Exchange rates are calculated by averaging multiple market prices across various exchanges, weighted by volume traded on them in the last 24 hours (VWAP 24h). To calculate the fair market value, we use both passive (Orderbook) and active (Executed transactions) market data. Our algorithm uses direct and indirect symbols to calculate the exchange rate, by crossing indirect symbols using central banks’ foreign exchange reference rates. (For example, to calculate the exchange rates of BTC/USD, we also incorporate BTC/CNY, BTC/JPY, BTC/GBP, BTC/EUR.)
