Non Fungible Tokens (NFTs) are a revolutionary cultural, artistic, and financial phenomenon with now more than a $40B in market cap. However, to date, it has been very difficult for everyday investors to access NFTs due to the high degree of curation expertise needed and the very high entry costs. The JPG NFT Index token addresses these barriers by providing a fully-backed, diversified collection of blue-chip and premier NFT collections through a single index token. In particular, JPG provides exposure to CryptoPunks, Bored Ape Yacht Club, Meebits, and Chromie Squiggle NFT collections, to name a few. Key advantages of the JPG NFT Index over holding individual NFTs include broader diversification, lower capital requirements, faster fulfillment, higher liquidity, lower fees, and expert curation provided by the underlying protocols. The JPG index token is fully collateralized by the underlying token holdings and can be redeemed for them without permission.
“JPG is a game-changer,” said Joseph Knecht, the Index Coop Methodologist who designed JPG. “It’s the first NFT index token that provides broad exposure to the NFT market. We’re excited about the opportunity to bring NFTs to a new class of collectors.”
JPG is made possible by cutting-edge advances in NFT technology such as NFT liquidity vaults, fractionalization protocols, curation DAOs (decentralized autonomous organizations), bonding protocols, and liquid wrappers. The initial inclusion criteria for JPG include requiring that the underlying token be backed by NFTs, have a >$2M market cap, high underlying liquidity, represent art of collectibles, and represent a blue-chip or premier collection. Future inclusion decisions will be governed by stewards of the NFT ecosystem who hold the Collectooors NFT as well as JPG token holders.
