The crypto sector has begun to attract attention as investors increasingly expect a rise, pushing Bitcoin beyond 40,000 dollars and creating a ripple effect in various digital currencies. In the midst of this revival, the C1 Fund, equipped with a fund of 500 million dollars, is strategically watching secondary shares with discounts up to 80%.
C1 Fund’s Ambitious Strategy and Goals
The C1 Fund, established by former Coinbase lawyers and investors, has its sights set on the leading crypto currency organizations to buy secondary shares from investors. Equipped with a presentation deck summarizing their approach, the C1 Fund aims at crypto companies with a valuation of at least 300 million dollars in the last funding round, especially those in Series C or later. The C1 Fund aims to write checks ranging from 20 million to 50 million dollars.
Referring to favorable market conditions, hyperinflation and rising interest rates, the C1 Fund believes the digital assets market is maturing for attractive valuations in the secondary market. Their presentations emphasize a commitment to buy shares at a significant discount by taking advantage of current market dynamics.
Crypto Giants on C1 Fund’s Radar
Once traded on the ASX, Hong Kong-based Animoca Brands entered the C1 Fund’s radar and it is alleged that the fund offered to buy shares at a significant discount to the company’s last valuation. Also, US-based Chainalysis, valued at 8.4 billion dollars in 2022, is a company that the C1 Fund aims to make significant discounts on its current secondary preferred shares.
Local crypto exchanges like Independent Reserve and BTC Markets are witnessing increased customer flow due to concerns over money laundering charges against the founder of Binance. With an increase in trading volumes of up to 50%, these locally regulated operators are preferred over Binance.
Investors are expecting a potential crypto renaissance with the possibility of US regulators approving a Bitcoin ETF in January. This approval could pave the way for major Wall Street players to market their funds to a broader investor base. Such a flow could give the crypto currency field a chance to grow even further. The growth will particularly lead to an increase in the value of crypto currencies.
