Phuture

In the last few months, Phuture has undergone some major changes which we are excited to talk more about in this Medium post. For new readers, Phuture is a decentralised protocol built for the creation and investment of passive index strategies. Our mission is to provide easy access to token based indices through a unique, powerful and flexible index creation tool.

Firstly, we have rebranded to Phuture. It is our view that as DAO structures proliferate and become more ubiquitous, as they have in DeFi, it is no longer necessary to explicitly include DAO in our name. Along with the…


This article provides a first look into the PhutureDAO index creation process demonstrating the protocols intuitive user experience and functionality.

The designs showcased in this article are preliminary and are subject to material changes before launch.

1. Sector Selection

The initial step in building an index is selecting the theme that will define the assets within that index. The Phuture platform provides the user with a curated set of choices to make this decision easier. Selecting a sector will provide access to the affiliated tokens. This list will be updated as new categories emerge to ensure it remains comprehensive.

We believe in the power of ‘why’. This piece answers some basic why’s and showcases the reasons PhutureDAO will lead in indexing the token economy.

Why now?

Emerging sectors within the crypto sphere are starting to show real promise. We believe that the token economy has many use cases and possibilities. That’s why we are focused on building an index creation and investment platform that emphasises a permissionless structure and allows for our index products to evolve with the token economy.

With the recent increase in price there has been renewed interest in crypto assets. We are seeing non-crypto users…

This is the second in a three part series showcasing the mechanics behind the PhutureDAO index platform. In this post, we will draw attention to the rebalancing system which provides the functionality to move each index asset on the platform from its current weight towards its target weight.

Who pays for rebalancing?

The PhutureDAO’s rebalancing system is actuated by traders and liquidity providers within the ecosystem. Each participant will call the rebalancing function when they interact with the protocol. Therefore, each swap and liquidity…

In today’s post we discuss passive investing, the history, and most importantly, what the future holds and the role of open innovation.

Passive investing involves a longer-term investment strategy that looks to increase returns by minimising active buying and selling on a day-to-day basis. In traditional finance, passive investing is very popular, with 18% of total equity exposure represented by index-type products.

The first index was created on May 1st 1975 by John C Bogle. John founded The Vanguard Group, which today has an…

In this post, we will explore the mechanics of the matching engine built into the architecture of PhutureDAO protocol. This post is the first of a three-part series showcasing how the Phuture system functions.

First, let’s answer the question ‘Why do we need a matching engine?’

The matching engine marries base and quote assets together in equal value to facilitate their deposit into their respective liquidity pool. In addition, the matching engine enables unbalanced liquidity provision.

The theory of the matching engine.

When a…

Listed here is our vision for the ‘phuture’ of the PhutureDAO eco-system. Ultimately, the community can take it in whichever direction they decide, but we thought it would be cool to share our initial thoughts for the launch.

Following the success of our last post, ‘The Secret PhutureDAO MasterPlan (just between you and me)’ — we are pleased to deliver the follow up.

For those reading this and not familiar with PhutureDAO…

As you already know, PhutureDAO is creating a range of benchmark decentralised programmable indexes. Most people are familiar with PhutureDAO and our initial index that is due to be launched, ‘The Defi Index’…


As we progress closer to the launch of PhutureDAO conceptual ideas are turning into code and it’s bringing to light new ideas that we can layer into future releases. With all these new ideas, it has been important for us to structure the roll-out of the PhutureDAO, to ensure that we don’t segregate our user base across multiple versions of the platform. At a micro level this has meant considering future features and building the foundational elements into the v1 release to enable a smooth expansion of the product. At a macro level we have been considering the key building…


Decentralised finance has grown immensely since the beginning of 2019 increasing the value locked in contract by 519% and crossing the $1bn mark in February 2020.

Investors who previously bought Bitcoin as their first crypto asset investment are becoming increasingly interested in the opportunities that reside in decentralised finance. This is compounded by the talented teams that are innovating and creating exceptional products in this area. As the crypto markets mature we envisage a greater emphasis on alt-coin dominance that is chiefly led by decentralised finance.

Defi now encompasses the following categories…

- Lending and Borrowing

- Derivatives

- Exchanges
