Silicon Valley VCs Help Crypto Hedge Fund Reach Quarter Billion Target
With bitcoin hovering at around only $9,000 and the entire cryptocurrency market at similar low levels, short term speculators are acting as if a great calamity is upon us. Long term investors on the other hand are just entering the ecosystem now and building up a portfolio of assets that offer growth opportunities uncorrelated to stocks and commodities.
Quarter Billion Crypto Hedge Fund
'We're very fortunate to have some of the most well-known investors in New York City and Silicon Valley investing with us. The past six months have been absolutely incredible. Since launch, there's been a torrent of interest in Multicoin Capital, validating the overwhelming need for professional fund managers that understand the market intimately,' said Kyle Samani, co-founder and Managing Partner, Multicoin Capital. 'Today there are more than 200 crypto hedge funds in the mix. We stand out by simply doing what other investors like Buffet and Graham did in the stock market. We seek to build a brand and a reputation that accurately mirrors the intellectual rigor we put into each and every position we take.'
Crypto Investing is Different
'While there are lots of similarities between crypto investing and traditional startup investing, there are many differences,' Samani explained. 'Most obviously, crypto assets become liquid much sooner in their life cycles than traditional private equity,' he added. 'In addition to liquidity, everything in crypto is open source, which requires thinking about investing in a fundamentally different way.'
