Investing.com - Cryptocurrency prices were mixed on Tuesday as markets struggled to recover from the prior session’s steep decline. Meanwhile, Nasdaq began live listing two digital currency price indices from Brave New Coin.

The companies Bitcoin Liquid Index and Ethereum Liquid Index was announced earlier in the month, and will allow Nasdaq clients to view data on the coins.

Brave New Coin is also producing an index to track XRP, the company said on its website.

“The [index] program was born out of a need for clear and transparent price discovery of liquid cryptographic assets and is a bigger need today then it was back in 2015 when we started this program”, said Fran Strajnar, CEO of BNC.

Bitcoin fell 0.25% to $3,800.00 as of 8:13 AM ET (13:13 GMT) on the Investing.com Index.

Cryptocurrencies overall were up slightly at $129 billion at the time of writing but far from its jump to $143 billion on Sunday.

Ethereum slumped 2.5% to $135.09 and XRP rose 4.7% to $0.31741 while Litecoin was at $44.938, up 0.12%.

In other news, Warren Buffett called Bitcoin “a delusion” during an interview on CNBC on Monday.

The Berkshire Hathaway (NYSE:BRKa) CEO added that the digital coins have no unique value.

“You can stare at it all day, and no little Bitcoins come out or anything like that. It’s a delusion, basically,” he said. Buffett has previously said the coin was a gamble and it's not clear which digital coin is the top coin.
