CRUX is quite slow in updating even the most important packages. Not good for my usage. Might be good for you...

Said about CRUX Linux as an alternative

Arch was originally inspired by CRUX. The latter still adheres to its ideas of minimalism and modularity, which is (arguably) increasingly not true for Arch.

CRUX resembles Void, i.e. it follows similar ideas of BSD-like simplicity, but CRUX is much older, therefore more stable and more tested.
