BEQUANT Dollar Index

The index aims to help investors to understand the spillover effects of the U.S. monetary policy on crypto. By comparing the BEQUANT Dollar Index to U.S. 10Y Treasury or the traditional DXY, users can understand if the macroeconomic environment is directly linked to the broader crypto market.

If the correlation is strong, investors can expect new releases of economic data to add volatility to the market like in the traditional finance space. It also can help investors assess coins that are independent of the market volatility.
