TrueDigital Holdings (TDH), a subsidiary of swap execution facility trueEX, has partnered with three additional contributors to its OTC pricing indices for Bitcoin and Ether, building on the success of similar benchmarks that leverage price data from a suite of crypto exchanges.
TrueDigital’s product provides institutional-grade resources and real-time information for those trading in cryptocurrency markets through a standardized reference rate and spot price index.
CMT Digital, Blockfills, and QCP Capital join nine other cryptocurrency exchanges and trading platforms in providing pricing data for TrueDigital’s benchmark, including Genesis Global Trading, XBTO Group, Circle, DV Chain, Hehmeyer, and Altonomy, with more exchanges to be added over time.
The product aggregates the trade flow of these exchanges during a specific calculation window into a reference rate of the US dollar price. Calculation rules are geared toward real-time replicability in underlying spot markets.
