  • Section 3.2 – CF Digital Asset Classification Structure
  • Section 3.2.1 – Definitions
  • Section 3.2.2 – CF DACS Definitions

A table outlining proposed changes follows.

Summary of proposed changes to CF DACS Methodology


The latest review of the CF Investible Universe as well as the evolution of Digital Asset definitions resulted in changes to the CF DACS classification structure, and definitions, specifically, a new segment needs to be introduced, and existing definitions need to be updated.

Implementation Timeline

The Administrator proposes to implement the proposed changes to the CF Digital Asset Classification Structure Methodology at 1100 London time on April 9th, 2024. This means all products will utilise CF DACS' new structure and definitions from that date onwards.

Consultation Process

The consultation will begin on March 25th, 2024, and will end on April 8th, 2024, at 1600 London Time. All responses will be treated confidentially in accordance with the Administrator's policies and procedures, and will be overseen by the CF Oversight Function in accordance with the UK Benchmarks Regulation (UK BMR).
