Hashnote Partners with CoinDesk Indices to Launch the Hashnote CoinDesk 20 Fund, Providing Access to the Leading Digital Asset Class Benchmark

 CoinDesk 20 measures the top digital assets and traded over $2 billion in perpetual futures volume since January 2024—and is now available in a fund structure

NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Hashnote, the on-chain first digital asset manager built with the support of Cumberland and DRW, announces a strategic partnership with CoinDesk Indices, the leading provider of digital asset indices since 2014. This collaboration introduces the Hashnote CoinDesk 20 Fund, designed to track the CoinDesk 20 Index (CD20), a highly traded, global digital asset benchmark.

As the landscape of digital assets continues to evolve and mature, the demand among investors for more diverse portfolio options beyond bitcoin ETFs has significantly increased. The CoinDesk 20 Index meticulously tracks a selection of the world’s largest and most liquid digital assets. Utilizing a market-capitalization weighted methodology with a 30% cap on its largest constituent, Bitcoin, and a 20% cap on other members (currently Ether), the index aims to enhance diversification. Additionally, the index provides exposure to resilient memecoins like Dogecoin and SHIBA INU, capturing over 90% of total digital asset market capitalization.*

“Launching the Hashnote CoinDesk 20 Fund marks a pivotal step in providing investors with a regulated avenue to the digital assets market. The recent green light for Bitcoin ETFs has opened the door for investors previously on the fence, signaling a new era of digital asset investment,” said Leo Mizuhara, Founder and CEO, Hashnote. “Through our partnership with CoinDesk Indices, we’re enabling access to a diversified portfolio within this sector, backed by the assurance of regulation.”

Earlier this year, CoinDesk Indices unveiled the CoinDesk 20. Simultaneously, Bullish, the fastest-growing regulated digital asset exchange, launched a new perpetual futures contract based on the CoinDesk 20 Index. Since launch, the CoinDesk 20 Index perpetual futures have seen a remarkable trading volume of $2.4 billion. Over the last month, the CoinDesk 20 Index has outperformed bitcoin by 4.25%. Hashnote will now provide regulated and compliant access to the CoinDesk 20, catering to investors seeking digital asset diversification beyond bitcoin.

“Increasingly, the investment community wants to unlock the growth of digital assets with one move,” remarked Alan Campbell, President of CoinDesk Indices. “Hashnote utilizes the most liquid industry benchmark, the CoinDesk 20, to offer a fund that simplifies and diversifies investing.”
