Thomson Reuters Partners with Cryptocurrency Aggregator
Thomson Reuters is partnering with CryptoCompare, a cryptocurrency market data aggregator, to integrate order book and trade data for 50 cryptocoins onto its Eikon platform.
In a release issued today the two companies claim that adding CryptoCompare’s data to the Eikon platform will allow trading professionals and investors to gain a comprehensive view of the cryptocurrencies market and of market participant behaviour, enabling them to predict price movements with a high degree of probability.
Eikon users will be able to see data for actively trading coins, allowing them to potentially identify buy and sell opportunities and expand their digital asset portfolios.
Charles Hayter, CEO and founder of CryptoCompare, says: “As the digital asset markets mature, we see a fast-growing demand from the institutional investor community for comprehensive, real-time and global market data, which can be trusted as the basis for investment decisions. We are excited to enter into this partnership with Thomson Reuters; we have always sought to provide transparency to this market and this partnership provides a great opportunity for the institutional investor community to access not only our data, but also to benefit from our experience and insight.”
Sam Chadwick, director of strategy in innovation and blockchain at Thomson Reuters, says: “Despite the decline in the price of many of the leading cryptocurrencies during 2018, we continue to see increasing demand from our customers for pricing coverage of the major names. We have been engaged with CryptoCompare since their involvement in our blockchain hackathon in September 2016, and continue to be very impressed by their approach to coverage of these challenging markets. This partnership puts pricing data for this emerging market alongside other asset classes, giving our customers a more comprehensive trading view in Eikon.”
