Liquid Token Fund

The Liquid Token Fund offers our partners a differentiated risk/return profile when compared to the general digital assets asset market while avoiding exposure to leverage, ICOs, or uncovered shorts. By following our own digital assets-native valuation frameworks to identify short-to-medium term dislocations in the digital assets market, we are able to provide both long and short exposure for our partners using proprietary technology & methods we have developed in-house over the last half decade. While our core positions may rotate in weighting, we utilize a first principles approach to invest in assets that have a clear product market fit and real world value proposition as it relates to institutional adoption of the digital assets economy. We are activist investors through governance in our portfolio assets to drive long term value creation and keep our fingers on the pulse in this fast-paced emerging market. The ultimate result is a safer and more effective exposure to the best digital assets digital assets has to offer, in real time.
