The Intercontinental Exchange, the parent company of the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE), released a new Data Feed for the digital asset market. There will be several digital assets listed to increase transparency in the crypto space.
Please find the official tweet below from @icedataservices

Out of the top 10 digital assets, the only one we did not find in the list which is kinda surprising is the Binance Coin. Not sure why? But I am sure as time goes on, we will find out the reasoning behind this.
This is a step in the right direction for the digital asset market.
The Intercontinental Exchange is also working on the Bakkt platform for institutional investors. The ICE is trying to create the necessary infrastructure for companies to enter the crypto market in an environment that is built with the standards seen in the traditional financial world.
Last week we covered an article which you can find here:
In this article, we spoke about how Nasdaq wasn’t the biggest fan of Bitcoin for several reasons and how they have been in talks with Ripple and what they are doing with XRP. It is nice to see 58 assets make the list, as we know there will not be 1 clear winner that comes out of this new asset class.
There are different fiat currencies available as well, including the Argentine Peso (ARS), the Chinese Yuan (CNY), the Euro (EUR), the US Dollar (USD), the Russian Ruble (RUB), the Turkish Lira (TRY) and the Korean Won (KRW), among others.
