STOXX Digital Asset Indices

Bringing transparency and a blue-chip focus to the crypto market

The STOXX® Digital Asset Blue Chip index aims to track high-quality assets that represent the crypto universe. The index was launched in partnership with Bitcoin Suisse, a leading Swiss crypto-financial services provider and brings together STOXX’s transparent and rules-based index methodology with Bitcoin Suisse’s expertise in the crypto space.

A blue-chip focus means the index does not just select the largest crypto assets by market capitalization, but instead tracks the performance of those assets which are deemed to be “blue-chip” in terms of quality, activity, robustness and financial strength.

The use of the Bitcoin Suisse Taxonomy ensures the incorporation of assets from different sectors. Capping enables significant representation of assets other than the dominant Bitcoin and Ethereum.

A second index, the STOXX® Digital Asset Blue Chip X, was launched alongside the STOXX Digital Asset Blue Chip index. The STOXX Digital Asset Blue Chip X excludes assets not eligible on Xetra. Both indices are suited to serve as underlyings for exchange traded products (ETPs), derivatives, or structured products.
