Cryptology Asset Group Commits USD 100 Million to Invest Globally in Crypto-related Venture Funds

Share

Cryptology Asset Group (ISIN: MT0001770107; Ticker: CAP:GR), a leading European investment company for blockchain- and crypto-related businesses founded by Christian Angermayer and Mike Novogratz, intends to invest USD 100 million over the next 24 months into crypto-related venture funds.

Cryptology will take an entrepreneurial approach in building its fund portfolio and will focus on first time funds and emerging managers, globally, including seeding funds and taking stakes in GPs as well.

Christian Angermayer, Founder of Cryptology, explains: "We are at the very beginning of the crypto revolution, and we strive to become one of the leading global investors in this very nascent asset class. Our fund investment strategy will focus on emerging talent, taking a global approach, and will encompass both funds investing in equity stakes of crypto- and blockchain related companies as well as funds investing in crypto assets and tokens."

Patrick Lowry, CEO of Cryptology, adds: "There is no better asset class to bet on than crypto, in my opinion. Within just three years, Cryptology has grown invested capital of approx. EUR 27 million into an NAV of approx. EUR 450 million, as of June 1, 2021. This results in an estimated IRR of more than 300% per year, which is an impressive testimony to the tectonic shift we are seeing in front of our very eyes. We will work hard to continue this success story in the coming years and decades.

Patrick further elaborates: "With regards to our fund investment strategy, our vision is to collaborate closely with our portfolio funds, offering them access to our broad network and experience, as well as to co-invest alongside them into innovative blockchain companies and crypto assets."

Cryptology is one of the few stock-market listed investment companies exclusively focusing on crypto and blockchain related businesses, trading on multiple German exchanges under the ticker symbol CAP:GR and ISIN MT0001770107.

Cryptology offers retail and institutional investors unparalleled and easy access, via its daily liquid shares, to an exclusive asset class that is otherwise reserved for a small group of investors, given that most companies and funds in the crypto sector are still private. For example, Cryptology offers indirect participation in iconic crypto giant Block.one, the publishers of EOSIO, and their newly announced exchange, BULLISH.

Cryptology's fund investment strategy will strengthen its position as the leading access stock to a global, diversified crypto portfolio.

The EUROGLIDER Autonomous Electric Glider Project Takes Off16.6.2021 12:22:00 EEST | Press release

The result of an innovative partnership involving the European Association for the Development of Gliding (AEDEVV), Dassault Aviation and the engineering schools of the ISAE Group, the EUROGLIDER project aims to develop an electrically powered two-seater glider for training, release and practice. At the crossroads of several technological challenges, the project is currently in the experimental test phase and will shortly begin preparations for its industrial phase. The ambition of this glider is to be able to carry out complete instructional flights autonomously without having to wait for favorable aerological conditions and while preserving the environment. The EUROGLIDER project attempts to satisfy the requests of the European gliding training centers. Because of a long waiting period, nearly 2/3 of the new registrants give up before their first "solo" flight. Thanks to its electric propulsion, the EUROGLIDER will be able to link several training flights of more than 40 minutes in a
