and the growth of existing products, we will continue to expand access and understanding in this emerging category. 

CoinDesk Indexes are the industry standard for institutional-grade digital currency price references with billions of dollars in monthly trading volume quoted against them. The flagship TradeBlock Bitcoin XBX, a spot reference rate for bitcoin that benchmarks the world’s first publicly traded bitcoin fund and the world’s first bitcoin ETF, will now be known as the CoinDesk Bitcoin Price Index (XBX). TradeBlock’s suite of more than a dozen index products will follow the same naming convention, becoming the core offering of CoinDesk Indexes. 

Underlying those new brand names, TradeBlock’s index methodology, calculation and construction will remain the same. TradeBlock will continue to adhere to the standards of integrity, robustness and reliability that have always differentiated its indexes. 

In addition to the suite of existing products, listed below, CoinDesk Indexes is developing new ones, including both single-asset reference rates for an expanding list of assets and multi-asset indexes designed to cover diversified investment opportunities in the crypto asset category.
