In July 2020, the LSE added 169 digital assets to its SEDOL Masterfile service, a database that catalogs financial instruments traded globally. According to an article published by Coindesk, LSEG’s Head of Data Solutions, James Nevin said that more LSEG customers have begun trading in the digital asset space due to the "gradual institutionalization" of digital assets; because of this, the LSEG thought it was the "appropriate time" to add them to SEDOL. Nevin also said that despite this move, assigning such codes to digital assets in SEDOL does not add legitimacy to any particular digital asset.
