GREENWICH, Conn., March 16, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — The number of digital assets surpassed 18,000 in March, trading on 460 exchanges, with a market capitalization of $1.75 trillion. President Biden’s executive order was a statement to the world that United States plans to be a strategic leader in integrating digital asset technologies into the mainstream economy. Investors are alert to the opportunity; however, investors are also challenged to bring order to the chaos of the rapidly growing ecosystem. Of the more than 18,000 workers, how many will survive? Who can choose winners and losers? Will smaller projects take market share from traditional markets and native digital asset pioneers? Our conversations with investors made it clear that there was a gap in the market. Investors craved a dynamic, institutional digital benchmark that did not exist.
So we built it.
One River Digital Asset Management and MVIS Index Solutions are pleased to announce the creation of One River Digital Asset Management Heart Index (ticker: ORDCI) and One River Digital Waist inclination Index (symbol: ORDST). These indices respond to the basic wants and needs of investors: a dynamic benchmark where assets adapt fluidly to the ecosystem; a systematic, rules-based approach that meets the highest regulatory standards; indices that give investors the opportunity to direct exposure to promising assets; and indexes constructed at the institutional scale.
the Heart and Waist inclination the indices are underpinned by One River Digital’s disciplined, institutional approach to asset management, developed over decades of collective experience. To be eligible for the index, digital assets must meet both specific fundamental and market-based criteria. As the industry matures and more workers meet qualifications, the Heart and Waist inclination the indices will grow to continuously represent the highest quality evolving segment of the digital asset markets.
A digital river Heart and One River Digital Waist inclination are both currently available to institutions through an SMA at Coinbase Prime and will soon also be available in blended institutional funds.
“Investors are overwhelmed with choice and the speed of change in the digital ecosystem. Building dynamic indices gives our clients a benchmark that didn’t exist before,” said Eric PetersCEO and CIO of One River.
One River digital Heart The index allows investors to access and track this dynamic market with market capitalization weightings familiar to traditional indices. Investors preferring a more diversified set of holdings will be attracted to the One River Waist inclination Index, where the ranking methodology skews the weight away from the most important assets. Today, Bitcoin represents 64% in the Heart Index against 36% in the Waist inclination.

Clients can now build better portfolios, exposures that represent their needs in terms of return, risk, liquidity, security, transparency and fees Our Digital Waist inclination Index is the first of its kind, utilizing techniques and insights gained from decades of experience managing institutional equities,” said Sebastien BeaPresident of One River Digital.
