What to consider when buying DeFiPulse Index

  • Novel monetary proposition: When users purchase DPI tokens, they are essentially gaining access to all of the tokens that make up the DeFi Pulse Index without having to own any of the assets individually.
  • Directly redeemable: DPI tokens can be liquidated in exchange for one or more of the tokens that make up the index. This means that by using a single token, investors can have a stake in a basket of DeFi currencies, allowing them to spread out their total monetary risk.
  • Ideal for beginners: The index looks to make it easier for crypto enthusiasts to make their way into the DeFi space, especially those individuals who may not possess enough expertise or technical know-how regarding crypto tech.
  • Quality projects part of the index: The DeFi Pulse index is made up of a total of ten popular DeFi crypto assets: AAVE, Synthetix, Uniswap, Yearn Finance, Compound, Maker, REN, Loopring, Kyber Network and Balancer.
  • Solid backing team: The governance aspect of the DeFi Pulse Index is looked after by Concourse, an independent crypto community made up of established digital currency developers, enthusiasts and researchers.
