Get Liquid with Astronaut Capital

We really hope you have been enjoying our weekly issue of Dark Pools by the desk at Astronaut Capital and Picolo Research.

We do our best to give you a taste of some of the random analysis and thoughts that we have going through our head every week. One thing is for sure; there is never a dull day in this market.

Also, a quick ‘thank you’ to the thousands of new subscribers that have joined us in the last few weeks. Keep sharing and spreading the word!

On that note, we mentioned that we have some big news to be released.

Since early 2017, Astronaut Capital, together with its independent research-house Picolo Research, has guided investors through the crypto market by leading in due-diligence, analysis, and above all, transparency.

Today, we roll out another chapter.

The Astronaut Capital Liquid Crypto Fund

The team at Astronaut are pleased to announce the launch and opening of the Astronaut Capital Liquid Crypto Fund.

Over the past 12 months, the management of Astronaut has gained feedback from a targeted segment of institutional, corporate and accredited investors to form a vehicle that is safe, flexible, liquid and above all, transparent for investment into digital assets.

Not just another Index Fund

The rise of index funds and single-asset exposure vehicles have flooded the market of late. While much of this can be attributed to the recent outperformance of Bitcoin, there is little doubt that the Alpha in years to come will be from exposure in growth and emerging digital assets.

The Liquid Fund differentiates itself from ‘long-only’ index structures by taking exposure in fundamentally sound emerging projects whilst still adhering to the liquidity parameters of high-turnover secondary markets.

With the ability to hedge and create ‘net-short’ exposure through seasonal and cyclical declines, the strategy puts risk mitigation and capital preservation as one of its highest priorities.

Birds-eye view

The investment fund is a traditional structure and operates as a long/short vehicle for the trading of cryptocurrencies.

  • The mandate is focused on liquid-only crypto exposure with the ability to take positions both long/short based on fundamental, qualitative and technical analysis

  • The investment strategy is conducive to deployment of large amounts of capital, with the flexibility of quarterly redemptions for large subscribers

  • Investments decisions are driven by our team at Picolo Research and the Astronaut Capital Investment Committee

  • The fund is traditional structure (non-tokenized), audited, fully custodized and registered under CIMA

  • Subscription is open-ended for institutional investors, family offices, venture capital firms and select strategic accredited investors
