ICE Data Services President and COO, Lynn Martin, said: “With the broad array of cryptocurrencies and exchanges, and given the price variances between exchanges, it’s critical that investors have a comprehensive source of pricing information. We’re excited to work with Blockstream, which is focused on bringing institutional-quality data to the market, and we look forward to expanding the feed and our strategic relationship with Blockstream over time.”

Adam Back, Chief Executive Officer of Blockstream, commented: “At Blockstream, we build technologies that help cryptocurrency to reach its full potential. Our work on the Cryptocurrency Data Feed is providing improved cryptocurrency market data through information sharing via our open, collaborative working relationships with cryptocurrency exchanges around the world. We are excited to work closely with ICE and cryptocurrency exchanges globally to deliver this data service that we believe will significantly reduce the barriers to broader trading of bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies.”

A multi-asset and multi-venue data feed, the Cryptocurrency Data Feed captures the majority of cryptocurrency exchange trading volume for leading cryptocurrencies measured against the U.S. Dollar and other major currency pairs. Such data feed would be comparable to Coinmarketcap.combut with the support of a major exchange company such as ICE.

Blockstream is a San Francisco-based company that works with cryptocurrency exchanges around the world and consolidates the disparate data sets into a normalized and standardized data source that includes real-time and historical trade information, as well as other relevant order book data such as quantities, prices, currencies, and timestamps. Blockstream’s capabilities will allow ICE Data Services’ customers to receive global market representative trading data in a real-time feed with high quality information.
