How will IC15 work?

The IC15 index will be managed and maintained by a governance committee (IGC), which will include domain experts, industry practitioners and academicians. The IGC will be in charge of monitoring and maintaining the index, while also helming the initiative to reshuffle the top 15 cryptos at regular intervals.

For cryptocurrencies to be listed on the index, they will be required to be traded on at least 90 percent of trading days during the review period, while at the same time they should also be in the top 50 in terms of circulating market capitalisation during the preceding month. Another key point to note is that the cryptos should also be amongst the top 100 most liquid in terms of trading value.

Cryptowire claims that the index will be reviewed and rebalanced every quarter, and the base value has been set at 10,000 with the base date as April 1, 2018. The top four positions will be taken up by Bitcoin, Ethereum, Binance Coin and Solana.
