LakeBTC.com is excited to announce our partnership with CoinDesk. Effective immediately, LakeBTC becomes one of the four major bitcoin exchanges that decide CoinDesk Bitcoin Price Index (BPI). CoinDesk BPI represents an average of bitcoin prices across leading global exchanges that meet certain criteria, and is intended to serve as a standard retail price reference for industry participants and accounting professionals.
Since bitcoin market is distributed and fragmented by nature, a trustworthy and reliable price index becomes an extremely important foundation to all financial products on top of it. Bitcoin derivatives and structured products need an underlier that is stable and difficult to manipulate. As one of the most influential media in cryptocurrencies, CoinDesk selected four prominent bitcoin exchanges with most activities and user coverage to build the well recognized BPI, a true benchmark of the global market. We are certain that an increasing number of market players and financial products will employ BPI as the reference price, and our partnership will benefit bitcoin users worldwide.
