Tokens for the two funds have been created using the Ethereum blockchain platform using its ERC 20 technical standard for smart contracts.

The firm added that the two funds, which would cover over 20 top cryptocurrencies between them, had all the features of traditional funds such as the use of real-time market data, performance calculations to track investments and advanced financial reporting, as well as new features including clustered storage with multiple signatures to guarantee asset safety and automated rebalancing and smart execution systems.
