DeFi Pulse Index
overviewmethodologydata

The DeFi Pulse Index is a digital asset index designed to track the performance of some of the largest protocols in the Decentralized Finance (DeFi) space. DeFi is a blockchain-based implementation of traditional financial services that does not rely on central intermediaries and instead uses smart contracts on blockchains. Popular DeFi protocols allow users to lend or borrow digital assets, trade them on decentralized exchanges, or invest in a wide range of asset management strategies and derivatives. In order to be included in the DeFi Pulse Index, the DeFi protocol and its corresponding token have to pass a rigorous screening methodology. Only protocols with significant usage and commitment to ongoing maintenance and development are included. Constituents are weighted by circulating supply and rebalanced on a monthly basis.
