Kenetic bucks Crypto Market Trend with 77% YTD Portfolio Return



Partnering with VS Asia to offer Pro Investors access to Crypto Funds


HONG KONG, Nov 16, 2018 - (Media OutReach) - Kenetic, a blockchain investment and advisory firm based in Hong Kong, affirmed that its proprietary investment portfolio recorded year-to-date returns of 77% as of October 31, against a backdrop of major losses in the cryptocurrency markets; Bitcoin has fallen over 50 percent in 2018 and the overall crypto market is down around 65%.

Kenetic's proprietary investment portfolio is comprised of its best ideas that have undergone thorough due diligence by its experienced investment team. Its alpha-generating strategies are largely focused on early stage investments, catalyst driven events and macro themes, complemented by prudent risk management and proprietary in-house trading tools.

"As active leaders in the global blockchain community, we see where the strongest investment opportunities lie and rising trends that are influencing traditional industries," said Daniel Weinberg, CEO of Kenetic.

Through this partnership, the two companies will work together to develop cryptocurrency investment funds for professional investors leveraging the respective expertise and resources of both entities. Distributed by VS Asia, the new funds will offer eligible investors the ability to diversify their portfolios with digital assets across different passive and active strategies.
