“We are pleased to report a strong quarter for the BCAP, which was highlighted by successful realizations of our positions in Block.one, ZeroX and Power Ledger. These exits returned over +50x, +25x and +15x respectively,” said Brad Stephens, Managing Partner of Blockchain Capital.
“Looking ahead, the BCAP portfolio is well positioned to execute against its diversified investment strategy,” Stephens continued. “We believe we have constructed a portfolio that balances holding the equity of the leading venture-backed companies with strong operating fundamentals, while also investing in the leading token offerings. We are extremely excited about our portfolio of investments.”
The BCAP is mid-way through its upgrade process which began this past quarter. We expect that certain security token-capable secondary trading platforms will be able to list the upgraded BCAP within the coming weeks. Additionally, we believe that at least one qualified custodian will be able to provide custody for the BCAP shortly into the fourth quarter.
