First Korean digital asset fear and greed index launches
This indicator was developed by the company’s Data Value Team and regarded as the first-ever digital asset fear and greed index for the Korean market, according to Dunamu’s announcement. The index curates its data from the South Korean exchange, Upbit, and it’s refreshed every five minutes. Among other things, the Korean digital asset fear and greed index analyses the increase and decrease in the volatility and volume of digital assets.
Per the announcement, the indicator treats increases in digital assets’ volatility and volume as a moment of extreme greed, while the decrease means the market is in extreme fear. An official from Dunamu notes that many digital assets in investors in the country had to refer to global indicators to analyze the current state of the market, which prompted the development of the first domestic digital asset fear and greed index.
“The digital asset fear-greed index based on the data and know-how accumulated through the operation of the first digital asset index in Korea UBCI will become a compass for domestic digital asset investment,” the translated version reads.
