Invictus Capital’s offering includes 7 diverse and unique investment funds that range within the field of alternative investments. All funds offered are tokenized, with no minimum investments, making them easily accessible to all investors, while simultaneously democratizing the world of finance and allowing exposure to cryptocurrency investments, hedged investments, gold, dollar-based interest through margin lending, and solar infrastructure in emerging markets.
As investors intrinsically have different needs, the following funds are introduced, allowing for investor diversification.
The funds on offer:
– Crypto20 (C20): the first Invictus fund and first tokenized crypto index fund worldwide. C20 tracks the top 20 cryptocurrencies in the market, investing in the various funds by market capitalization, with holdings being capped at 10% and rebalanced weekly. This fund excludes stablecoins.
– Crypto10 Hedged (C10): a derivation of the C20 fund, that allows for a cash allocation ranging from 0-100% to hedge against cryptocurrency volatility. The crypto index fund aims to ride the bull market waves, while also limiting the drawdown risk. The fund holds the top 10 cryptocurrencies weighted by market capitalization, excluding stablecoins, withholdings capped at 15%
– Bitcoin Alpha (IBA): This fund allows investors 1x exposure to Bitcoin and is designed to outperform a buy-and-hold strategy over the longer term, through the use of an options strategy. Monthly, this fund purchases insurance in the form of put options that aim to limit the downside risk to around 10%. This insurance cost is covered by the sale of call options that cap upside to the region of 30%.
– Hyperion (IHF): This fund invests in early-stage blockchain startups, allowing investors to access a portfolio of exciting companies utilizing blockchain technology. The fund foregoes high barriers to entry as it uses a tokenized structure, allowing almost infinite divisibility of the funds’ value.
– Margin Lending (IML): this fund aims to maximize the interest income on USD and USD equivalents with zero anticipated drawdown risk. The fund generates a return by providing secured loans to traders looking to open leveraged positions. The collateralized nature of the loans means there is near-zero risk involved.
– Emerging Markets Solar (EMS): This fund aims to generate stable and consistent returns for investors over the long term, while investing in solar energy projects based in emerging markets and developing communities, creating a positive social and environmental impact.
– Gold Plus (IGP): This fund allows investors a cost-efficient, secure way to have exposure to the gold market, allowing a strategic asset allocation of up to 10% interest bearing cash. The fund aims to outperform gold through margin lending activities on the underlying assets, along with taking advantage of arbitrage opportunities between markets.
Constructing your perfect portfolio comprises different factors, one being diversification. There is significant value in spreading your risk across various assets to avoid concentrated exposure. Diversification is arguably the most important factor and is achieved by adding uncorrelated assets to a portfolio.
Another important factor relating to your portfolio, is the risk-return appetite of the investors, by addressing their risk tolerance and risk capacity. If a high risk/return profile investment is made, it should be accompanied by discipline to let the investment time run its full course, even in the face of adverse performance.
Determining which investor category you are in, high, medium, or low risk, is critical to decide further which Invictus funds would most suit your investor profile. The more you allocate to crypto investments and venture capital, the less towards stable income such as IML and safe- haven assets such as gold. Due to the nature of blockchain and the structural liquidity, the Invictus Capital products pose no material concern, allowing for no lock-up periods and 24/7 liquidity for investors to enter or exit the funds.
Within the crypto investment class, there are currently three different funds offered, Crypto20, Crypto10 Hedged, and Bitcoin Alpha. When navigating these funds, one needs to pay attention to the investors’ time horizon, liquidity needs, and risk tolerance.
When referring to time, C20 has the greatest return over long periods and is less suitable for short-term investments due to its drawdown events. Bitcoin Alpha is better for shorter periods as it provides drawdown protection. However, C10 remains the best choice for short term investments, due to the funds’ cash hedging algorithm.

For Big Investors, the Recent Bitcoin Drop Presents More Buying Opportunities
Bitcoin has fallen deeply into a state of oblivion. Once trading for well over $64,000, the world’s number one digital currency by market cap has lost nearly $20,000 in value since last month and is presently trading for just over $47,000.
Bitcoin Is Still Being Bought Up
Among many analysts is an attitude of gloom and doom. Some consider the end of bitcoin to be near, while other largescale investors – such as Michael Saylor of MicroStrategy fame – think that this is the perfect opportunity to add more bitcoin to their private and company stashes and buy up.
Saylor has recently come out and admitted that not long after Elon Musk announced his company would not be accepting BTC payments for goods and services, his company purchased another $15 million worth of the digital asset. The recent dip can likely be attributed to Musk’s sudden dismissal of BTC payments, which a lot of people in the crypto space were relying on.
This was going to be a major push forward in the world of BTC. It would be seen as a legitimate and mainstream method of payment considering such a huge, billion-dollar company would allow its usage alongside fiat and credit cards.
Sadly, it does not look like this is going to pass, and bitcoin has suffered as a result, but for people like Saylor, the present conditions offer more opportunities to take advantage of. In a tweet, Saylor announced his company’s recent purchase:
MicroStrategy has purchased an additional 271 bitcoins for $15 million in cash at an average price of about $55,387 per bitcoin.
Thus far, the company has accumulated nearly $2.5 billion in BTC over the past nine months according to a filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). MicroStrategy was one of the first major institutions to pledge public support to bitcoin and initially began buying the asset in August of last year.
While Saylor looks at the recent situation as something positive for men like himself, others are expressing disdain with Elon Musk and the fact that he is constantly saying things that have large effects on bitcoin and its competing altcoin cousins.
Maybe It’s Time to Think Before You Talk
Dennis Kelleher – CEO of Better Markets in Washington – explained to reporters:
The problem here is that a loose cannon CEO continues to shoot his mouth off about any number of potential market-moving events. It is clearly grossly irresponsible, but it may not be illegal.
For the most part, there is no evidence supporting the idea that Musk does what he does or says what he says on purpose. It could be that he just simply does not realize his power within the industry yet. However, perhaps it is time he takes a breather and really thinks about his next steps regarding crypto, as it clearly has an effect on the rest of us.
Litecoin Price Prediction: LTC/USD Goes Bearish on a Correctional Note
LTC Price Prediction – May 17
Currently, a downward correctional move is ongoing at a higher pressure in the LTC/USD market activities. The US currency forces its worth on the crypto since May 10 while the base instrument hit resistance around a high value of $400. With about a 10.07% reduction presently in the crypto market, price now trades at around the level of $266.
Resistance levels: $320, $360, $400
Support levels: $240, $220, $200
LTC/USD – Daily Chart
The LTC/USD daily chart showcases a heavy downward price correctional movement as most of the vital support trading levels breached to the downside. An intense bearish candlestick is being formed in the space between the SMAs. That has led to the breaking down of the bullish trend-line and the 14-day SMA trend-line to the south. The 50-day SMA indicator is being approached by current falling pressure at the immediate support value of $240. The Stochastic Oscillators are now in the oversold region slightly pointing to the south within it. That still calls for placing position with cautiousness as there may soon be a change of trend in no time.
Will the LTC/USD current fall-off reach for support of $240?
Going by the current pace at which the LTC/USD market operations as regards the downward correctional moves, it is most likely that bulls will await price to either closely average or briefly touch past the immediate support level of $240 before considering launching a pull-up. That said, a bullish candlestick formation is needed to back up a reliable return of an upward move at that trading zone.
On the account of contradiction, as regards the market’s upside, bears would now have to consolidate their stance in the market to forcefully break down the $240 support level in a continuation southward pushes to see through some lower support trading lines. The smaller SMA indicator may not play along with the furtherance of downswing at the first instance of heightening pressure.
LTC/BTC Price Analysis
As of writing, the comparison trading capacity outlook between LTC and BTC as shown on the chart depicts that the counter instrument has only been able to hold back the base tool in a convergent trading cycle at higher zones. Yet, the trend is having it to favor of LTC as placed with BTC. The 14-day SMA trend-line and the bullish trend-line are over the 50-day SMA. And, they are all underneath the cryptos’ trading point. The Stochastic Oscillators have slantingly moved into the oversold region with a brief-pointing posture to the south. That indicates that the possibility that the base instrument may soon begin a push further to the north.
Iranian government to penalize crypto miners using household power
The Iranian government has now warned of hefty fines for those who will be caught mining cryptocurrencies using power intended for domestic use.
This after authorities registered a significant spike in electricity consumption for digital currency mining, further straining the already stressed hydropower generation caused by insufficient rainfall in the country this year.
The government said the illegal mining operations for virtual currencies that rely on electricity intended for households cause transformers to be overloaded, damaging the power grid. According to Tehran Times, Iranian Ministry of Energy spokesperson Mostafa Rajabi Mashhadi said unauthorized miners “will be fined when identified and held responsible for the damages they cause to the electricity network.”
Mining rapidly expanding in Iran
Back in 2019, the Iranian government legalized cryptocurrency mining, classifying it as an industrial activity.
In 2020, over 1,000 mining licenses were issued by the Ministry of Industry, Mining, and Trade, and power companies were provided with an avenue to increase their profits through meeting the industry’s power demands.
Selling electricity to cryptocurrency miners was seen as an option to fill the gap between revenues and expenditures in the electricity industry. However, with the current energy crisis being faced by the country, this move is now also being questioned.
Power consumption through the roof
Per the latest available data, the cryptocurrency mining sector in Iran consumes up to 1,500 megawatts of electricity each day. Back in December, this figure only sat at 300 megawatts. Authorities revealed that only around 200 megawatts of the current average daily consumption are legal.
Chinese companies have taken advantage of low and subsidized electricity prices in Iran to establish mining operations in the country’s Special Economic Zones.
The Ministry of Industry, Mines, and Trade estimates around $660 million worth of cryptocurrency is mined annually by unlicensed facilities in Iran.
