FTSE Russell is working with DAR Data Services (DAR) to introduce an indicative FTSE Digital Assets Index. The index will be used to evaluate and test a benchmark for the most actively traded digital assets, and is designed to help the establishment of industry standards and transparency in the digital assets market. The indicative index, which will be available to registered users, will be calculated every 15 seconds, 24×7 with data sourced from selected digital exchanges vetted and approved by DAR. FTSE Russell will also provide a Volume Weighted Average Price (VWAP) for all 100 constituent digital assets.
