PlannerDAO Co-Founder Steve Larsen, CPA, CFP® Launches Comprehensive Digital Asset Index For Financial Planners

SPOKANE, Wash., Jan. 18, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- PlannerDAO Co-Founder Steve Larsen, CPA, CFP® today announces a revolutionary digital asset index to pave the way for greater cryptocurrency access and adaptation among the financial planning community. The PlannerDAO Digital Asset Opportunity Index (PDAO), developed by Larsen for PlannerDAO, is constructed under a three-pillar formula for facilitating the mass adoption of a digital asset index: zero fees, broad-market implementation and decentralized governance.

PlannerDAO is providing this index to financial planners and investors around the world with zero fees or profits going back to the decentralized autonomous organization, nor PDAO's creator. While there may be transaction fees to a blockchain or protocol when assets are exchanged, PlannerDAO wants the financial planning community to be the true beneficiaries of this index.

"At PlannerDAO, our mission is to create a level playing field for those trying to create economic freedom for themselves, which is why a zero-fee model is essential," said Larsen. "Digital assets could represent the best wealth creation opportunity of our lifetimes, and we want to bring new folks into the mix so that all this wealth doesn't end up with the same ultra-affluent people and institutions it traditionally has."

PDAO, unique in that it is not exclusive to custodial wallets, is available for trading on Ethereum Mainnet and Polygon, and Larsen says PlannerDAO is open to launching the index on any blockchain or layer-2 solution that offers secure and affordable transacions. It enters the market with holdings in seven core sectors:

  1. Layer-1 Blockchains
  2. Layer-2 & Sidechains
  3. Infrastructure
  4. Decentralized Finance
  5. Media & NFTs
  6. Metaverse & Gaming
  7. DAOs & Social

PDAO is managed by a working group within PlannerDAO in a decentralized, transparent manner. PlannerDAO's fast-growing membership includes Certified Financial Planners, Certified Public Accountants, Chartered Financial Analysts and Certified Digital Asset Advisors.

"We're a motivated, collaborative and growing group of top financial planning minds driven to make the PDAO among most relevant indexes in the universe – and metaverse, of course," said Larsen. "And the great news is that if there is something you don't like about PDAO, come and help us improve it."
