Beyond Bitcoin is a leading provider of digital asset indices and separately managed account (SMA) model portfolios. Incredible developments are occurring in areas such as Web3, smart contract platforms, Metaverse, NFTs, Layer -1 protocols and Layer-2 scaling solutions. Beyond Bitcoin, LLC is focused on these exciting crypto themes and their native tokens with a series of indices to track the overall market as well as these sub-sectors. Current Beyond Bitcoin equal-weighted digital asset indices include: Web3 Sector Leaders Index, Metaverse Index, Smart Contract Index, Smart Contract ex-Ethereum Index, Smart Contract 50/50 Index, Core 20 Equal Weight Index, Core 20 - 50/50 Index and Core Crypto IRA Index.
Beyond Bitcoin, LLC is a minority owned firm.
Many of the leading broad crypto index funds are market-capitalization weighted and therefore may have over 90% of their assets in just two cryptocurrencies, Bitcoin and Ether. This is sub-optimal for two reasons, they are not diversified from a general investment standpoint and they don’t offer exposure to many of the most exciting cryptocurrencies that may represent the future of the asset class. The indices offered by Beyond Bitcoin track the space in a more diversified and inclusive manner than many other crypto indices currently on the market.
