T3 Crypto-X Power (Crypto-XP) Index serves to represent a value of investment in a portfolio of top 10 cryptocurrencies, rebalanced monthly by their respective market capitalization ranks. The weighting of investments is determined by Zipf’s distribution. Zipf’s law is a naturally occurring pattern encountered in a wide variety of areas, from linguistics and population dynamics to biology and finance. This distribution is a middle ground between investing according to market capitalization, which heavily prioritizes Bitcoin and a few other major cryptocurrencies, and equal distribution which puts too high of a risk on less established assets. The weight distribution for the corresponding currencies’ ranks is constant and does not require precise knowledge of market capitalization.
