SINGAPORE, Oct. 3, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Antalpha Capital Pte. Ltd. ("Antalpha") has signed a licensing agreement to use the S&P Cryptocurrency Top 10 Index (Singapore Close), newly launched by S&P Dow Jones Indices ("S&P DJI"), on a basis exclusive to its index fund product in the Asia Pacific, Middle East, and Africa regions.
The S&P Cryptocurrency Top 10 Index (Singapore Close) seeks to track the performance of the top 10 cryptocurrencies from the S&P Cryptocurrency Broad Digital Market Index, consisting of the two largest and most liquid coins – Bitcoin and Ethereum – plus eight additional coins, weighted by market capitalization.
