Our cryptocurrency indices outperform holding Bitcoin alone.

Four key benefits of our indices:

  1. Bet on crypto as an asset class. By holding the top coins by market cap at any given time, you gain wider exposure to the entire crypto asset class, as opposed to relying on the success of any individual coins.

  2. Keep pace with technological innovation. The growth in blockchain innovation and the low friction to switch to the best-forming protocols results in blazing-fast shifts in market sentiment. An index that rebalances frequently will gain exposure to the best-performing technology over time, rather than being left holding a group of crypto dinosaurs.

  3. Handle cryptocurrency proliferation. The number of cryptocurrencies in circulation has grown exponentially since Bitcoin's inception in 2009, and currently stands at over 6,000. The sheer number of assets in crypto makes it increasingly difficult to predict the likely winners and losers.

  4. Capture outlier performances. You have probably never heard of most of the top-performing coins. Casting a systematically wide net ensures exposure to these emphatic winners.
