sCoop Weekly - 2022.01.07

Welcome to the sCoop Weekly where you’ll get a rundown of the week that was and where the Owls are flying next. Be sure to follow daily and weekly Index Coop contributor news on Twitter: @HowWeDAO

We All $GMI


On Thursday, we and Bankless DAO launched the Bankless DeFi Innovation Index $GMI. $GMI utilizes an indexing strategy to offer broad, diversified exposure in a single token. GMI offers anyone, anywhere passive exposure to cutting-edge DeFi applications. The index will be represented by a fully collateralized ERC20 token and will be available for purchase on Uniswap v3, TokenSets, & More.

Ready, Set, BitGo

We are delighted to announce that BitGo, the leading custodian institutional digital asset management, has expanded its partnership with the Index Cooperative by adding support for the Coop’s full suite of thematic products: the Metaverse Index (MVI), the Bankless BED Index (BED), and the Data Economy Index (DATA). These crypto index funds will provide BitGo’s institutional clients with simple, one-token access to emerging crypto themes. This expansion follows BitGo’s support of the Index Cooperative’s flagship index product, the DeFi Pulse Index (DPI), in Summer 2021.

What’s new and in which direction are we heading over the upcoming week

Next Wednesday’s Leadership Forum is a must-attend. The Index Council will be breaking down how the overall vision, strategy, objectives look in terms of Nest/Pod structure for our Index 2.0 transformation. So be sure to block off next Wednesday 1800 UTC/1300 Eastern.

There’s no shortage of events in crypto and Index Coop plans to have some meetups in 2022, COVID-willing. Keep your eye out for ones near you and give @MrMadila a shout to add to our calendar.
