The last rebalance was conducted on 2023-06-01, and the next rebalance is scheduled for 2023-12-01.


The objective of MVI is to reflect the trend of Metaverse and Gaming activities in virtual economies powered by blockchain technology and NFTs, replacing the previous objective of capturing entertainment, social activities, and businesses in virtual economies powered by blockchain technology and NFTs.

Asset Inclusion Criteria

Eligible tokens must meet the following criteria:

  • Must be ERC-20 tokens on the Ethereum blockchain
  • Must be categorized in one or more of the following categories on CoinGecko: NFTs 1 1, Gaming, and Metaverse, or categorized as Metaverse or NFTs 1 1 by Messari
  • The primary asset’s market capitalization must be at least 75,000 ETH as of the data collection date
  • The token must have a median daily decentralized exchange trading volume of at least $100,000 in the 30-day period preceding the data collection date
  • Tokens must have at least three months of on-chain liquidity and price history, as well as three months of operation history
  • An independent security audit must have been performed on the protocol, and the results must have been reviewed by the product methodologists
  • If no audit has been performed, the methodologists will apply subjective judgment based on an assessment of the criteria above and communications with the team.

Asset Weighting Methodology

The weight of constituents in MVI will be determined by a combination of square root market capitalization and decentralized exchange volume.

Weight = 0.75 * SRMW + 0.25 * DVM

SRMW = Square Root of Market Capitalization / Sum of the Square Root of Market Capitalization across all eligible assets

DVM = DEX Volume / Sum of the DEX Volume across all eligible assets
