Objective of the DeFi Pulse Index (DPI):
The DeFi Pulse Index is a digital asset index designed to track tokens’ performance within the Decentralized Finance industry. The index is weighted based on the value of each token’s circulating supply. Please see Pulse.inc for more details on methodology.
New v0.3 Methodology:
March 2021 sees the first DPI rebalance under methodology v0.3, which includes an allocation cap of 25% for any single project in accordance with DeFi Pulse’s vision for DPI to provide a diversified exposure to the DeFi market.
DPI Rebalance Weights:
The above weights were set based on circulating supply as of late March 2021. DPI has increased its weighted allocations of MKR, COMP, SNX, AAVE, BAL, MTA, and SUSHI. DPI has decreased weighted allocations in YFI, KNC, REN, LRC, and UNI. Additionally, the DeFi Pulse index (DPI) added Harvest Finance (FARM) and C.R.E.A.M. Finance (CREAM) in this month’s rebalance.
