$INDEX Tokenomics

Currently, $INDEX derives value primarily from being a governance token; in practice, this takes the form of voting on improvement protocols for the Index Coop (IIPs), deciding which products to launch and maintain, and also for meta-governance proposals relating to underlying tokens held in $DPI (and future index products).
$INDEX should be viewed as a ‘proof-of-work’ token as it is distributed to those who contribute to the progress of Index Coop. We believe that focusing on decisions that benefit the DAO in the long term is what brings value to $INDEX, and it is ultimately up to $INDEX holders to determine broader value accrual for the DAO.
