Investment Summary

INVESTMENT OBJECTIVE


The objective of the Crescent Crypto Market Index Fund is to track the performance of a market capitalization weighted basket of the largest and most liquid digital assets that are tradeable and secure.



INVESTOR BENEFITS


  • Representative and Diversified: investors gain exposure to over 85% of the crypto market with a single investment. The Fund employs a trailing 90-day average market cap selection and weighting methodology that reduces turnover and makes index weightings less subject to short term price


  • Data Integrity and Liquidity: pricing data sources are selected by evaluating the largest exchanges with strong track records of stable, secure performance while maintaining local regulatory compliance. Coins are eligible if they meet substantial liquidity thresholds, which are measured only on a limited list of eligible and trust exchanges. 


  • Secure and Investable: the eligible universe of cryptocurrencies is narrowed to only include digital assets with wallet solutions capable of generating private keys and signing transactions offline, allowing cold-storage custody. The Fund will not hold assets that cannot be stored and transferred safely. 




SELECTION CRITERIA


The Fund determines a digital asset's eligibility considering the following criteria:



Size

trailing 90-day average market cap must be greater than $500 million

Liquidity

30-day average trading volume must exceed $3 million for at least one day over the past month, and must trade on 2 or more trusted exchanges

Custody

must be eligible for cold storage through a hardware wallet or trusted 3rd party

Security

no known security issues - including potential bugs, exposure to 51% attacks, announced de-listing from exchanges, etc.

Float

must have free-floating price and not be pegged to other digital assets, traditional assets or fiat currencies
