Traders at Bloomberg Terminal
A representative of Bloomberg declined to comment on this event in a conversation with Fortune, but a source familiar with the situation claims that the new feature was added specifically for traders trading in foreign currency markets. He also said that data on the movements of the rates for his terminal Bloomberg draws from the Bitstamp exchange.
One of the reasons of this news can be the growth of overall cryptocurrency market cap especially Ripple (+210%, 7d), Ethereum (+47%, 7d) and Litecoin (+154%, 7d).
