Token inclusion criteria

Any token included in our index must meet all the criteria below:
  • The project’s token should have been listed on CoinGecko with pricing data at least 6 months prior to the date of inclusion in the index.
  • The project should have a token that is native to Avalanche. This excludes wrapped variants, where the underlying tokens are locked on an alt-L1.
  • The project should be a going concern, with a dedicated team actively building, supporting and maintaining the project.
  • No rebasing or deflationary tokens.
  • The project must be widely considered to be building a useful protocol or product. Projects that have ponzi characteristics at the core of their offering will not be considered.
  • Synthetic tokens which derive their value from external price feeds are not permissible.
  • The project’s token must not have the ability to pause token transfers.
  • The project’s protocol or product must have significant usage.

Weighting requirements

  • The maximum weight any one token can have is 50%. All excess weight is proportionally redistributed to all uncapped tokens.

Liquidity Requirements

  • The token must be listed on a supported exchange.
  • The token should have at least $2mm of onchain liquidity on a single pair.
  • The token must have shown consistent DeFi liquidity on Avalanche.

Security Requirements

  • The project must have been audited by smart contract security professionals with the audit report(s) publicly available. Alternatively, the protocol must have been operating long enough to create a consensus about its safety in the decentralised finance community.
