The AMBCrypto reporting team held an interview with Daniel Schwartzkoff, CEO of Invictus Capital on the Hyperion Fund’s most recent investments. The Hyperion Fund is Invictus Capital’s second fund and is set to follow the success of their first fund, CRYPTO20.
Here are the interview details:
Can you provide us with a brief description on the Hyperion Fund and the results of your public sale?
The Hyperion Fund ICO came to a close on 30 May with over 4500 backers and $11 million raised.
The Hyperion Fund functions as a syndicated venture capital fund that provides independent investors access to the earliest stages of investing in blockchain projects. Through the IHF token, investors gain diversified exposure to a portfolio of expertly-vetted investments in private and public pre-sales, and ICOs. Independent investors now have the opportunity to invest in projects across the globe that historically was only available to wealthy accredited investors and first-world venture capitalists.
Many projects in their earliest stages are not public or available to individual investors, yet the most significant gain in value is to be had there. As regulation changes, ICO projects are moving towards raising the majority of their funds in private sales – making them inaccessible for individuals. Hyperion will provide access to these ICOs and the substantial discounts typically given to early-stage investors with significant contributions.
The mandate of the Invictus Hyperion Fund is to invest in the best pre-sales and ICOs, identifying them through the dedicated efforts of highly skilled analysts, and leverage of our machine learning solutions and the extensive connections of our network.
The Hyperion Fund has already made the following investments: NOIA Network, DAV Network, Lightstreams, and Gamedex.
Tell us more about the NOIA Network?
NOIA is a decentralized CDN that utilizes unused bandwidth and storage from idle computers around the world. The Project uses the internet’s infrastructure to improve how data is delivered dramatically. NOIA enables hundreds of thousands of computers to serve as potential points of presence (POPs) for web content caching and delivery through local networks around the world. This solution is much cheaper than what current centralized CDN providers offer.
DAV Network looks to revolutionize the transportation industry. Tell us about the project?
DAV Network is a culmination of several significant trends in the sharing economy and fulfillment for on-demand services and driverless vehicles. DAV will make it possible to offer a complete autonomous transportation network without having to invest in every single branch of technology. DAV provides the opportunity for any actor to purchase or sell transportation services by participating in a decentralized market. This will disintermediate the industry and make transport more affordable for users.
Lightstreams is an exciting and ambitious project, could you give us a high-level overview?
Lightstreams technology provides convincing solutions to the problems preventing mainstream blockchain adoption, it also aims to provide businesses and DApps with enhanced privacy controls and faster transactions. Lightstreams boasts of a performance-driven, robust and diversely experienced team. Michael Smolenski, the CEO, an ex Goldman Sachs software Engineer, has a successful record of contributing to several Blockchain projects.
What is unique about Gamedex?
Gamedex believes that ecosystems which rely on a community to function should belong to the community they are built on. The gaming industry reached USD 110 billion in 2017 and has been projected to continue growing with a compound annual growth rate of 6.2%. Gamedex is a unique project that aims to tap into this huge and growing industry by focusing on the community.
What is the roadmap for the Invictus Hyperion Fund moving forward?
The Invictus Hyperion Fund token (IHF) will be listed on exchanges alongside other Invictus products such as CRYPTO20. The Fund will also continue to discover, research new blockchain projects, and invest in the best upcoming projects. Returns will be cycled back into the fund to grow it until we reach the first milestone, which is the distribution of profit through our buy-and-burn process.
