On Wednesday, March 20, the major crypto tracking website (CMC) in a blog post announced its intention to launch two crypto benchmark indexes. Among the platforms where it will start today are NASDAQ GIDS, Thomson Reuters, Bloomberg Terminals and a few others.

The indexes are meant to track the top 200 virtual coins by their market cap. One index will include Bitcoin. The other one will not work with BTC.

What the indices are for

CMC writes that the crypto benchmark indexes will allow investors to efficiently follow the overall performance of the digital currency market. The CMC Crypto 200 Index, which covers Bitcoin, will deal with the data of over 90 percent of the world’s crypto market.

The other index – CMC Crypto 200 ex BTC Index – does not include BTC. Its goal is to monitor the way the market performs without Bitcoin’s influence. At press time, Bitcoin dominates around half of the overall market cap.

CMC CEO Brandon Chez is happy about launching the new market indexes, saying that they should make global crypto market data much more accessible and will let cryptocurrencies go deeper into financial markets.
