Why is There a Market Opportunity?

Unusual inefficiencies and a nuanced, still-developing structure across cryptocurrency markets create “alpha” opportunities to profit with the ability to mitigate risk.

  • Structural Market Inefficiencies: Traditional funds and institutions face high barriers to entry due to fragmented liquidity
    across exchanges, counterparty management challenges, security, and custody
    constraints, and regulatory issues.
  • Demand for Leverage:
    Speculative retail capital generally outpaces institutional arbitrage flow, bidding up futures over spot and increasing yields across the ecosystem.
  • New Financial Primitives:
    Decentralized Finance (DeFi), built from the ground up on the blockchain, creates new
    types of yield opportunities for first movers and crypto-native investors.
