Winkdex was launched by the famous Winklevoss twins. The Winkdex website provides indices for Bitcoin and Ethereum, measured in USD. The website layout is very straightforward and displays the most current prices for the Bitcoin and Ethereum indexes. The Bitcoin index is listed as “WBBI” and the Ethereum index as “WBEI”.
Price indices for Bitcoin and Ethereum are very important, this is due to the fact that they are an emerging asset class and at the moment, they are very volatile. Furthermore, quite a significant delta exists between various exchanges (the exchanges themselves being very young too), for the prices of Bitcoin and Ethereum. This is significant as most altcoin pairs are priced against either Bitcoin or Ethereum. The Winkdex website aims to provide more clarity and accuracy in this volatile market with their blended indices.
The Winkdex website provides users with a comprehensive PDF methodology on how each of the blended indexes was created and how they weighed the prices from each exchange. Additionally, the website provides with a zip file of historical data for each of the blended prices indices. Both of these resources, reinforce the transparency of what the Winklevoss twins are trying to build and gives more confidence to the crypto community about their pricing techniques.
