The firm’s CEO Kevin Yang states:

“As the investment manager of the Trust, IDEG will apply a range of hedging and arbitrage strategies in order to gain more Bitcoin for the investors and meanwhile effectively control the risk of drawdowns.”

Asia Bitcoin Trust I, is an actively managed investment vehicle. It was being pitched by the firm as a contrast to Grayscale’s flagship Bitcoin Trust which has seen consistent year-on-year appreciation outstripping many traditional investments.
