Coin Capital Management Launches New Bitcoin Hedge Fund

As the Winklevoss twins attempt to get regulatory approval for their bitcoin exchange-traded fund, we now have another fund that revolves around the crypto-currency. According to FINalternatives, Coin Capital Management has launched the new fund. Managing Partner Samuel Cahn said they see the digital currency as “an exciting payment technology.”

The new hedge fund which has been launched, can do buying and holding of bitcoins for clients. This is the first fund to hold the digital currency in “an institutional grade hedge fund using the same types of checks and balances that investors have come to expect,” according to Cahn. A family office is seeding the new hedge fund, which Cahn founded with his brothers Drew and Sigmund Sommer.

Cahn is an attorney who also has worked at the White Bay Group, serving in both an investment management advisory role and as counsel for the firm. He managed Combinations Capital Partners as well. Sigmund Sommer has been investing in, trading and mining bitcoin for years.

Cahn described their strategy for buying and holding the crypto-currency. He said it’s based on supply and demand. Since there will only ever be a certain amount of bitcoins in existence, the price of the digital currency will rise along with demand.

According to Cahn, the market is “really on the cusp of consumer adoption.” He noted that online retailer Overstock.com decided to start accepting bitcoin as payment starting this year. Also the Federal Election Commission ruled that the digital currency is an acceptable type of currency in which to make contributions to political campaigns.
