We invest in ideas that can transform communities and impact lives across the world by reducing layers of intermediaries and/or processes. Currently some of our investments in projects include:
(i) A USD pegged stable coin project to ease cross border payments. Stable coins protect from the volatility of cryptocurrencies and reduce transaction costs and time associated with foreign exchange. We are tying up with 35 crypto exchanges in North America Asia & Europe.
(ii) Investing in cryptocurrency exchange startups that cater to markets open to cryptocurrencies. We have found Asia to be the most crypto-friendly markets and are helping 2 cryptocurrency exchanges strategize and expand their business.

Our inhouse finance team performs in-depth analyses of global crypto currency investment firm strategies, conducts interviews the portfolio managers, understand their strategies before giving out their recommendation.
We help simplify the probability theory of various market variables influencing blockchain business.
We analyze statistical outcomes of the largest cryptocurrencies (determined by securities industry capitalization), of which Bitcoin is the most prominent example. We characterize their exchange rates versus the U.S. Dollar mark by fitting parametric dispersions to them. We have found that return are clearly non-normal, however, no single distribution convulsion well jointly to all the cryptocurrencies analyzed. We find that for the most popular currencies, such as Bitcoin and Litecoin, the generalized hyperbolic distribution is the best fit, while for the smaller cryptocurrencies the normal inverse Gaussian distribution, generalized T distribution, and Laplace distribution give good fits. These statistical analyses are important for investment and risk direction purposes when we give recommendation to clients or make investments ourselves..
