On Monday, one of Nasdaq’s three major US stock exchanges listed another cryptocurrency-related index, this time for the decentralized finance (DeFi) category.

The DeFix Index was launched in collaboration with EXANTE, a London-based brokerage firm. The tool allows you to receive real-time price information for Augur, MakerDAO and other assets.

“DeFiX is the first altcoin index that reflects the dynamics of the most promising blockchain projects operating in the decentralized finance sector: Augur, Gnosis, Amoveo, Numerai, Maker, 0x,” writes Nasdaq.

The new index is available to users of the Nasdaq Global Index Data ServiceSM (GIDS), Tradingview, Google, and in the future, Yahoo Finance, the announcement said.

In June it became known that Nasdaq is creating a cryptocurrency data service focused on institutional investors. To do this, the exchange began to cooperate with the crypto-information portal CryptoCompare.

In February, Nasdaq added support for Brave New Coin indexes for Bitcoin and Ethereum, in April — for XRP.
