The DeFi Pulse Index is a digital asset index designed to track tokens’ performance within the Decentralized Finance industry. The index is weighted based on the value of each token’s circulating supply.

As part of the inclusion assessment, DeFi Pulse considers a wide range of characteristics of the token, the project and the protocol. These criteria can be placed in four groups:
The Index value is the spot value of the index.
The index is maintained monthly in two phases:
The determination phase takes place during the third week of the month. It is the phase when the changes needed for the next reconstitution are determined.
Following publication of the determination phase outcome, the index composition will change to the new weights on the first working day of the following month. I.e components will be added or removed, and weights adjusted.
Any funds based on the DeFi Pulse Index will be expected to execute any buy and sell transactions on or shortly after the index reconstitution date.
