The Bitcoin Opportunity Fund, led by a group of six investors including managing partners James Lavish and David Foley, is aiming to raise $100 million for a Bitcoin-focused investment vehicle.
The fund will cater to high-net worth investors looking to diversify into the world's largest cryptocurrency, targeting both public and private Bitcoin-adjacent companies.
According to Cory Klippsten, one of the fund's partners and CEO of automated Bitcoin savings plans provider Swan Bitcoin, the recent collapse of several US banks highlights the need for Bitcoin, as it provides individuals with money they own and control.
Despite the challenges facing the industry, The Bitcoin Opportunity Fund sees ample opportunity for distressed investing. Lavish, formerly the COO of alternative investments at Luther King Capital Management, stated:
the fund is considering buying up debt belonging to publicly-listed Bitcoin miners that has been trading for pennies on the dollar.
Foley, who is a managing partner at investment firm Equity Management Associates, also sees potential in private companies that have seen their value plummet by 60% as they attempt to raise capital. These businesses present interesting opportunities during times of distress, according to Foley.
