June 09, 2022 - Bloomberg has expanded its coverage of cryptocurrency data on the Bloomberg Terminal to include the top 50 crypto assets, including Bitcoin, Ethereum, Binance Coin, XRP, Solana and more. Clients can now monitor intraday pricing for an expanded universe of cryptos, indices and futures contracts in real-time.

Bloomberg began providing Bitcoin prices on the Bloomberg Terminal in 2013. With the growth of institutional interest in investment strategies involving cryptos, in 2018 Bloomberg expanded the scope of available instruments to 10, and now to the top 50.

"Our mission is to help the global institutional investor community to seamlessly incorporate digital assets into their workflows in a trusted and familiar way, on the Bloomberg Terminal," says Alex Wenham, product manager for cryptocurrencies at Bloomberg. "As this market develops, we will continue to evolve our data-driven offerings to help our clients define and develop their strategies in this space."

Bloomberg Terminal users can monitor intraday pricing for the top 50 crypto assets, indices, and futures contracts in real time by visiting CRYP .

Bloomberg also provides unified position management capabilities for clients investing in traditional and crypto assets through its integration of Elwood Technologies with Bloomberg AIM, a leading buy-side order management system.

Recently, Bloomberg and Kaiko issued the first series of Financial Instrument Global Identifiers (FIGIs) covering crypto assets.
