Toronto-based Thomson Reuters Corporation (TMX: TRI) has added Bitcoin Cash (EXANTE: Bitcoin.Cash) to its financial information terminal Eikon. This is the third cryptocurrency that the platform has added, after Bitcoin (EXANTE: Bitcoin) and Ethereum (ETH/USD), Finance Magazine reported.
This move comes after its competitor, Bloomberg Terminal, introduced Ethereum, Litecoin (LTC/USD), and Ripple recently.
In 2014, Eikon first listed Bitcoin on its terminal by taking the market data feeds directly from the Luxembourg-based cryptocurrency exchange Bitstamp.
With this news, the price of BCH jumped against USD to touch $2,500 from around $1,900 in the last 24 hours, gaining more than 20 percent of its value. The trading of the coin also skyrocketed and in the last 24 hours, trading volume is recorded to be over $3.2 billion.
BCH has been on the rise since the cancellation of Segwit2x in November, gaining 405 percent in value. Bitcoin Cash currently holds a market cap of above $37.5 billion.
Launched in 2010, Eikon is Reuters’ flagship financial information platform. The platform is now connected with over 400 exchanges and OTC-traded markets, and over 70 direct exchange feeds, delivered via low latency data feeds. It is also one of the leading market data terminals used by trading professionals and brokers.
