Peer started in mid-2017 with SludgeFeed, a news website focused on cryptocurrency and technology. In early 2018, the team began developing the industry's first 100-altcoin index, the AltDex 100 (ALT100), as a benchmark for large-cap cryptocurrencies and tokens.
AltDex, a crypto index platform, launched in July 2018, offering investors a way to monitor major cryptocurrencies and the overall market. The site started with three indices: the AltDex 100, Exchange Index (ALTEXC), and Privacy Index (ALTPRV). A fourth index was launched in August to track the leading masternode-based cryptocurrencies (ALTMSN).
AltDex provides market capitalization-weighted crypto indices that serve as benchmarks across multiple digital asset categories.
