A key purpose of the DCI is the diversification of a very volatile cryptocurrency market. This allows for an investment in the entire cryptocurrency space without the risk of betting on a single coin and the hassle of holding coins from different exchanges or in different wallets. There are many coins available and some are very valuable investment vehicles. However, others are highly volatile and, frankly, others are worthless. The goal of DCI is to manage an index fund of coins that is the weighted average of the top 30 coins.
