How does Cryptocurrency Top 10 Index (CC10) work?
Indexed Finance contract is a fork of Balancer’s pool contract that allows portfolio management to be done automatically, including the portfolio’s rebalancing.
CC10 pool is determined by a set of market capitalization-weighted index pools that track the performance of 10 DeFi assets by NDX governance.
Similar to DEFI5, the key criteria for assets to be included in CC10 include:
- The token is at least one week old.
- No major vulnerabilities have been discovered in the token contract.
- The token's supply cannot be arbitrarily inflated or deflated maliciously.
- The token does not have transfer fees or other non-standard balance updates.
- The token meets the requirements of the ERC20 standard.
- The token has a fully diluted market cap of at least $50 million.
- At least $1 million worth of liquidity is locked in the Uniswap token-WETH pair
- The token is one of:
- Protocol token for an Ethereum-based project.
- Governance token for a DeFi project.
- Wrapper token for a blockchain's native currency.
The NDX token holders can suggest which new asset to be included in the CC10 index.
Token categories are sorted in descending order of the tokens' market capitalization using a weekly moving average (MA) of the tokens' prices. The weight of the underlying assets is the square root of their fully diluted valuation (FDV). This will reduce the degree of difference between larger and smaller FDV.
The value of indices is calculated as the total value of underlying assets (market capitalization) over the total pool supply. For example:
9th March 2021
CC10 pool rebalances its underlying assets to accurately represent the top ten chosen assets in the DeFi sector over time. The pool’s rebalancing is done by buying and selling the underlying assets until it reaches the desired weight.
