Moreover, Chng also underscored that the funds are only available for accredited investors. Indeed, the fund will allow institutional investors to buy, store, and sell large amounts of cryptocurrency. According to Chng, the fund acquires physical BTC, which means the firm will amass real Bitcoins rather than derivative instruments.

Get private loans secured by BTC

Besides, Fintonia Bitcoin Physical Fund, there is the Fintonia Secured Yield Fund. Notably, the other fund allows investors to access private loans secured by BTC. According to Chng, the flagship crypto asset is a robust form of collateral for loans. The asset trades 24/7 and is highly liquid with about $30 billion to $60 billion on a daily basis. Moreover, as per requirements BTC can be quickly liquidated in comparison with other commodities and real estate.

BTC funds rely on third-party custodians

It is also revealed that both Fintonia Bitcoin Physical Fund and the Fintonia Secured Yield Fund rely on a third-party custodian storing clients’s crypto assets on cold wallets. Hence, investing in these funds means funds are insured against theft and hacking. 

Meanwhile, the fund manager also aims to reduce crypto-to-fiat friction. Fintonia is a MAS-regulated firm that follows Know Your Customer (KYC) and Anti-Money Laundering compliances. Hence, the Bitcoin funds will offer professional investors with a recognized legal and regulatory structure which is similar to that of a typical mutual fund. Moreover, Fintonia Group has been involved in crypto since the early days and now specifically focuses on digital assets as it has evolved into a separate asset class.
