ACV Blockchain Funds

Why Invest In Blockchain?

Blockchain is an innovative, distributed, shared ledger technology that facilitates new ways of recording transactions and tracking assets in a worldwide digital economy. Virtually anything of value can be tracked and traded on a blockchain network.  Learn more about the sector via our Blockchain Education Center.

The technology is still early, but it has enormous potential—at the scale of the Internet. Among the applications: financial services, identity, computing power, social media, rights management, and more. Investing now is both potentially lucrative and appropriate in the context of a diversified portfolio.

Our funds are open only to qualified investors

Because of the risks associated with the blockchain sector, investing in our funds are not suitable for everyone. We accept investments only from individuals and entities that the US regulators would classify as accredited investors (who are also "Qualified Clients").

A "qualified client" must generally meet one of the following criteria before they can form an advisory relationship with a firm like Applied Crypto Ventures:

  • An individual with at least $1 million in assets under management with the advisor immediately after entering into an investment advisory contract with the advisor.
  • An individual with a net worth of more than $2.1 million, either by themselves or jointly with a spouse, immediately before entering into an advisory contract, excluding the value of their primary residence.
  • An individual who meets the definition of a "qualified purchaser" at the time an advisory contract is entered into, which requires ownership of at least $5 million of investments.
  • An individual who is an executive officer, director, trustee, general partner, or person serving in a similar capacity, or the advisor.
  • An individual who is an employee of the advisor who participates in the investment activities of the advisor, and has done so for at least 12 months.
