About CoinDesk 20 Index

The CoinDesk 20 Index (CD20) measures the performance of top digital assets. Characteristics include:

  • Designed for implementation at scale with liquidity and exchange-listing requirements
  • Market capitalization weighted with a 30% cap on the largest constituent (currently bitcoin) and a 20% cap on all other members (currently capping ether)
  • Excludes stablecoins
  • Calculated and published once every five seconds
  • Built using the CoinDesk Indices’ Digital Asset Classification Standard (DACS) and drawn from the CoinDesk Market Index (CMI) universe
  • Complete details available in the CoinDesk 20 Index Methodology

As the new digital asset class emerges, market participants and observers will need a new reference index to measure performance, invest, and trade. The CoinDesk 20 Index has been designed with liquidity, diversification benefits, and implementation in mind. This index is the reference for crypto and the new building block for investment products.
