Introducing Arkenstone Capital- A Leader in DeFi Index Funds

We are a group of software developers, finance professionals, DeFi experts, and legal scholars focused on the convergence of value-investing principles and crypto-investing.

Created in 2021, The Arkenstone DeFi Index Fund is designed to provide investors with exposure to the entire cryptocurrency market, including small, mid, and large-cap growth and value positions. The fund’s key attributes are its low costs, broad diversification, and the potential for tax efficiency.

Investors looking for a low-cost way to gain broad exposure to the cryptocurrency market, and who are willing to accept the volatility that comes with this nascent, yet innovative, market investing may wish to consider this fund as either a core investment position or as part of your exposure to the crypto market.

The Opportunity in Decentralized Finance

As Fabian Schär, leading researcher for the St Louis Fed found in his publication: “DeFi may potentially contribute to a more robust and transparent financial infrastructure”. The leadership at Arkenstone Capital wholeheartedly agrees with these statements.

DeFi is still a niche market with low volumes, but these figures are rapidly growing. The total amount of funds locked in DeFi-related smart contracts recently surpassed $10 billion USD. The technology presents exciting opportunities and the ability to build fully accessible, transparent, and immutable financial system. Since DeFi is made up of various highly interoperable protocols and frameworks, anyone can verify all transactions, and data is easily accessible for users and researchers to analyze.

ETFs and index items are the most frequently traded products, and firms like BlackRock ($7.4 trillion) and Vanguard ($6.2 trillion) are the world’s biggest fund managers. We believe that Arkenstone, as a first mover, has a strong opportunity to expand and scale into a leading provider of crypto index funds.
