Thomson Reuters, the information and mass media company out of Canada, has listened to its customers. Following a continued stream of requests for the firm to provide data on cryptocurrencies, it has entered into an agreement with crypto tracking platform CryptoCompare that will see the inclusion of crypto data on Reuters\u2019 Eikon platform. According to Reuters, CryptoCompare will give the company order book and trade information on 50 different cryptocurrencies for Eikon, an institutional investment platform. Reuters Director of Strategy in Innovation and Blockchain Sam Chadwick said that market flattening in recent months has not weakened the \u201cincreasing demand from customers for pricing coverage of the major names.\u201d This isn\u2019t the first step into crypto reporting for Reuters. In June, it began tracking 100 cryptocurrencies after inking a deal with MarketPsych Data to use the latter\u2019s sources for Reuters\u2019 sentiment pool. This past March, the company first launched its sentiment tool, designed to give users data on how crypto is being leveraged around the globe. With Reuters TRMI Cryptocurrency Sentiment package, the company began monitoring more than 2,000 news outlets and 800 social media sites, generating data on 43 different sentiments related to the top 100 digital currencies. The platform incorporates visualization mechanisms and quantitative research results to allow for easy understanding of the pooled sentiment data. CryptoCompare founder and CEO Charles Hayter revealed that there has recently been an upswing in crypto interest by institutional investors. He said, \u201cAs the digital asset markets mature, we see a fast-growing demand from the institutional investor community for comprehensive, real-time and global market data, which can be trusted as the basis for investment decisions.\u201d Institutional cryptocurrency investments have, for a while, been the main topic of discussion in the crypto investment community. They are seen as a way to increase confidence and boost prices, with some analysts predicting that an increase in institutional participation could result in prices climbing as much as 400%. CryptoCompare will supply Reuters with information from a \u201cwide variety of trusted exchanges.\u201d While a specific launch date has not yet been released, given Reuters\u2019 involvement in the crypto ecosystem, and the extreme demand by its customers, it shouldn\u2019t take too much time for the program to be implemented.
