The feed will look to provide daily summaries that include data such as accumulated volume. In ICE’s blog post, the team mentioned an index called VWAP (Volume Weighted Average Price), which will allow users to assess “turnover value, and open/high/low/last trades for each asset by venue”.
With the help of Blockstream
ICE is the company that launched Bakkt, the cryptocurrency ecosystem that is expected to revolutionise institutional participation in cryptocurrency investment. Its data feed service aims to provide “real-time and historical data for the most widely and actively traded cryptocurrencies”. The service was launched earlier in 2019 with the help of Blockstream, and now a number of leading cryptocurrencies have finally been included.
ICE wrote on its official blog: “Access to price discovery data is crucial to assist in accurately valuing the crypto market. To help address the need for transparency and offer investors a comprehensive view, we worked with Blockstream to launch the ICE Cryptocurrency Data Feed.”

Cryptocurrency information provided by the data feed will include price discovery, historic data, exchange differences by price and by venue insight, and daily summaries including a calculated accumulated volume, the volume of weighted average price (VWAP), and turnover value.
The collaboration between the NYSE-backed ICE and Blocksteam will look to provide true price discovery for the cryptocurrency market that is aimed primarily at institutional clients and brokers.
