Benzinga - While awaiting a Spot Bitcoin ETF approval, Grayscale announced the FTSE Grayscale Crypto Sector Index Series, a novel way to look at the digital asset market and measure the performance of the rapidly growing crypto space.

What Happened: Digital currency asset manager, Grayscale Investments launched five crypto sector indices along with London-based index provider FTSE Russell, a subsidiary of the London Stock Exchange, the company announced on Tuesday.

The joint product launch will be called the “Crypto Sector Index Series” including several indices that track the prices of various digital assets according to their use cases. The indices will cover more than 150 protocols and will be reassessed quarterly.

The cryptocurrencies list includes currencies like Bitcoin and Litecoin as a store of value and medium of exchange; smart contract projects such as Ethereum, Solana, and Polygon; tokens representing financial services such as Uniswap, Compound, and Curve; tokens representing art, gaming, and media assets such as NFT projects, and projects aimed at real-world applications such as Chainlink and Filecoin.

Find out more on Grayscale Investments and their latest developments from the Vice President of Client Team at Grayscale Investments, Brooke Stoddard. He will be a Panelist at Benzinga’s Future of Digital Assets conference in New York on Nov.14. Meet and engage with other transformative Digital Asset and Crypto business leaders and investors.

Why It Matters: “Investors have increasingly expressed interest in diversifying beyond crypto’s largest assets, Bitcoin and Ethereum, and many look to Grayscale to better understand this robust, evolving asset class,” Grayscale Investments CEO Michael Sonnenshein said.

The company plans to build tools and structures to monitor themes, risks, and opportunities of the asset class, advancing more informed investment decisions.

Inkoo Kang, Grayscale’s ETF director, said that the indices will use a square root of each cryptocurrency market capitalization so that the most capitalized ones, like Bitcoin, will not have an outsized effect on the whole group and investors have a more diverse exposure, The Block reported.

Grayscale's parent company, DCG, and its other subsidiaries faced a lawsuit last week by New York Attorney General Letitia James.

Attend Benzinga's exclusive event: Future of Digital Assets and find out “The Rise of Crypto ETFs and Regulatory Considerations” the discussion in which the Grayscale Investments executive will be a part of. The gathering is seen as pivotal for the digital assets’ community. The event will spotlight the latest trends, innovations, and challenges in the digital asset realm. Tickets are flying: Get yours!
