Here we touch upon blockchain industry and trends.
In 2016 we reached out to traditional venture investors with an offer to work with our portfolio of crypto projects. They said that would be self-destructive, or to put it bluntly, suicidal. Despite those predictions, we have been seeing double digits multipliers and continue enjoying high ROI.
As the market matured, SCDE Ventures grew with it and transformed into the asset management service and data intelligence platform leveraging the portfolio of dozens of altcoins.
At SCDE Ventures, we seek long-term value projects such as blockchain-based protocols and applications, and startups with inherent blockchain usage and trustworthy tokenomics.
All companies are evaluated against the framework created to test tokens and business models performance in real life.
We do not merely invest in tokens. We invest in technology and business models. We mentor and provide support by leveraging our extensive network of partners’ proprietary relationships to help founders navigate the challenges of building a business.
We manage our own portfolio to hedge risks of the «hold» strategy (BTC, ETH, EOS) with derivatives (short positions, futures, swap and options contracts), as well as the portfolio of actively traded coins following the evolvement of blockchain dynamic industry.
We back projects that fall under a certain criteria - up to 20 alt coins on their way to the market cap top.
At SCDE Ventures, we created SCDE Index to improve our approach and rebalance the proprietary portfolio. Index constituents are carefully vetted and fully diversified across different categories of digital assets (mediums of exchange, stores of value, smart contract protocols, etc.) and different sectors of the crypto economy.
One of the divisions of SCDE Ventures is the R&D laboratory with the focus on tools that helps us make the right ﬁnancial decisions and enhance our performance on the public crypto market.
The lack of suitable solutions for data collection prompted us to store all the market numbers on our servers. That temporary tool grew into what we call now the Data Warehouse. We have created data cluster for collecting, recording and long-term storage of the real-time crypto markets data which at the moment includes between 65 to 80 percent of all crypto-exchanges.
We also record all Bitcoin and Ethereum blockchain events to make this essential data available in just a snap and to give us freedom in choosing analytical samples without intermediaries.
For the needs of our trading algorithms, it is equally important to track and instantly interpret the movements of tokens between wallets via custom analytical samples. It gives us the ability to look extensively at the financial markets keeping note of all processes, from high-frequency trading to arbitrage. Readily available data is the essential need.
Machine learning technologies are used widely, starting with image recognition and computer vision, and finishing with playing “Go”. We keep up with current trends and following this latest fad, we have built our predictive mathematical models by analyzing raw data of exchanges and fluctuations in stock markets and the media.
SCDE Ventures supports and encourages the development of algo-trading robots. We offer our investors products based on proven growth prediction models for a portfolio of certain volatile instruments. Already at the stage of pilot testing, the alpha version of our system brought us first fruitful results by constructing an algorithmic model of reliable prediction of the growth or fall of the rate of few volatile instruments.
We provide access to the proprietary data sets for all crypto professionals. Data is a tool. The greater the access to the tools, the greater the benefits for all players on the cryptomarket.
Our ﬁnancial and tech analysts produce comprehensive market reports alongside with detailed project reviews that help us select the most talented people running promising startups to fund.
Our approach to combine manually gathered data and data-driven analytics serves as the basis for leveraging up-to-date information to immediately respond to the market shifts.
