Investment Basket Icon 01 LARGE

Tracking the ups and down of Bitcoin, Ethereum, and the thousands of altcoins out there is already quite a task. Add NFTs and other specialized crypto assets and it’s easy to be overwhelmed—especially for new investors. To simplify the process for everyone, Makara uses investment baskets. These curated selections of diversified digital assets give you broad exposure to different segments of the market. And since the baskets are rebalanced quarterly, you can be confident that, regardless of the changes in the market, your position will be adjusted to help you stay focused on your goals.

We believe Makara’s baskets represent a clear improvement over current single-asset crypto investment options. Think of them as crypto starter kits, offering a range of options tailored to specific interests, goals, and tolerance for risk. (Read about each basket’s specific makeup here.) If you want broad exposure to the industry as a whole, for example, the Universe Basket includes assets that span Makara’s entire investable universe, making it a relatively conservative choice. For those who can tolerate larger market swings, the Momentum Basket exposes investors to Bitcoin and Ethereum, periodically monitoring both currencies and adjusting the allocation based on the projected return of each. 

Lately, a number of traditional financial institutions have offered their clients exposure to crypto without actually buying crypto, such as Bitwise’s index fund. Makara’s baskets, by contrast, give clients ownership of the actual cryptocurrency. If you buy a basket that contains Bitcoin, Ether, Litecoin, and Pax Gold, you personally own all those tokens. 

Why should you care about investment baskets?

The rise of cryptocurrency has led to an explosion of interest, but it hasn’t made things any easier to understand. Makara’s baskets offer a simple way to diversify crypto holdings—and make the industry more accessible for everyone, regardless of their experience level.
