Since the DAC economy is an entirely new concept, it provides an immense opportunity for investment. If the technology proves resilient to government regulations, software bugs, and apathy of the general public, there will be huge gains for those who own a piece of it. Shares of DACs, in the form of crypto coins, are available to anyone and everyone at a market price from anywhere in the world.
The number of DACs are growing at breakneck speed, so keeping track of the latest and greatest and weeding out the pump and dump schemes is becoming harder and harder. The purpose of the index is to allow us to understand and track the DAC ecosystem as a whole.
The historic trends in the stock market have shown us that simply following and investing an index beats trying to day trade almost all of the time. Why try and jump in and out of crypto coins, when you can just buy and track the crypto economy as a whole as it grows?
