In this article, I will be expanding upon our motivations and the salient design considerations in launching the C10 Hedged open-ended fund product.

C10 Hedged is not a direct upgrade of the C20 product and is intended to exist alongside it as a fully differentiated offering. C20 is a closed-ended fund and the maximum token supply is fixed existing investors often find it difficult to grow their stake in the fund as the number of participants willing to sell is limited.

As an open-ended fund C10 behaves quite differently:

Purchases and redemptions occur directly through Invictus Capitals investor portal or by direct interaction with the smart contract.

Exchanges are no longer required for liquidity on the buy or sell side

; C10 may be listed for convenience sake but we will not actively pursue listings. This protects investors from having to deal with unreliable exchanges and their listing and deposit/withdrawal fees.

Purchases and redemptions will use the NAV price; premiums and discounts will be avoided.

It is open-ended, there is no limit to how large the fund may grow but we reserve the right to limit the size of the fund should it start to face significant slippage concerns  for the top 10 assets this would only start to be a consideration when the fund has well over $100m in AUM.

We built on our experience through bull and bear markets to design the rule-based algorithm that sells out of, and buys into, crypto

preservation of capital is extremely important and this is an all-weather type product intended to manage downside risk for those who do not want to do it on their own.

It contains a cash hedge and downside risk is mitigated by the fund. Many traders prefer to own a naked fund like CRYPTO20 as they manage risk on their end  i.e. buying into and selling out of crypto on their own.

The weekly rebalance period allows the fund to be nimble  it would have been able to retain the vast majority of the fund value at the peak of the bull market. See the Litepaper for more detailed statistical info.

Margin lending is utilized to generate returns from idle assets, including the cash hedge. This is a common industry practice, particularly with index fund offerings. The aim is to exceed all fees with margin lending earnings and this is entirely possible based on the real-world tests we have conducted over the past few months. Earnings will be reported in the weekly rebalance updates.

The top 10 assets were chosen to future-proof the fund design against liquidity concerns as it is open-ended. Another salient consideration is that asset custodians and custody software have better support for the top 10 versus the assets in rank 1020.

The fund is rebalanced weekly with a 15% cap per asset to prevent any single asset or source of risk to dominate the fund.

The initial fund capitalization phase is now open  you can use your existing C20/Hyperion Invictus account details to sign in.

BTC/ETH/DASH will be accepted through the portal.

The sale of tokens has begun. As an open-ended fund, the sale will remain open indefinitely.

Tokens will be issued and redemption functionality enabled on May 1st.
