Invictus Capital, from 2017 to today

In 2017, investing in the cryptocurrency market was not as easy as it can be today. New projects were born every day and raised several million dollars; it was the fashion of Initial Coin Offering (ICO).

It was then difficult to differentiate fraudulent projects from real nuggets. Moreover, most of the cryptocurrencies having achieved the largest fundraising in 2017 no longer part of the current landscape Of the industry.

Crypto20 (C20), a token to invest globally in cryptocurrencies?

The cryptocurrency market evolves at a lightning speed. From Dash (DASH) and Monero (XMR) to Solana (SOL) and Terra (LUNA) today, the ranking of the most capitalized cryptocurrencies on the market not the same than 4 years ago. And the components of the C20 too. Thanks to it, investors benefit from evolving exposure to this flourishing asset class.

The C20 fund follows a passive strategy, more suited to “Medium and long term investors”. Each week, the twenty assets making up the portfolio are reallocated according to the evolution of their capitalizations. If a new asset enters the top 20 most capitalized cryptocurrencies (excluding stablecoin), it replaces the one that left in C20’s portfolio.
