On Wednesday, March 20, the Nasdaq Global Index Data Service (GIDS) platform, Bloomberg Terminal, Thomson Reuters Eikon (Refinitiv) and the Stuttgart Stock Exchange launch two benchmark cryptocurrency indexes from the leading market data provider CoinMarketCap. It is reported by CoinDesk.

The CMC Crypto 200 Index (CMC200) covers the top 200 digital assets by market capitalization (more than 90% of the global crypto market). The second index - CMC Crypto 200 ex BTC Index (CMC200EX) - allows to monitor market behavior without taking into account Bitcoin, which occupies more than 50% of the capitalization of the segment.

The German supplier of financial indices Solactive will deal with the administration and quarterly rebalancing of both instruments.

According to Solactive Sales Director Fabian Colin, cooperation with CoinMarketCap will allow company to develop individual indices for its customers.

CoinMarketCap added support for the Fundamental Crypto Asset Score rating system from the Flipside Crypto startup earlier this week.

GRAM May be Traded at Liquid at Triple ICO Price

Even before the official public release of the cryptocurrency of the messenger, Telegram can increase in price by 200% relative to its value during the initial offer of coins. It is reported by Bloomberg.

As previously reported, Telegram tokens may appear on the Liquid Bitcoin Exchange already on July 10. The distributor is Gram Asia, which calls itself the largest holder of GRAM tokens in Asia. It intends to put up for sale rights to cryptocurrency at $ 4 per unit.

At the same time, one of the investors said to the publication that at the time of purchase the price of 1 Gram was $ 1.33.

It is worth noting, however, that after the announcement of the public sale of Telegram tokens to Liquid, the media reported that this intention had nothing to do with the official plans of Telegram.

Then one of Telegram's investors stated that no one has the right to sell tokens before their official launch in accordance with the signed agreement. Moreover, representatives of the popular messenger noted that they first heard about Gram Asia.

Later, CEO Liquid Mike Kayamora admitted that Telegram has no relation to the placement on Liquid: the deal was concluded exclusively between the exchange and Gram Asia, which allegedly is an incubator for the TON project.

The Block's leading analyst Larry Chermak on several tweets expressed skepticism about the announced Telegram tokenale based on the Liquid stock exchange, saying that he would “think twice before making a decision to invest.”
