The CoinDesk BPI spiked this weekend because of a reporting error in the data supplied by the exchange LakeBTC.
Shanghai-based cryptocurrency exchange LakeBTC has launched a new HTML5-based trading tool dubbed LakeTrader.
Cryptocurrency exchange LakeBTC has enabled GBP and JPY deposits and added the option for customers to trade with the two currencies.
LakeBTC users can now use the Ripple network for deposits and withdrawals to avoid cumbersome international bank transfers.
CoinDesk has added two exchanges, LakeBTC and Huobi, to its US dollar and Chinese yuan Bitcoin Price Indexes, respectively.
