In research and analysis, investors often compare privacy coins to Monero, the privacy + crypto industry standard (for now). But there are a LOT of privacy coins beyond Monero, with both very interesting roadmaps and active communities.
In thinking through the best way to compare privacy coins against one another, it occurred to me that, rather than using Monero as the standard (the choice because of largest market cap), we could equal-weight all interesting privacy coins in an index and compare select privacy coins against that index performance.
Equal-Weight Privacy Coin Index
Notes: cryptocurrencies in alpha order by ticker.
PLEASE let me know if there are coins (which are also listed on coinmarketcap; I had to remove projects such as GRIN) that need to be added to this index. Look forward to updates at least weekly as I track the Equal-Weight Privacy Coin Index against Bitcoin and other select cryptocurrencies.
Thanks for reading!
