Bloomberg Creates Solana Price Index
Bloomberg and Galaxy Digital have added a new index to their suite of crypto data products, one focused on the digital asset Solana. The Bloomberg Galaxy Solana Index is now live on Bloomberg's Terminal, according to an announcement by Tim Grant, head of Europe for Galaxy. According to Grant, the index is denominated in USD.
"This marks our fifth index in the Bloomberg Galaxy family of indices which are posted below. In addition, the launch of this index has added significance as this is the first institutional grade pricing source for Solana which will allow for registered Solana based products in certain jurisdictions that require a global pricing source."
Galaxy and Bloomberg's index partnership dates back to 2018. In August, the two firms debuted an index focused on decentralized finance or DeFi. Such indexes are used to route pricing information for use in financial products.
While many pundits have labeled Solana as an “Ethereum killer” due to its lower fees and faster transaction times, Solana Labs co-founder Raj Gokal recently said the project has no desire to kill the cryptocurrency.
Solana Price Is Expected To Reach These Levels
