In this episode of the Fundamentals podcast, we’re joined by Martin Leinweber, Digital Asset Strategist at MarketVector, for an insightful discussion on digital asset indexing.

MarketVector and Token Terminal have been working together to provide institutions, advisors, and investors with access to investable products that track the breadth of data available in web3 and on blockchains.

Listen to the episode

Earlier this month, we announced the launch of the MarketVector Token Terminal Fundamental Index Suite, a novel approach to creating multi-token baskets. In this episode, we dive into all of the details around the index suite. Explore the indexes in more detail below:

Martin breaks down the process of developing index products, what the current state of the market is, and where the need for more multi-token baskets stems from.

We speak about the selection and weighting approach for the Fundamentals index suite, covering their structure, composition, backtesting results, the initial market response, and more. Martin also walks us through the impact of real-time onchain on indexing, and sheds some light on the regional differences in the perception of crypto today.

Tune in for an insightful discussion about the fundamentals of digital asset indexing.
