[ANN] CRYPTO25: The First Professional Altcoin Index
« on: November 16, 2014, 11:17:33 pm »

Hello!

I am proud to announce Crypto25, the first professional altcoin Index!

Preview: http://jnxt.org/crypto25/
(Kudos to jones for creating this awesome site!)



FAQ:

What is Crypto25?

Crypto25 is an index, that tracks performance of the 25 altcoins with the highest market cap compared to bitcoin. So the index will go up, if the 25 altcoins will perform better than Bitcoins and will go down, if they perform worse.

Why do we need such an index?

Indices are very popular in the world of finance and it is sad to see, that there is no such project in the altcoin world. There are several advantages that come with indices: You can check one chart to see how most of the altcoin market is doing. Also having an index makes it very easy to create products that track the performance, for example an ETF, Futures or options. Another cool thing is, that you can check of your portfolio outperformed the index in the mid to longterm!

Who decides what the index weights are?

This index follows very strict rules, so that everyone can double check how the weights were calculated. Also I will post the caclulations for the index every time they change. The rules for the coinselection and the index weights can be found here: https://nxtforum.org/index.php?topic=6613.0. There I will also post updated on the index weights weekly.

How can I invest to get the same performance as the index?

You will have to invest into the same coins as the index weights and update your portfolio once a week, when the index weights change. In a few weeks, we will launch an ETF, that will do those investments for you.

Feel free to ask anything you like!

You will be able to buy the index composition in the future in the form of an ETF. Right now we are looking if everything works flawless for atleast a few weeks!

11% up vs Bitcoin this week alone.

I assume this is mostly due to XRP? Is it possible to display relative contributions to price increase/decrease on the website?

Not sure what is driving XRP price increase - maybe the recent large and increasing JPY inflows http://www.ripplecharts.com/ or insider information.

Hey,

I have to figure out a way to do this.

According to my calculations XRP contributed "only" 4% to this rise.

Looks great, thanks for the work you've put into this.

One suggestion: the “#”, “Market Cap (BTC)” and “Available Supply” columns would be more legible and look much better if the figures were right adjusted.

Thank you for the suggestions.

How to invest?

Right now you have to copy the index composition on the day that I publish it (mostly on sundays). In the future there will be an electronic traded fund (ETF) trading on the NXT AE and possbily other decentralised market places.

Index was successfully updated.

Also starting from next Week, I will also post the real portfolio gains corresponding to the underlying assets, because I started the ETF.

Maybe I'm the only one but how should I read this graph?
All crypto of your portfolio are going up?
What is on Y axis?

This graph is representing the crypto25 index. This index started at 10000 points and is competing against BTC. If BTC moves up 10% and cryptos move up 10% the index will not move, so this graph shows the relative outperformance. Currently the graph is showing (12800/12000-1)=0.28=28% outperformance since inception.

Y axis = index points
X axis = timeline

I am interested in this product.
I wonder if you have considered the inclusion of some sort of relative strength factor to exclude falling knives.

Love the idea of this index, but how are you constructing it logistically? Are you putting these assets into an escrow or trust account and trading them periodically to rebalance the weights? Are you going to be paying out dividends to keep the fund size at some fixed level, or will this be a floating size fund where profits come from capital gains trading in/out?
