Cryptocurrency hedge funds are investment funds which pool capital from investors into a group of assets focusing entirely, or partially, on cryptocurrencies or other decentralized digital assets. Funds are actively managed by experts, or insider investors, who charge a fee for analyzesthe analysis and selection of investment opportunities. A wide variety of both manual and automated strategies exist for diversifying and allocating funds; including restricting to high value market cap, hand picking specific assets, and much more. Investors following these strategies typically seek to reduce risk exposure to volatility in the value of any specific cryptocurrency on the market. In addition to hedge funds specializing exclusively in cryptocurrency assets, traditional hedge funds have increased their exposure to cryptocurrency assets.
