Bloomberg and the crypto-trading bank Galaxy Digital Management launched Bloomberg Galaxy Crypto Index (BGCI), which will track the ten most liquid cryptocurrencies. The list includes Bitcoin, Ethereum, Ripple, Bitcoin Cash, EOS, Litecoin, Dash, Monero, Ethereum Classic and Zcash.
The reason for this decision was “the growing interest of customers to cryptocurrencies,” Bloomberg reported.
This is not the first interest in cryptocurrencies from authoritative financial institutions. Last week, Goldman Sachs announced the intention to trade bitcoin, also explaining it with client requests. Also recently, the New York Stock Exchange did not exclude that it would allow its customers to store and trade bitcoin.
