Columbus Capital will manage three funds at the beginning – Blockchain Index (BLX), the ICO-focused Pinta (CCP), a closed, high performance digital asset fund, and the lower risk Blockchain.ONE, which soon will be listed on traditional, internationally regulated exchanges. All three were the first digital asset arrays (DAA) built on ECONOMY software.
ICONOMI cofounder Jani Valjavec and European fund manager Igor Erker will lead Columbus Capital.
“We are managing one of the world’s most exciting funds: the Columbus Capital Pinta, previously known as ICNP, which invests exclusively in the highest potential token sales,” Mr. Erker said. “Our extraordinary team has unrivaled knowledge of the cryptocurrency industry. With our proprietary due diligence processes, we will focus on highly profitable investment opportunities while obtaining access to the best possible deals.
“With Blockchain Index, previously known as ICNX, we have created a best-in-breed onramp for all investors to invest in the entire blockchain industry ― today the fastest growing sector in the world.”
Senior Advisor to Columbus Capital Jani Valjavec said, “ICONOMI has developed the world’s leading software platform to manage and form digital asset arrays,” Mr. Valjavec said. “We are forming what we believe will be the foundational element of the new economy. Eventually dozens or even hundreds of DAAs will operate on the ICONOMI platform.
“To maintain our focus on developing this critical platform, ICONOMI has spun out our two pre-announced DAAs, INCP and ICNX, to the capable and highly experienced management team at Columbus Capital. As a result, Columbus Capital will be ICONOMI’s first official third-party customer. We have seen increased investor demand for the investment alternatives, and we believe this is an opportune time to present this new vehicle.”
