What is Blockweather?
Blockweather is a digital currency (cryptocurrency) hedge fund that invests in and trades bitcoin, alternative coins, distributed applications, and occasional, well vetted Initial Coin Offerings (ICOs). Blockweather's Chief Investment Officer, Marc Orenstein, MBA, has an extensive Wall Street career as a trader and hedge fund manager with companies including J.P.Morgan.
Why invest with Blockweather?
There is rapid development in blockchain technologies in many sectors (finance, healthcare, banking, commerce, real estate, and entertainment). This is analagous to the Internet boom in the early 1990s. This rapid growth has led institutions and governments to invest billions of dollars. Increasing demand for new technologies has led to increasing prices and value for many cryptocurrencies. Many consider it reasonable to diversify their portfolios and invest in this growing industry, as there are opportunities for profit.
It takes thousands of hours per year to monitor cryptocurrency markets, analyze charts, research technologies, communicate with developers, execute trades, and monitor positions. Investors choose to have our team of experts do this work for them by investing in our fund, with a goal that our team may achieve superior results than could be achieved by investing independently. After investing, there is minimal time required on your part.
We engaged a world-class custodian - Kingdom Trust - to ensure that your assets remain secure. We also employ additional security measures, some of which are described here. All electronic communications and financial transactions are secure and encrypted. Blockweather has never experienced any breaches in security.
