While BlackRock Inc., the largest asset management firm in the world, made headlines last week with the announcement of a proposed Bitcoin fund, Australia’s Holon Global Investments was already ahead of the curve, despite not being in the same league as BlackRock. In the midst of the so-called “crypto winter,” or when the value of crypto markets had collapsed to $793 billion from a November high of around US$3 trillion, Holon, which touts itself as a next-generation fund manager focusing on Web3 infrastructure, established three cryptocurrency funds in June. This occurred when the capitalization of crypto markets had plunged more than 70% from their November high.
The majority of Holon’s funds are held in Bitcoin, Ethereum, and the less well-known cryptocurrency, Filecoin. Holon is an active participant in the Filecoin network and possesses 27 petabytes of data storage capacity that has been built in western Sydney. The company, which provides cryptocurrency custody services in partnership with the United States company Gemini Trust Co., which Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss founded, stated that it figured its funds might find a market among those who do not have a great deal of experience with direct trading on exchanges.
