Derivatives Exchange FTX Adds ARPA to its Famous Dragon Index

Dear ARPA community,

We are pleased to announce that FTX will add ARPA to the Dragon Index (DRGN-PERP), which is a basket of 8 most popular tokens of Chinese origin. As the latest addition, ARPA will have equal weight as its 8 predecessors, Bytom(BTM), IOST, NEO, NULS, Ontology(ONT), QTUM, Tron(TRX) and Vechain(VET). The re-balancing will be completed at the quarter-end.

The Dragon Index includes quarterly futures contracts, perpetual contracts and leveraged tokens (-1x hedging, 3x bull, -3x bear). By purchasing the index, traders can have exposure to all 9 popular Chinese tokens in either direction.

The FTX dragon index was designed to report a weight market price of the most popular Chinese tokens at which liquidity could easily enter or exit. The DRGN-PERP captures a comprehensive, global sample of liquidity on the highest volume and quality exchanges.

ARPA is the first and only addition to the Dragon Index after its launch on 10/29/2019. This is a significant recognition of APRA’s technological advancement, community development, token tradability, trading depth and liquidity. Dragon Index will greatly increase ARPA’s liquidity and depth on existing exchanges such as Binance, Huobi Global,, KuCoin, HitBTC, etc.

As a relatively young project, ARPA has a significantly lower market capitalization than the 8 other component projects. The market cap of NULS, albeit beingthe lowest in Dragon Index, is nearly 3 times larger than that of ARPA’s. At the same time, TRX and NEO’s market cap is 150 and 100 times higher than ARPA’s.

The gaps show both great growth potential for ARPA and considerable challenges ahead.

ARPA has made great advances since its inception. In terms of the research, ARPA assisted the China academy of information and communication technology (CAICT) in formulating the MPC national standard with Alibaba, Baidu and Ant Financial. ARPA also joined IEEE as an enterprise member and participated in the development of IEEE P2830 Shared Machine Learning standards. ARPA is an MPC Alliance corporate member, which is the first global organization for secure multi-party computing technology.

ARPA has a global community consisting of nine languages. Besides the Chinese community with 90k+ members and the English community with 30k+ members, there are more than 9,000 members in Thai, Indonesian, Russian, Vietnamese, Filipino, Turkish and Korean communities.

On December 12, 2019, ARPA was invited to speak at the China enterprise development forum held at the Great Hall of the People. During the forum, ARPA was named one of the top 10 innovative blockchain companies of China. It is worth mentioning that IOST, which has joined the dragon index, also attended the forum.

ARPA will work with BTM, IOST, NEO, NULS, ONT, QTUM, TRX and VET to develop a better crypto ecosystem for not only China but the world, and press hard for the development of blockchain technology. Stay tuned for more exciting updates from the restless ARPA team!
