“As many domestic digital asset investors use global indexes, we decided to introduce one that can help domestic investors,” an official at Dunamu said.

Market volatility indexes such as S&P VIX, V-KOSPI200, and CNNMoney’s Fear and Greed Index are used to gauge market sentiment in stock markets.

Dunamu which operates digital currency exchange Upbit, developed the Upbit Market Index, a real-time flow of all digital assets listed on the exchange.
