S&P launches Bitcoin, Ethereum, Crypto Mega Cap indices

For instance, at the time of writing the index showed that Bitcoin’s return over a one-year period was 558% as opposed to Ethereum’s one-year return, which was 1,477%. Why It Matters: Since the indexes measure price appreciation and not the current price of the underlying asset, comparing the two indices helps traders make an easy assessment of the better-performing asset over time. “With digital assets such as cryptocurrencies becoming a rapidly emerging asset class, the time is right for independent, reliable, and user-friendly benchmarks. We’re excited to work with Lukka, who has been at the forefront of digital asset data services, to promote more transparency in this nascent sector,” said Peter Roffman, global head of innovation and strategy at S&P Dow Jones Indices.

New York-based cryptocurrency data firm Lukka provided the “world’s first fair market value-focused” pricing methodology to price the S&P indexes. S&P also included a third crypto index, the S&P Crypto Mega Cap Index which tracks the performance of both Bitcoin and Ethereum together.

This method of valuation is designed to align the crypto ecosystem to GAAP and IFRS guidelines, according to the indexes’ methodology document. The S&P Bitcoin Index tracks the performance of the leading digital asset Bitcoin, while the S&P Ethereum Index tracks the performance of the second-largest cryptocurrency by market cap, Ethereum.
