We are a group of portfolio managers, quantitative researchers and senior IT engineers with varied backgrounds. Most of us hold advanced degrees in quantitative disciplines. We see abundant investment opportunities in the highly volatile yet rapidly growing crypto markets, and decide to set up a semi-decentralized crypto ecosystem intended for the benefit of the most.
