Analysis of Crypto Funds by Inception & Strategy and Estimated AUM


Autonomous NEXT has kept a running tally on the number of crypto funds within the space, as well as their respective estimated assets under management.  Our findings indicate that over 300 funds currently exist, most of which started in 2017 and 2018, with a variety of strategies including Venture, Trading, Quant & Artificial Intelligence, Fund of Funds, Indexes, Token Baskets, Credit and Ecosystem Funds; with the majority (56%) of total AUM controlled by liquid venture funds. The inception of 61 funds in the first half of 2018 means barriers to entry such as market volatility and significant start-up costs do not pose as significant deterrents to new entrants seeking exposure into the crypto space.
