BCMG Genesis Bitcoin Fund-I or popularly known as BGBF-I has officially launched in the Asian market. The Malaysian based fintech company claims to be the first insured institutional crypto product available in the entire Southeast Asian region.
According to the press release, the Bitcoin fund was launched in response to an increasing demand for institutional crypto products in the Southeast Asia region. The uniqueness of this crypto fund can be narrowed down to the fact that it leverages an AI powered blockchain platform delivered by Calfin Global Crypto Exchange, which aims to offer increased security for its customer holdings.
“BGBF-I is a secure, insured and regulated platform where investors can get exposure to the Digital Assets industry. Investors get to benefit from our expertise in the financial, technical, and security aspects of Bitcoin investments, as well as enter this class with a peace of mind without any challenges or risk in directly handling the Digital Asset.” says Fund Manager Subbu Vempati
According to its official website, the BGBF-I projects a minimum of 12% returns per year, in comparison to that of BTC which has gained 266.5% over the past 12 months.
This Week’s Market Sentiment
The Senate on Sunday passed the last stimulus check to pay eligible U.S citizens with $1400 payouts. However, President Joe Biden’s massive cash payout in relief funds only piles new debt to the country’s already huge mountain of debt. With these considered as recent events, it’s expected for the US Dollar to continue to take a nosedive.
As this year’s payout is greater than the last stimulus payout from the Trump administration of $1200, it is expected for some of this money to flow back into BTC given its exceedingly high return potentials in recent times.
According to the on-chain analysts, nearly 12,000 BTC left the professional trading platform Coinbase Pro as another wave of major BTC allocations at the current market prices. It was indeed a very nice coincidence as BTC took off past $54,000 soon after this event.
“That happened just before the recent surge in price. Nice coincidence,” tweeted quant analyst Lex Moskovski on this incident.
It’s definitely looking ‘For Bulls’ right now. Analysing the Binance orderbooks, shows that the next significant BTC/USDT resistances for the bulls stand at $58,000 — the current all-time high set few weeks back— and at $59,500.
Will we see another attempt at breaking the current ATH?
