CoinDesk Indices and AMINA Group Partner to Launch Bitcoin Trend Indicator Index

AMINA CoinDesk Index

NEW YORK and ZUG, 1 July 2024 – CoinDesk Indices, a leading provider of digital asset indices since 2014, in partnership with AMINA Bank AG, a leading Swiss crypto bank fully licensed in Switzerland, today launched the AMINA CoinDesk BTC Momentum Index (Ticker: BTIAMINA). BTIAMINA aims to provide a dynamic exposure to bitcoin with the objective of shifting from bitcoin to USD when price trends are unfavourable, thereby navigating the crypto seasons.

“Together with CoinDesk Indices, we are breaking down barriers with the intention to make digital asset products more accessible and manageable for professional investors,” said Amy Yu, CEO APAC of AMINA Group. “AMINA Group has been an early pioneer in regulated crypto investments and continues to distribute new and interesting digital asset related products under our licenses in Switzerland and Hong Kong in compliance with the laws and regulations of the relevant jurisdictions.”

BTIAMINA measures the performance of a strategy that dynamically allocates between bitcoin and cash, based on the CoinDesk Bitcoin Trend Indicator (BTI), a quantitative signal which conveys the presence, direction, and strength of the trend in the price of bitcoin using a purpose-built algorithm. The BTI is calculated daily and is derived from historical daily levels of the CoinDesk Bitcoin Price Index (XBX), using a non-discretionary methodology.

Key features of the AMINA CoinDesk BTC Momentum Index include:

  • Investment Universe: The index allocates between bitcoin and cash, providing flexibility in response to market conditions.
  • Rebalancing Frequency: Weekly rebalancing ensures timely adjustments based on market trends.
  • Momentum-Based Signals: BTI uses four moving average pairs to generate trend signals. The final signal is an average of these pairs, which the index then uses in a dynamic allocation strategy ranging from 0% to 100% bitcoin exposure.
  • Risk Management: Designed to reduce sharp drawdowns and mental biases associated with bitcoin investing, aiming for higher risk-adjusted returns.
  • Transparency: Fully transparent and systematic methodology, ensuring clarity and trust for investors.

“The AMINA CoinDesk BTC Momentum Index represents a significant step forward in providing sophisticated, data-driven tools for bitcoin investors,” said Alan Campbell, President of CoinDesk Indices. “Our collaboration with AMINA Bank allows us to bring a unique index to market that combines our expertise in digital asset indices with AMINA’s innovative approach to crypto banking and investment solutions.”

“Partnering with industry leader CoinDesk Indices to launch the BTIAMINA is a landmark development for the broader crypto investment community,” said Gregory Mall, Head of Investment Products & Solutions at AMINA Bank. “This index is a testament to our commitment to innovation and excellence in the digital asset space. We are providing professional investors with a sophisticated tool to navigate the complexities of the bitcoin market with greater confidence and precision. The BTIAMINA Index not only aims to enhance risk-adjusted returns but also reduces the psychological hurdles associated with direct bitcoin investments.”
