Coinbase, one of the largest cryptocurrency companies, announced on Tuesday, June 12, that Coinbase Index Fund is now open for investment. The San Francisco-based company first unveiled  this fund on March 6.

Coinbase Index Fund gives investors exposure to all assets listed on our exchange, weighted by market capitalization…At this stage, Coinbase Index Fund is only open to US-resident accredited investors.

The company’s website states that “Our vision is to make index investing in digital assets available to everyone.” Further, the company emphasized that they are “beginning the work required to offer index funds to all US investors,” not just accredited ones, adding that “In the future, we hope to be able to offer index investing to customers in the US and internationally.”
About the Fund
Coinbase Index Fund “is a private fund that seeks to track Coinbase Index (Fixed Supply),” which is a measure of the overall performance of the cryptocurrencies listed on Coinbase’s exchange, GDAX, the company describes.
Coinbase Index composition, which will be rebalanced to add ETC.
The minimum investment amount for the fund is $250,000 and the maximum is $20 million. The fund’s annual management fee is 2%.
“The assets are weighted by market capitalization. The index level takes into account the ongoing increases in supply of each asset, not just changes in price,” the company noted, adding that the index is “reconstituted each time that a new asset is listed on GDAX,” such as the recent addition of ETC.
The current composition is 61.47% BTC, 27.17% ETH, 8.22% BCH, and 3.14% LTC. The fund will soon be rebalanced to include ETC.
Moreover, Coinbase explained that “Unlike actively managed investment funds,” the fund manager of its index fund “does not actively trade assets, or target a specific allocation for any asset.”
