The cryptocurrency investment firm Pantera Capital reported that in the five years since the company was founded, its total profit amounted to more than 10,000%.
It's no surprise that the company president, Dan Morehead, and investment director Joey Krug still remain optimistic about bitcoin. They stated that “the total profit of the fund since its foundation was 10,136.15% minus commissions and expenses”.
In 2013, in an email sent by Morehead, it was predicted that bitcoin, which then traded at a price of $104, would grow to $5,000. This was explained by the fact that “it surpasses cash, electronic money, gold, etc. It can do everything the same as each of these methods of payment. This is the first global currency since the time of gold. This is the first system of payments without borders”.
Three months later, when bitcoin traded at a price of $253, Morehead wrote:
“In my opinion, this is similar to the decision to buy shares of Microsoft in those days when they cost 2 cents per share. It was difficult to commit to it, even when the shares were worth 1 cent. However, in the course of time, it became clear that this would be a great deal. I believe that bitcoin is now in the same position. This is the first world currency after gold and the world's only system of payments without borders with a market capitalization of $3 billion. Now, as Silk Road has sunk into oblivion, a new wave of more demanding investors is coming”.
Pantera, which from then onward has launched its own hedge fund for investment in blockchain start-ups, plans to “discuss the Venture Fund III and the blockchain revolution within the next few months.”
“We have organized meetings in many cities in case investors want to personally get acquainted with other investors who share their interest in blockchain,” the representative of the company writes.
Some of the company's recent investments include investing in the start-up named Origin, focusing on the economy of joint consumption, as well as in the start-up called Basis, which plans to create a “stable cryptocurrency”.
At the end of last year, it was reported that the hedge fund Pantera Bitcoin generated a profit of 25,004% for its investors. Such success was achieved due to the fact that throughout the time the company bought up bitcoins and did not sell them.
