The DPI token is a market cap-weighted index spanning the 10-most popular Ethereum-based DeFi tokens listed on decentralized finance data aggregator, DeFiPulse. 

The DPI index token rebalances on the first day of every month, adjusting allocations according to supply and price data provided by CoinGecko. Tokens will not be allocated a weighting higher than 25% during rebalancing.

As of this writing, UNI has the largest allocation in the DPI Index with roughly 26.5%, followed by AAVE with 18.4%, MKR with 13.5%, and COMP with 9.3%.

SUSHI, YFI, and SNX each have allocations of between 7% and 8.6%, while LRC, REN, KNC, and BAL are weighted between 1.2% and 2.4%. CREAM, FARM, and MTA represent less than 1% of the index each.

The index excludes wrapped tokens, synthetic assets, tokenized derived, tokens that are tied to physical assets, and tokens that represent ownership claims to other tokens.

Despite suffering a heavy drawdown amid the recent crypto market crash, DPI is still up more than 300% from its November 2020 low of $57.20.
