A digital or virtual currency that uses cryptography for security.
A cryptocurrency is difficult to counterfeit because of this security feature.
A defining feature of a cryptocurrency is that it is not issued by any central authority, rendering it theoretically immune to government interference or manipulation. The anonymous nature of cryptocurrency transactions makes them well-suited for a host of nefarious activities such as money laundering and tax evasion. The first cryptocurrency to capture the public imagination was Bitcoin, which was launched in 2009. Bitcoin s success has spawned a number of competing cryptocurrencies such as Litecoin, Namecoin and PPCoin.

It employs a variety of strategies in trading crypto currencies to maximize return and minimize risk, including event-driven, arbitrage (timing, exchange, inter-crypto currency, etc.), cyclic and volatility.
As CCF and crypto currency markets evolve, the strategies will become more numerous, sophisticated and extensive, with shorts (currently possible and used by CCF, but with limited liquidity), swaps, derivatives, etc. Its initial focus is almost exclusively on bitcoin, but it periodically also invests in ”altcoins” (non-bitcoin crypto currencies) and will probably do so increasingly as/if they develop sufficient legitimacy and liquidity. CCF (as its predecessor fund) was founded and is managed by Mr. Timothy Enneking. Tim has been active in the fund management business for almost 20 years.

Since then, numerous cryptocurrencies have been created. These are frequently called altcoins, as contraction of bitcoin alternative. Cryptocurrencies typically feature decentralized control[as opposed to a centralized electronic money system, such as PayPal) and a public ledger[such as bitcoin s block chain) which records transactions.

This is particularly true of the last year, in which Bitcoin (the de facto proxy for cryptocurrencies) has heaved from $13 to $950, making a pit stop at $1200 along the way. This 7,308% return looks to be outrageously delectable to many a speculator and has even caught the eye of an institutional fund or two. The problem is, and what many novice investors have a problem conceptualizing, that astute institutional “investment” funds actually have a problem dipping their toes in the wilding appreciative yet hyper-volatile world that is cryptocurrencies. The reason is because “investment funds” as opposed to beta chasing “trading” or “hedge funds seek a measured return on investment. The raw returns that you see spouted for Bitcoin and the various alt.coins are actually not what the smart institutional money is looking for. Put another.
