Three Funds, Investment Strategies

Israeli Firm Launches Three Cryptocurrency Investment FundsCryptocurrency investment firm Silver Castle has launched two cryptocurrency funds with another on the way. Bloomberg describes the company as “Israel’s first dedicated cryptocurrency investment firm for institutional and accredited investors.”

Silver Castle CEO Eli Mizroch told news.Bitcoin.com on Wednesday, “We have now launched our first two funds. They are both Cayman Islands-registered and are open to institutional and accredited investors.” He elaborated:

The first fund is algo-based, momentum-driven, long [and] short on bitcoin and top five [crypto]currencies. The second is smart beta, fully-invested in the top 10 coins. We aim to launch our third fund, a VC fund, that will participate in token offerings, in Q1 2019.

Bloomberg reported on Sunday that the first fund “picks the five biggest coins by market capitalization,” adding that this algorithmic trading system “has been used in-house for over a year and the portfolio has achieved ‘high double-digit’ returns in dollar terms despite bitcoin’s plunge this year.” In contrast, the second fund “is fully invested, automated and offers a basket of the top 10 coins, weighted according to an algorithm.”

The news outlet also noted that Silver Castle launched the first two funds this month “and expects to have $50 million under management by the end of the year.”
