Is There Any "Hedge" In Your Cryptocurrency Hedge Fund?

There is a rush of hedge funds entering the Cryptocurrency space. According to the New York Times, more than 100 cryptocurrency hedge funds are now in existence, with most created within the last several months.  And no doubt more are on the way.

But those researching the new cryptocurrency hedge funds might be reminded of the old Wall Street sarcasm that “Hedge funds are a compensation scheme masquerading as an asset class.”

Like most hedge funds, the new cryptocurrency funds charge a management fee (typically 2% of assets under management ) in addition to an incentive fee, sometimes called a performance fee.
