Introducing the Coin Hunt World! Cubieverse Index

What Is an Index?

An index is a way to track the performance of a group of assets in a standardized way.

It could be constructed as a broad-based index that captures all the items in Coin Hunt World!, or more specialized such as indexes that track a particular category like cubies, blueprints, or structures.

The Cubieverse Index

The Cubieverse Index is constructed from all items in the game. Essentially, it tracks the performance of a portfolio that has one of everything.

Here is a look at the index performance since price data collection began last fall.

How the Index Works

The index was arbitrarily assigned a base value of 100. So if a player owned one of everything in October 2021, the value of their portfolio was 100 ‘points’.

In most cases, the relative change of an index is more important than the actual numeric value representing the index. So with the Cubieverse Index currently at 133, that number means the index is currently 33% higher than its base level. Assuming a hunter held one of all game items since last fall, they would have seen a portfolio value increase of 33%.

While an astute active trader could see superior returns, this index shows the power of passive investing in the Cubieverse, without the need to play the market.

Chart Analysis

Keyflation is immediately apparent, with prices rising rapidly over the last couple of months.

However, this chart also reveals that inflation only really took hold in late June, not immediately following the game-changing mid-April update. In fact, for the first couple of weeks after the introduction of walking quests and supercharged mystery boxes, one can see significant deflation, as the velocity of spending slowed dramatically while hunters figured out how they were going to spend their keys going forward.

How High Will It Go?

The Cubieverse Index is a standardized way to track the value of game items in Coin Hunt World! One would expect the rise in the index to slow at some point, once there is enough supply to meet demand. But as demand for cubies will almost certainly increase as more utility is revealed, where this index is six months or a year from now is anyone’s guess.

Until next time – Happy Hunting!

    Thanks, Peregrine – this is a engaging pitch! Investing in legacy items could turn out to be a shrewd move.

    I’m imagining all the things you could do with different slices – like see if a basket of items introduced in year one and a basket of items introduced in year two inflate at different rates; or see if there’s a big difference in basket valuation between territories.

    I hope source data from an auction house API is coming soon – it would make all of this so much easier.

      Agree about the API – may that day come soon.

      Great ideas for slicing up the data! I’ll see what I can do to get some charts for those baskets.

    Even after the keyflation, there was a definite ceiling where nobody would break the purple threshold, until the architect sold for over a purple and then the same blueprints and cubies that sold for under a purple suddenly started selling for double their pricing and going far into purple territory. It was almost like players have recently started spending every last key they have in the bidding wars.

      So true. You can see that on the chart when that ceiling was broken, prices just shot up. You would think players have to run out of keys at some point. =)

    UK players have to use Biteeu not uphold for transfers.
