Q1 Update on Arca

Rayne Steinberg
Apr 28, 2019
In the past four months, the crypto markets have rallied, institutional interest has picked up, and major players have entered the space along with an influx of top talent from finance, tech, and other industries. Arca has been equally active over the past four months, and I wanted to provide a quick update on our progress.
 
On the asset management side of the business, we continue to build out our portfolio team and fund operations. Since the start of 2019, we’ve added a new trader to our team, while also tightening and optimizing our investment process and risk management techniques. Additionally, we’ve partnered with leading service providers to build out the operational excellence that powers our asset management arm. To get more insight into how our CIO, Jeff Dorman, thinks about the market, read That’s Our Two Satoshis, a crypto market recap where he explains and analyzes what’s happening in the digital assets space.
 
On the product innovation side, the Arca US Treasury Coin (the first investment product to be launched on our regulated 40-act digital securities structure) is on track and being well received. We recently refiled our registration statement based on the last round of comments from the SEC. This filing was widely reported in the media, with CoinDesk’s article being most representative. We believe that this product will marry the best parts of regulation, namely investor protection, with the benefits of decentralized finance.
 
We have also ramped up our efforts to educate sophisticated investors on the digital assets space. We aim to become the go-to resource on digital assets by producing multi-channel, multi-format educational content. Along with our weekly newsletter, we recently hosted FO256, an educational event bringing together top minds in the digital assets space to educate institutional investors. We had 12 panels and 120 family offices attend. Videos of each panel can be found here.

Additionally, we understand this space is nascent and it’s often difficult to make sense of all the information out there. That’s why we’re holding our first Investor Q&A on May 3, where we will answer questions submitted by the audience. We aim to explain digital assets, blockchain technology, and any other questions using the terminology and familiar concepts that financial incumbents understand. Please join us on May 3.

Arca is on track and meeting or exceeding its goals. We are taking on a massive project and are still at the very early stages, but we are encouraged by the success. We are very appreciative of your support. I’ll close with the hopefully prophetically titled article from Alpha Week, which does a great job framing Arca and its asset management business. Arca: The BlackRock of Digital Assets.

We’re really excited for what’s ahead at Arca. Please feel free to reach out if you have any questions.

Best,
