The cryptocurrency exchange Bitfinex has added its first $280 million hedge fund Fulgur Alpha to its site.
Fulgur Alpha is a Bahamas-based cryptocurrency hedge fund available only to accredited investors. The minimum investment in Fulgur Alpha is $10 million, while the fund promises a stable income with a single rate.
Customer accounts are held at the custodial service Delchain Limited and are managed by Deltec Fund Services, also located in the Bahamas. Bitfinex CTO Paolo Ardoino noted:
“This structure is very similar to the structure of traditional hedge funds: a safe place of trading (Bitfinex), custodial service (Delchain) and fund manager (Deltec Fund Services).”
Ardoino also said that various people and organizations, including cryptocurrency hedge funds, trade on the Bitfinex platform. However, Fulgur Alpha was the first cryptocurrency fund of this size to appear on the site.
Note that investment in a hedge fund is not available to residents of the United States and the Bahamas. Also, it is forbidden to invest in the fund to citizens of countries under US sanctions, for example, Iran and North Korea.
“We believe that this is a new trend for 2020-2021 since hedge funds provide better protection to investors and are more controlled by supervisory authorities. We see an increased number of integration requests,” said Ardoino.
Let us recall that at the end of last year, Bitfinex announced the strengthening of user identification procedures (KYC) and requested additional information from customers of the site.
