A more direct approach to building a diversified crypto-asset token
It came to my attention (thanks to https://www.reddit.com/user/Shmauzow/) on Reddit’s Ethereum sub-reddit that a token can be built with TokenSets that has pre-allocated tokens within that token.
Today, I created the XDCI (Diversified Coin Index) token on TokenSets.
I am currently limited to ERC-20 tokens that have a high liquidity on markets.
I have chosen wrapped Ether (wETH) instead of the original Ether as wETH conforms to Ethereum’s own ERC-20 standard while ETH does not. This may avoid issues in case TokenSets migrates to a blockchain other than Ethereum for its offerings.
You can buy XDCI using MetaMask (https://metamask.io/) on TokenSets: https://www.tokensets.com/v2/set/0x20207FBe2621669d74AC0BEe81128fC80196C682
