As of 13 September 2021, SIX has expanded its cryptocurrency index offering with the SDX Bi-Cap Index family, which comprises the SDX BTC (BitCoin) and SDX ETH (Ether) indices, as well as with the conversion of the Crypto Market Index 10 into the new SIX Crypto Market Index 10, which includes SIX Average Rates for the major cryptocurrencies (Bitcoin, Ether, Litecoin, Ripple, Bitcoin Cash ABC, Chainlink, Polkadot, Cardano, Uniswap and Dogecoin).
Christian Bahr, Head Index Services at SIX highlights: “We are expanding our range of indices and adding further coverage of the crypto currency market. Especially in this sometimes highly volatile and growing segment, it is important to provide reliable market information as an index and reference price.”
“The SDX cryptocurrency index will complement our digital asset product offering and provide reliable reference prices for Bitcoin and Ethereum,” comments Peter Golder, Global Head of Commercial at SDX.
The SIX Crypto Market Index 10 was standardized at 1,000 points on 30 December 2016, and contains up to 10 crypto assets. The SDX Bi-Cap index started at 1,000 points on 2 August 2019, and contains two major cryptos – Bitcoin and Ether.
