Crypto Asset Fund (CAF) is an open-end private fund launched in July 2017 with an objective to preserving capital while also generating capital appreciation for U.S. and non-U.S. high-net-worth individuals and institutional investors.* This objective is pursued through the implementation of a proprietary algorithmic (systematic) investment strategy in the Fund’s A class of shares.
Class A (Algorithmic): Class A actively trades digital assets seeking to maximize capital appreciation, with a secondary emphasis on capital preservation. Class A is denominated in US Dollars (“USD”). The algorithm’s attributes are inspired by the well-established CTA’s of the world, utilizing proprietary parameters and filters. It is a back-tested (which includes a lengthy walk-forward analysis), long and short approach designed to outperform its benchmarks by providing downside protection while exploiting momentum. The foundation of the algorithm is based on trend-following techniques, which investors and allocators have often implemented for decades, in order to provide diversification, generate alpha and improve the risk-adjusted returns of a portfolio. Extensive detail on strategy and back-testing is available upon request.
* Crypto Asset Fund, LLC (CAF) generally offers monthly subscription and redemption opportunities and is managed by Digital Capital Management, LLC. CAF accepts investments from US and non-US investors accredited investors.

IMPORTANT RISK DISCLOSURES
THERE IS NO GUARANTEE THAT ANY INVESTMENT WILL ACHIEVE ITS OBJECTIVES, GENERATE PROFITS OR AVOID LOSSES, AND PAST PERFORMANCE IS NOT NECESSARILY INDICATIVE OF FUTURE RESULTS. INVESTMENTS IN CRYPTOCURRENCIES OR FUNDS PURSUING INVESTMENTS IN CRYPTOCURRENCIES AND RELATED ASSETS (“DIGITAL ASSETS”) ARE VERY SPECULATIVE AND CAN INVOLVE A HIGH DEGREE OF RISK. INVESTORS MUST HAVE THE FINANCIAL ABILITY, SOPHISTICATION, EXPERIENCE AND WILLINGNESS TO BEAR THE RISKS INHERENT WITH DIGITAL ASSETS, AND THE ABILITY TO WEATHER A POTENTIAL TOTAL LOSS OF THEIR INVESTMENT. DIGITAL ASSETS ARE NOT SUITABLE OR DESIRABLE INVESTMENTS FOR ALL INVESTORS.
THIS FUND OVERVIEW PAGE DOES NOT CONSTITUTE AN OFFER TO SELL OR A SOLICITATION OF AN OFFER TO BUY, NOR WILL THERE BE ANY OFFER, SOLICITATION OR SALE OF THE INTERESTS, IN ANY JURISDICTION IN WHICH SUCH OFFER, SOLICITATION OR SALE IS NOT AUTHORIZED OR TO ANY PERSON TO WHOM IT IS UNLAWFUL TO MAKE ANY SUCH OFFER, SOLICITATION OR SALE. NO OFFER TO SELL OR A SOLICITATION OF AN OFFER TO BUY WILL BE MADE WITHOUT DELIVERY OF A CURRENT CONFIDENTIAL PRIVATE PLACEMENT MEMORANDUM.
DIGITAL ASSETS RISK. The regulation of Digital Assets varies among countries, ranging from outright bans, to moderate or full regulation, to no regulation at all, and the global regulatory landscape for Digital Assets is in constant flux. Exchanges that trade Digital Assets have failed in the recent past, resulting in the complete loss of customer assets. Digital Assets are created, issued and transmitted according to protocols run by computers in digital networks, distributed ledger systems, blockchain ecosystems and similar technologies, all of which are subject to potential programming flaws, hidden errors, fraud and cyber-attacks.
LIMITED LIQUIDITY. Withdrawals are permitted on only a monthly basis, subject to an advance written notice requirement, and may be suspended or only partially available. There is no secondary market for, or exchange trading of, fund interests, and they are non-transferable. These limitations may result in a potentially lengthy period before an investor is able to entirely withdraw interests, during which time the investor remains subject to all associated risks, including the risk of losing capital. Withdrawal proceeds may also be subject to reserves for contingent liabilities or be limited or delayed for other reasons.
MANAGER RISK. The fund has a limited operations history and success is dependent upon the ability of DCM as manager of the fund to identify profitable investment opportunities, which is difficult, requires skill, and involves a significant degree of uncertainty. DCM has wide discretion to select strategies and investments without the approval of investors. Banks, exchanges and other financial intermediaries selected by DCM to trade for or provide services to the fund may encounter financial difficulties which could negatively impact the fund. There also exists the possibility of loss due to deviation from disclosed investment strategies, or simply poor judgment by the manager, or fraud by sponsors or promoters of Digital Assets or other fund investments.
LACK OF DIVERSIFICATION. The fund has no established guidelines as to the diversification of its investment portfolio and it may from time to time be concentrated in a single or small number of Digital Assets or sectors within the market for Digital Assets.
SUBSTANTIAL FEES AND EXPENSES. The fund is subject to substantial fees and expenses, which will reduce profitability and your returns, and include applicable management and incentive fees charged to each investor’s account with the fund. Performance-based incentive fees create an incentive for the manager to engage in riskier trading than it might otherwise pursue in the absence of an incentive fee. Each investor also pays a pro rata portion of the fund’s operating expenses, including expenses associated with formation, operations, legal, accounting, auditing, administration, clerical, marketing and the continuous offering of fund interests, and any extraordinary expenses.
GLOBAL INVESTMENT RISK. The fund invests and trades across global markets with varying levels of regulation and investor protections. This presents risks not typically associated with funds that trade principally within a single jurisdiction, which may include adverse fluctuations in currency exchange rates, adverse political and social developments, less liquidity or greater volatility in certain markets, less developed or less efficient trading in certain markets, political instability and different auditing, legal and default or bankruptcy standards across global markets.
LEVERAGE. The fund may be exposed to leverage through direct borrowing, or indirectly using derivatives such as options or swaps that have inherent or imbedded leverage. This will cause the fund to incur additional expenses, will magnify the fund’s potential gains or losses, and in turn increase the volatility of fund returns.
COUNTERPARY AND CREDIT RISK. Investments by the fund in fixed income or debt instruments, or engagement in Digital Assets lending, expose it to credit risk, meaning the risk that issuers or counterparties to the fund’s investments or loans may default on obligations to the fund and cause potential losses. Any exposures to swaps or other derivatives, directly or indirectly, involve risks including leverage risk and counterparty default risk in the case of over the counter derivatives. Option positions held may expire worthless, exposing the fund to potentially significant losses.
ABSENCE OF U.S. REGULATION. Interests in the fund are neither registered with the SEC nor with any State regulator, and the fund itself is not subject to SEC regulation as an investment company. Therefore, an investment in the Fund is not subject to the same registration and disclosure requirements and does not benefit from the same investor protection regulations, as are applicable to US mutual funds. The SEC has not passed upon the merits of or approved the interests in the fund, the terms of the offering of interests, or the accuracy of this presentation.
TAX COMPLEXITY AND REPORTING DELAYS. The fund’s tax structure is complex, and investors should expect delays in receiving annual tax information and reports from the fund. Investors may be required to seek extensions of their deadline for filing annual income tax returns.
