Crypto Tradable Indices (CTIs) Weekly Performance

Ether (+16%) has pulled up the markets over the week following news of the long-awaited “Merge”, now set for September. As a quick reminder, Ethereum is the second largest blockchain and a smart-contract pioneer, it was created in 2014 with a Proof of Work consensus protocol and has been working for the past 3 years to change for a more sustainable Proof of Stake protocol, which will reduce Ethereum carbon footprint by over 99.5%. Trakx indices that include Ethereum are the best performers: Trakx Top Blockchains index (+8%), Bitcoin Ether index (+7%).
