What is Protos?

The crypto markets are rapidly accelerating. There are new tokens every day, aggressive professional traders and bots make trading competitive. Properly securing a portfolio of 30+ tokens is hard.

What if you have a full-time team of proven crypto investors and technologists to grow your Blockchain investments?

Protos is an investment fund that will be run by veteran blockchain investors and technologists who have founded investment vehicles with combined assets of over 1 Billion dollars and invested in 3 out of 5 of the highest market cap blockchain protocols in their earliest days.

Protos will be capitalized solely by proceeds raised in an ICO. You trade USD, BTC or ETH for the PRTS Token. An experienced team then trades established tokens and invests in new ones.

Unlike index funds that passively track tokens, pure venture capital style funds that only invest their funds in seed stage protocols, or traditional hedge funds with minimum investments and lock up periods, Protos has what we believe to be three distinguishing attributes.

  • Connector.

    The Protos portfolio performance is expected to be available in real time - meaning transparency.

  • Connector.

    PRTS is a token – meaning increased access to your money with few limitations.

  • Connector.

    Protos plans to actively manage a portfolio of both new and established tokens. Protos plans to invest in:

New, seed stage, blockchain protocols.

Active trading strategies to generate returns from, for example, massive price fluctuations and opportunities to provide liquidity (trend following, leverage, arbitrage, algorithmic trading using large aggregated data sets).

35% of the Protos funds will go to what we believe will be promising new protocol investments.

65% of the Protos fund will be actively managed.

The Protos team consists of established investors, traders, technology entrepreneurs and advisors.

The team has deep knowledge of cryptocurrency technology, tooling, and markets. The principal team will actively manage the funds available for investment into blockchain protocols as well as deploy their proprietary active trading strategies. Additionally, their advisors will serve as a resource for the Protos principals to engage in involved discussion and advice regarding their investment strategies, criteria and sourcing.
