Scaramucci Kickstarts Bitcoin Fund

According to Yahoo Finance, Anthony Scaramucci, the founder of the $ 9.2 billion fund-of-funds SkyBridge Capital, has launched a Bitcoin fund to allow Registered Investment Advisers (RIAs) to invest in BTC.

SKyBridge, which will operate the fund, recently filed a Form D with the Securities and Exchange Commission for this new fund.

Founder Scaramucci poured $ 25 million of his own capital into the fund to start the fund and show that he has confidence in it.

He believes this fund will allow a greater number of investors to get exposure to BTC. The problem is that many institutional actors or even retailers find it difficult to invest in BTC.

A big buyer of these coins is MicroStrategy. The American business services company wrote in a press release released earlier this week that it bought $ 650,000,000 worth of BTC:

“TYSONS CORNER, Va. – (BUSINESS WIRE) – Dec. Sep. 21, 2020 – MicroStrategy® Incorporated (Nasdaq: MSTR) (the “Company”), the largest independent publicly traded business intelligence company, announced today that it has purchased approximately 29,646 additional Bitcoins for approximately $ 650.0 million in cash has Treasury Reserve Policy at an average price of approximately $ 21,925 per bitcoin, including fees and charges. “

The company believes BTC will appreciate in value over time to outperform the growth in value of its debt, as it bought those coins with debt created from the sale of senior convertible bonds.
