TradingView, the U.S.-based provider of financial markets data charts and analysis, has added a cryptocurrency index to its platform for the first time.

Crypto exchange Huobi announced Monday that TradingView has added its “HB10” index, in a move it said showed the “continued maturation” of the digital assets industry. The index can already be accessed on TradingView.

Huobi launched the HB10 index back in May to track a basket of the top cryptocurrencies (based on liquidity and market capitalization) traded on its platform in real-time against U.S. dollar-pegged stablecoin tether (USDT).

Livio Weng, CEO of Huobi Global, said in today’s announcement:

“As a go-to site for high-volume and API [application programming interface] traders as well as the retail commodity, forex, and of course crypto trading community around the world, we feel TradingView is a perfect fit for HB10.”

The HB10 index’s currently lists nine major cryptocurrencies, including bitcoin (BTC), EOS, ether (ETH), XRP, bitcoin cash (BCH), litecoin (LTC), TRON (TRX), ethereum classic (ETC) and ontology (ONT). It also includes Huobi’s native Huobi Token (HT), which is ranked 62nd overall by market cap on data site CoinMarketCap.

TradingView has also added all of Huobi’s crypto-to-crypto trading pairs to its platform, Huobi said.

“This is just the beginning. As additional coins and pairs are added to Huobi Global, they will also appear on TradingView as well,” Weng added.

Back in June, Bloomberg also added Huobi’s HB10 index to its terminal service.
