BTCUSD Index tracks the USD price of Bitcoin on spot markets, which got updated every 5 seconds. Currently, it is made up of the latest prices from Bitstamp, Coinbase Pro and Kraken, with the same weight. The unforeseeable uncertainty of some exchange(s) might lead to a change of the constitution of DueDEX BTCUSD Index. For example, if an exchange is disabled, or some feed is not working, DueDEX will automatically remove that exchange from our BTCUSD Index until it returns to normal.
DueDEX’s BTCUSD Index is a composite index, which means it’s a price collection from several mainstream exchanges. This index should represent the overall average price level and should have ruled out malicious market manipulation.
