The organization has joined with New Zealand based blockchain data and Brave New Coin to offer data on the two new lists beginning Feb. 25. The BLX and ELX will offer ‘’real-time’’ data on the Nasdaq Global Index Data ServiceSM or GIDS. This is really a real-time spot or reference rate at the cost of 1 Bitcoin and 1 Ethereum individually. Both the indices are independently calculated against the International Organization of Securities Commission (IOSCO) principles. The BLX has become the most widely referenced BTC indices. Recently Nasdaq led a $20 million Series-B funding round to enterprise blockchain startup Symbiont. In order to bring a regulated crypto 2.0 future types contract to the market in 2019, Nasdaq has already made a partnership with VanEck.
