2100NEWS Digital Assets Indexes – crypto performance, benchmark
In the last couple of months, 2100NEWS has developed the new contents. 2100NEWS launched the series of 2100NEWS DA (Digital Assets) Indexes, the first series of indexes designed to capture and measure the performance of a group of cryptocurrencies and digital tokens. 2100NEWS DA Indexes are fully independent indexes and benchmarks tracking both cryptocurrencies and digital tokens. Their purpose is to increase the transparency of the crypto markets.
In the flood of cryptocurrencies and digital tokens, it is hard to figure out where the crypto markets are really going. There are a lot of articles and analyses of Bitcoin movement but it is difficult to find an analysis of the entire crypto market. That is why we decided to develop 2100NEWS DA Indexes. They will serve for general insight into crypto markets and their current and past movements. Crypto indexes will become a benchmark against which investors can compare their investment performance.
Why 2100NEWS crypto indexes
2100NEWS, although it is a young firm, emerged by gathered financial experts who gave their rich knowledge into the development of 2100NEWS DA Indexes. They found that there was a need for an overview and measurement of crypto market developments. The performance of a group of cryptocurrencies and digital tokens is often different from the performance of Bitcoin.
Each 2100NEWS DA Index represents and measures the performance of the different group of cryptocurrencies and digital tokens. One of them is 2100news Digital Assets 100 Large Cap Index (NWSL100): detailed information about how it is designed can be found here NWL100 – Overview.
Who can use them
Market participants can use indexes in a variety of ways: to assess a given market’s performance, to gauge how well an active strategy is working, to serve as the foundation for investment products, such as ETFs or mutual funds, to evaluate a market’s risk profile or its diversification benefits, to measure passive risk premia.
The guidebook lists all the features that each individual constituent has to have in order to be able to be part of the index.
2100NEWS DA Indexes are weekly rebalanced. Rebalancing is the process of realigning the weightings of constituents of an index. Why is it important? The tokens and coins are very volatile and unstable. Previous experience has shown that the tokens’ market capitalization and their turnover are changing rapidly. Such token quickly undermines the performance of the index.
