Details

  • The CM Reference Rates are published once a day, once an hour, once a minute, once a second, and once every 200 milliseconds and utilizes volume-weighted median, time-weighted average, and inverse price variance-weighted median techniques.
  • Common use cases for the CM Reference Rates include research, backtesting, calculating net asset value for investment funds, calculating closing prices for indexes or financial benchmarks, serving as a data source for on-chain price oracles, risk management, indicative intraday values for investment funds and financial benchmarks, and settling financial derivatives.
  • The CM Reference Rates supports multiple frequencies. The daily and hourly frequencies utilize one calculation methodology and the minute, second, and 200 millisecond frequencies ("real-time frequencies") utilize a separate calculation methodology.
  • The daily and hourly frequencies are calculated at the end of every hour and day, respectively, (the "Calculation Time") and are published within 5 minutes (the “Publication Time”). The real-time frequencies are published in real-time with no delay.
  • Please note that this metric is served through both the /timeseries/asset-metrics HTTP endpoint and the /timeseries-stream/asset-metrics websocket endpoint. The HTTP endpoint supports the frequencies 1d, 1h, 1m, and 1s. The websocket endpoint supports the frequencies 1s and 200ms.
  • Please see our CM Prices Overview for more information on methodology and policies.
