The self-governing crypto index fund

Echelon is the first autonomous cryptocurrency index fund.
Securely invest in a basket of digital assets with fees below 2%.

The Rise of Crypto

On the 31st of October 2008, the peer-to-peer electronic cash system, Bitcoin, was quietly released to the world. Since then, it has steadily migrated into mainstream along with hundreds of other so-called digital assets. However, today only the most tech-savvy investors can access the whole market.

Echelon uses artificial intelligence to automatically index the cryptocurrency market and invest in a resilient portfolio of the top digital assets. Investors can enter Echelon through traditional means and easily track their investment in the fund. Echelon reduces the complexity and security risks inherent in cryptocurrency investing, while charging the lowest fees in the industry.



The Echelon Digital Asset Index

Indexing is a proven strategy to lower investing risk. This is as true for the stock market as it is for cryptocurrencies. Echelon helps every smart investor to conveniently gain exposure to the market with less risk.

Echelon builds its portfolio using a benchmark index of the cryptocurrency market. The resulting fund contains assets listed according to strict eligibility criteria and weighted by their respective market capitalizations. Echelon securely manages the portfolio and issues shares of the fund, enabling investors to access it through traditional banking infrastructure. Read more about the fund.
