Leveraging their extensive network data offerings, the index was used by some prominent names in the cryptocurrency space, including Fidelity Investments, Osprey Funds and BlockFi. 

Following their recent success, Coin Metrics also unveiled two new institutional products focused on network risk management and universal block explorer. 

“The tremendous interest we are seeing in these offerings reinforces the value of on-chain data to institutions engaging in crypto assets. I couldn’t be more proud of what the team has built over the past 12 months. Our data is clearly on a path to becoming an integral part of the infrastructure for the future of finance,” said Coin Metrics CEO Tim Rice.
