Over the years, our blockchain portfolio has grown to be well-rounded. Investing in added value, with a good eye for social and economical developments within the blockchain ecosystem.
How do we determine our portfolio?
We're a traditional fund in a new market. Our experience allows for a unique blockchain portfolio.
During the last years we have seen the blockchain ecosystem become saturated with many hundreds of projects and start-ups. For a while it has been a question of who's the best marketeer instead of who has the best solution, resulting in many people investing in unrealistic expectations and promises.
Three projects that have never done any real marketing in their early phases but have proved very successful, are Bitcoin, Ethereum and MakerDAO. It is exactly these projects we see mature every day and of which we see their solution contributing to a new financial system. Years of closely observing their network effects and development has given us a unique perspective on the market.

What are our blockchain investments?
With our experience we have already determined the larger part of our blockchain portfolio.
Here you can find short descriptions of our current investments:
Ethereum is a global, decentralized platform for money and all kinds of applications. On Ethereum, you can write code that controls money, and build applications accessible anywhere in the world.
We are especially exited about the future of Ethereum because of it's already fundamental role in blockchain technology.
Many hundreds of projects are already building on this blockchain platform and many thousands of software developers are experimenting with the software every month. For more information check out the video of Ethereum here.
Bitcoin has the potential to be the digital gold of the electronic age. It's a store of value, it's global, and it's the best-secured network the world has ever seen.
It all started with Bitcoin. Its robust properties have made sure that it kept going for over a decade.
Bitcoin is a currency that can be trusted, that is transparent, simple and accessible. We think that Bitcoin, because it is decentralization in its core, will play a fundamental role in the new economy.
MakerDAO is a decentralized organization built on Ethereum. Maker works to minimize and manage the volatility of DAI, its stable token, that is pegged to the U.S. dollar.
We are particularly fond of MakerDAO because a stable token has been one of the most desired innovations since Ethereum. Simply put, how can cryptocurrency become global money when its value fluctuates as it does?
MakerDAO has solved this problem by developing DAI, a stable cryptocurrency backed by digital assets, and fully managed in a decentralized way.
Augur is one of the earlier projects build on Ethereum
And they are arguably the most complex one. Augur has developed to a decentralized prediction market. Being able to make any market about any prediction could be a major early use case for blockchain technology.
DASH is one of our assets because of it's achievements as a payment system in developing countries and South America.
Especially those countries that have suffered from extreme inflation or monetary policy have shown interest in using DASH. Also, DASH is represented by a functioning decentralized organisation that has been an example for everyone.
Kyber Network is build on Ethereum and offers an easy way to swap between one and another crypto currency.
Kyber Network has become integrated in many other applications and proves to be great solution to easily, in a decentralized way, buy and sell crypto currency. Kyber's protocol is already implemented in the native crypto wallet of the Samsung Galaxy S10.
