What are some of the benefits of investing in the EC10 Crypto Asset Bundle?
- Crypto is very risky but investing in an index based strategy such as EC10 means it's well diversified. Why? Because instead of holding one Crypto Asset such as Bitcoin (i.e. all your eggs in one basket) – you can buy the EC10 Crypto Asset Bundle, a bundle of the top 10 Crypto Assets weighted by market cap, which gives you exposure to the performance of all Top 10 Crypto Assets as opposed to just one asset.
- A major benefit of this is that should one particular Crypto Asset lose it’s shine and begin to drop outside of the Top 10 Crypto Assets, it will be removed from the EC10 Index and a new Crypto Asset will take its place. This ensures that you don’t hold onto a depreciating Crypto Asset indefinitely and are always exposed to the top performers.
- Investing on ordinary crypto exchanges can be risky because often these exchanges have experienced hacks and fraud. The Crypto Assets in the EC10 Crypto Asset Bundle are held in a highly secure institutional grade custody solution in the name of FWT Nominees on your behalf. We use a US-based regulated custodian company called BitGo Trust, where assets are placed in deep cold storage in a highly secure, multi-signature and insured facility ($100m).
- We also make use of our own multi-signature cold storage facility secured in a bank vault to keep liquid assets safe.
