This is a general idea, and better ideas and refinement can be made. The point of this is that it could become a very popular token in the crypto-sphere…
Build a token (for here, let’s call it TD - e.g. Token Diversified). TD’s represents a portion of a diverse set of tokens and coins stored by smart contracts on AE’s blockchain AND (this is important) smart contracts on other smart contract capable blockchains. The value of TD would be the combined value of all assets stored in the TD network of smart contracts divided by the number of issued TD on the AE blockchain.
People wanting TD would send some eligible token or coin to a smart contract, with an AE address for where the TD will be sent. The smart contract on AE will crate new TD and send to the address. The TD will be backed, so, they will not be subject as much to market dynamics other than the perceived value people find in diversifying.
People may trade TD back for one of the eligible coins/tokens, but I suggest with a small fee to keep TD as the preferred traded asset.
The advantage of this is that people wanting to diversify their exposure to one digital asset, can benefit by having the value spread out with others coins. Also, it might be possible to make it easy (no fee’s to change out) to other eligible coins and buy others to encourage a good balance of coins.
From an investors perspective, just a simple balancing of tokens can be better than holding one coin or token. And the value of TD will maintain average value and thus do better than the worse coin/token among those eligible because of this.
For example, if you had two coins, A and B, and as A’s value increased, you sold off A and bought B until the overall portfolio was balanced in value again between A and B. then in the long run, this portfolio would do better than the worse of A and B. But it won’t do better than the best of A and B. People wanting to diversify will see this benefit.
