SkyBridge registers Bitcoin hedge funds with SEC

The investment company of hedge fund manager Anthony Scaramucci has filed an application with the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) for approval of a Bitcoin hedge fund. The minimum investment is said to be $ 50,000 and only accessible to accredited investors.

Like from a form from the SECon December 21st, the multi-billion hedge fund „SkyBridge Capital“ has filed an application for approval of a Bitcoin fund with the American SEC. „SkyBridge Bitcoin Fund LP“ and „SkyBridge Bitcoin Fund GP LLC“ are specified as the reference person as the issuer. The fund is intended to be classified as a hedge fund. Since Anthony Scaramucci’s company has kept silent about the investment volume, no conclusions can yet be drawn about the size of the fund. However, it is known that the minimum amount for investors should amount to 50,000 US dollars. Furthermore, only accredited investors can invest in the fund.

The first reports of the approval of a Bitcoin fund came in mid-November. SkyBridge thus follows the lead wolf Grayscale. Just recently, the financial company Guggenheim invested in digital gold through the world’s largest Bitcoin fund, the Grayscale Bitcoin Trust. The Bitcoin Fund now holds Bitcoin worth over ten billion US dollars. BTC is by far the most important asset in Grayscale’s crypto portfolio, which recently posted a new record high of $ 13 billion in assets under management (AUM).

Bitcoin funds also in Germany
