On December 22, 2020, Brave New Coin (BNC), a digital asset data infrastructure firm, announced the launch of two new indices on BTSE, a multi-currency spot, and futures exchange. The two indices are the Blockchain Interoperability Index and the Maker Vault Index.
About The Brave New Coin Indices
Both of the indices are institutional-grade products that will be available via the BTSE exchange from December 23, 2020. In the future, there are plans to avail them on other BNC partner exchanges. The Maker Protocol, which is governed by MakerDAO is one of the biggest DApps on Ethereum. The Maker Vault Index is a rule-based sector index that will measure the growth of crypto assets locked in the Maker Vaults. It tracks the real-time performance of the eight biggest assets in this vault. BNC has provided a detailed explanation of how the index works.
Blockchain interoperability is emerging as an important industry. It aims to allow different blockchains to communicate with each other directly. The Blockchain Interoperability Index will measure the growth of projects in the blockchain interoperability space. It will track, in real-time, the market performance of the 10 biggest interoperability crypto assets. Some of the crypto assets included in the index are Cardano (ADA) and Polkadot (DOT). BNC has provided a detailed explanation of how the index works.
Brave New Coin Strengthening Ties With BTSE
At the start of 2020, BNC extended its partnership with BTSE. Under the partnership, BTSE will provide institutional indices that track the real-time performance of digital assets. At the time, they launched a DeFi Index and perpetual swap derivative products.
