Laws governing crypto assets are in their infancy.
Storing digital assets securely is tremendously difficult.
A large number of new projects are difficult to separate into the next FANG and snake oil blockchains.

An index based investment strategy gives investors exposure to the most promising crypto assets.
Investors are betting on the asset class as a whole and can’t miss the big winners.
