Methodology

What is the Yenso Index?

Yenso is a cryptocurrency market index that provides a whole measure of cryptocurrency market activity based upon the market caps of major crypto coins and tokens. The currencies in the index are selected based on the Yenso eligibility criteria, including market capitalization, trading volumes, prior performance, and founder/community qualities. Fluctuations in the Yenso Index offers a simple way to understand the dynamics and magnitude of the changes in the crypto market to facilitate investment decisions and diversification.

Yenso Selection Criteria

Market capitalization over $5B USD

Well-established coins and tokens with significant participation in market capitalization

$8M of Daily Trading Volume

Having a high daily volume of transactions for 30 days reflects an established currency that is accepted in most of the exchanges and widely used by the market.

Age Determination

By using an age determination, we intend to protect the index from volatile immature currencies with limited technology, status and following.

balanced across many exchanges

Criteria 4 ensures a coin is widely traded and not dominated by a small number of exchanges that may make it easier to manipulate its market.

Yenso Governance

How is it Calculated?

The Yenso Index is calculated using the market capitalization of each coin and token in the Index, divided by the Yenso Index Divisor. The Yenso Index started at 100 on June 4, 2017. The Yenso Index will be adjusted as required by changing market conditions. As the group of currencies in the Index changes, Yenso adjusts its proprietary Index Divisor, based upon the market cap of the currencies on the date in which they were added to the Yenso Index. The Yenso Index Divisor is a proprietary factor devised by Yenso.
