Martin Leinweber at MarketVector Indexes discusses staking and innovation in crypto indexes
We discuss how the integration of staking rewards combined with customization has set a new standard for digital asset indexes.
MarketVector and Figment have aligned to provide a more comprehensive measure of the value of Ethereum. The partnership marries MarketVector’s expertise in index administration with Figment’s best-in-class Ethereum rewards rate reporting.
The MarketVectorTM Figment Ethereum Staking Reward Reference Rate measures the annualized rate resulting from staking ETH on Ethereum. The Rewards Rate encompasses rewards from all activities on the Consensus Layer, including block proposals, attestations, sync committee, slashing reporting and the Execution Layer, including priority transaction fees and MEV. Penalties incurred from slashing are automatically deducted.
The MarketVectorTM Figment Ethereum Total Return Index takes a comprehensive and flexible approach by combining Ethereum’s Consensus and Execution Layer rewards with the daily market price. This approach provides a holistic perspective on Ethereum’s performance, considering all possible reward sources and slashing incidents while utilizing reliable exchange data to capture the market price of Ethereum.
A first-mover in staking-as-a-service, Figment provides staking and data solutions to some of the largest institutions in the digital asset space. MarketVector IndexesTM (“MarketVector”) together with Figment introduce two innovative indexes to provide a more comprehensive measure of the value of Ethereum. Learn how the partners have worked to combine Ethereum’s market performance with staking rewards into an innovative, customizable benchmark.
The first products co-created by MarketVector and Figment include the soon-to-be-launched the MarketVectorTM Figment Ethereum Staking Reward Reference Rate and the MarketVectorTM Figment Ethereum Total Return Index. While the partnership’s initial focus is on solutions for institutions and investors in Ethereum, this partnership paves the way to expand and extend these capabilities to other digital assets in the future.
The MarketVectorTM Figment Ethereum Staking Reward Reference Rate is a daily annualized rate of Ethereum rewards. These products are tailor-made for institutions, marrying MarketVector’s expertise in index administration with Figment’s best-in-class Ethereum rewards capture. Our initial focus is on Ethereum (ETH), paving the way for future opportunities to expand and extend these innovative products to other assets.
