Cryptocurrency and Blockchain Investments

The interest for cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology has been increasing during the last months.

The intention is to invest in companies that are starting or an in an early stage of development.

This kind of investment, if well analysed, may have the potential to substantially increase the capital invested. If all these companies that are just starting evolve into something more important, the ROI can be very high. There is a possibility that these companies will not last long, making of this, a risky investment.

Some enterprises in which this company is investing at the moment are Coinbase, Instacart, and Soylent. Other investments are focused in blockchain and cryptocurrency companies. In just six years, Initialized Capital has gone from $250 million dollars to $20 billion.
