As digital asset markets face increased volatility and turbulence, managing a portfolio of cryptocurrencies can be an overwhelming endeavor, even for the savviest of investors.
Ill-equipped with the time, energy and knowledge needed to successfully navigate today’s sea of new investment opportunities, this investor group can find themselves exposed to extreme vulnerabilities and traps in their early stage investment efforts.
A key attribute of blockchain technology and its power to create distributed immutable ledgers is its ability to track assets and currency. This signals a groundbreaking shift from today’s prevailing operational model, one that has the potential to alter the trajectory of how investors engage with the traditional finance sector.
Mirroring the flourishing success of CRYPTO20, the world’s first tokenized cryptocurrency index fund, comes the unveiling of the umbrella brand Invictus Capital, a global enterprise seeking to offer a fresh approach to the crypto-based investment landscape.
Invictus seeks to deliver a broad cross section of data-science-backed funds, alongside CRYPTO20, for those cryptocurrency investors seeking diversified access to the cryptocurrency market. With their fund-as-a-token model, the third-party fees that extract a portion of investor profits are eliminated.
Spotlighting on the Invictus Hyperion Fund
Invictus has introduced the Invictus Hyperion fund with a launch date set for April 30.
Here is a brief overview of the new tokenized fund aimed at independent investors seeking exposure to projects before they begin initial coin offerings (ICOs):
Invictus Hyperion Fund is a syndicated venture capital fund that allows independent investors access to early-stage blockchain projects. Through the “IHF” token, investors are provided access to a suite of well-vetted investments involving ICOs and private and public presales. Employing Invictus’ data-focused methodology, the Hyperion fund can highlight promising investments in blockchain technology. You can download the Invictus Hyperion Fund whitepaper here.
Invictus’ Titan AI tool is one of a number of tools and predictive models that will be employed to determine investment opportunity potential and legitimacy. This watchdog service and tool mitigates fraud and copycat projects by analyzing ICO whitepapers and easily identifying plagiarized content. Read more about the Titan AI Tool here.
“Performing due diligence is vital for the health of the cryptocurrency community — we need to stand together to prevent dubious and fraudulent projects from taking investor funds,” said Daniel Schwartzkopff, founder and CEO of Invictus Capital.
Schwartzkopff is a South African business executive and serial entrepreneur who has founded several venture capital backed companies. He has been featured in everything from CNBC to the Wall Street Journal and is a graduate of the University of Cape Town, where he studied chemical engineering.
“We are employing proven data science and machine learning tools in the design and testing of our funds, as well as to justify our investment decisions,” Schwartzkopff said. “Our goal is to establish the industry standard while delivering peace of mind, security and simplicity to our investors, all at a low cost.”
Data science allows Invictus to backtest various fund strategies in order to identify more optimal sets of parameters — i.e., the number of coins in the fund, how often to rebalance and whether a cap should be placed on the asset weightings, Schwartzkopff said.
“Intuition is often wrong, and this kind of analysis allows us to effectively justify our decision-making,” he added.
Ultimately, some of the core values behind blockchain technology are what drive the work of Invictus.
“Transparency and the scientific method are core tenets of our philosophy at Invictus,” Schwartzkopff concluded. “We believe that all funds should be developed and justified with a data-backed approach.”
