Market Cap / Market Capitalization-based Indices

The Cryptoz.ai Market Cap indices are designed to track the performance of the cryptocurrency market place. As a market cap based index, the weightage of the index constituents reflects market cap of that particular cryptocurrency. Four Cryptoz.ai Market Cap indices are available: Cryptoz-10, Cryptoz-25, Cryptoz-50 and Cryptoz-100. The number represents the top X (where X=10,25,50,100) cryptocurrencies by market cap. Constituents are evaluated monthly to ensure their eligibility.

Equal Weight Indices

A popular alternative to market cap based indices is Equal Weight Indices. Market Cap indices are often criticized for being "top-heavy", meaning that the bigger components have larger influence on the index. Equal-weighted indices solve this problem by rebalancing on a regular basis to make each component have equal weightage in the index. Many investors prefer this form of indexing. Cryptoz.ai offers four equal-weight indices: Cryptoz-EW-10, Cryptoz-EW-25, Cryptoz-EW-50 and Cryptoz-EW-100.

Time Range and Data Range

Selections can be made to view data based on time intervals: A time interval can be chosen by clicking on the 1H, 24H, 1M…etc. buttons, also own custom interval can be specified for which you wish to see the data at top of the charts:

time range

For each Time Range you can also specify the granularity of the data to view. You can define the granularity by selecting any one of the buttons day/week/month i.e., how you wish to see data plotted on the chart.

Say for example: For 6 months time range, and weekly granularity, you would see 24 data points plotted on the chart with each tick representing one week. If nothing is selected default “auto” takes care of choosing most appropriate granularity for the time range you are seeing data for

Trading Pairs

The trading pairs view shows a comparison of the trading volumes of any Cryptocurrency between FIAT markets and CRYPTO markets

FIAT and CRYPTO Markets

Fiat currency is legal tender whose value is backed by the government that issued it. The U.S. dollar is fiat money, as are many other major world currencies like KRW, GBP, EUR etc.


Crypto money (or Cryptocurrency) is a decentralized digital currency in which encryption techniques are used to regulate the generation of units of currency and verify the transfer of funds, operating independently of a central bank. These include BTC, LTC, ETH, and USDT etc.

At the top of the page there is a selection dropdown where you can select a CryptoCurrency (like Bitcoin, Ethereum). By default this dropdown shows charts for “All CryptoCurrencies”, comparing their trading volume between FIAT and CRYPTO markets.

transactions select cryptocurrency

Below the chart the “Trading Pairs” page shows two tables that shows all the transactions that has happened in the selected time interval in FIAT or CRYPTO markets. Additionally one can analyze the market share of a particular currency which gives you an insight into which is the most commonly used currency for trading.

Trading Volume

The second view under the Exchanges section is the Trading Volume view, which shows the volume of selected Cryptocurrency that has been traded in selected markets across selected crypto exchanges.


This view provides three selection dropdowns:

1.Exchange Selection dropdown:

From this dropdown you can select a particular crypto exchange (like Coinbase, Binance, Gemini etc.). By default its value is set to “ALL Exchanges”.

2.Market Selection Dropdown:

From this dropdown you can specify a particular market (like BTC, XRP, LTC, ETH etc.). By default its value is set to ALL Markets.

3.Cryptocurrency selection dropdown:

From this dropdown you can select a particular cryptocurrency like Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin, Ripple etc. for which you want to view the trading volumes. By default its value is set to ALL Cryptocurrencies.

The chart below the dropdowns shows the data and just like all other charts you can specify the time interval for which you need to view the data and also the granularity of the data points to plot, you can download snapshots of the data as CSV, JSON, XLS or take a Screenshot to share with friends. Below this chart the view shows aggregated data for the selected time interval with market share of each exchange.

Arbitrage

Arbitrage is the practice of taking advantage of a price difference between two or more markets. Whenever there is a substantial mismatch in the price of a cryptocurrency in different markets buying from one market and selling into another results in “risk free” profits.

The Arbitrage opportunities page shows the variation in prices of a cryptocurrency across various crypto exchanges for the selected markets. For a day trader trading on multiple exchanges, this view can serve as a single point to check arbitrage opportunites across various crypto exchanges.

At the top of this page there are two selection dropdowns provided for selecting a particular cryptocurrency and market you need to view opportunity for. (default is ALL for markets).

Below these two selections are the tables for various markets showing data for each exchange. By default you will see a lot of tables each referring to a particular market, you can also select one particular market if you are looking for any specific market.

Volatility

Volatility is basically a statistical measure of dispersion. It is the degree of variation of a trading price series over time. It is measured as a standard deviation of the logarithmic returns

Cryptoz.ai evaluates volatility for each Cryptoz Index and each CryptoCurrency. This section is further divided into two pages i.e., Cryptoz Indices and CryptoCurrencies.

Crypto Indices

This section shows volatility charts for each of the Cryptoz Indices for various time intervals.

At the top of this page a selection dropdown for the indices is provided which is set to “All Cryptoz Indices” by default.

crypto index volatility

Futures

This page on Cryptoz.ai shows the futures contracts prices for Bitcoin from the CME and CBOE exchanges.

Now, if you are not familiar with the concept of futures trading here is a brief overview of what futures are.

What is a Futures trading or Futures contract?

A Futures Contract is basically an agreement between two parties to buy or sell as asset at a pre-determined price in the future with an intermediary involved, termed as Future Exchange.

Futures contracts are standardized contracts where everything is pre-determined, like the expiration date lot size, margin etc.

Every futures contract is time bound i.e., it has an expiration date after which the contract ceases to exist.

Contango and Backwardation

Contango and backwardation refers to the shape of the futures curve. A normal futures curve will show a rising slope as in normal situations the price of futures contract increases with time. This is termed as Contango.

But if the slope of the curve is negative i.e., the futures price falls with time due to some reasons then that is termed as Backwardation.

Bitcoin Futures

The Futures page at Cryptoz.ai shows charts for Bitcoin Futures comparing futures price with its spot price.


At the top there is a selection dropdown provided to select a futures exchange (by default “CBOE”). The charts below show futures data for the selected exchange.

Below the chart it shows the table for Contango which is basically the percentage change in the bitcoin futures price in the adjacent months.

Futures Arbitrage

The Futures page on Cryptoz.ai also provides another panel in the futures view for the futures arbitrage opportunities.

In the futures arbitrage opportunities it shows a basic comparison of the futures price between the CME and the CBOE exchange. Along with that it also shows the percentage change in the futures price.
