“The New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) has today announced the launch of a bitcoin price index (NYXBT).

NYXBT will represent the daily US dollar value of one bitcoin at 4pm (BST) and will be published on the NYSE Global Index Feed (GIF).

For a limited period it will also be viewable on the NYSE’s website.

Thomas Farley, NYSE group president, said in a statement:

“Bitcoin values are quickly becoming a data point that our customers want to follow as they consider transacting, trading or investing with this emerging asset class.”

The NYSE is not the only firm on Wall Street investing in the digital currency.

Multinational banking giant Goldman Sachs recently participated in a $50m funding round raised by bitcoin financial services startup Circle.

Just last month, developers at the Bank of New York Mellon Corp were revealed to be experimenting with bitcoin’s open-source code on the bank’s new corporate recognition program.
