ABOUT

Beyond Bitcoin, LLC is a Manhattan based investment firm focused on the next generation of cryptocurrencies.  Incredible developments are occurring in areas such as DeFi, NFTs, smart contract and dapp platforms, metaverse, Web 3.0, Layer -1 protocols and Layer-2 scaling solutions.  Beyond Bitcoin, LLC is focused on these exciting crypto themes and their native tokens with a series of indexes to track the overall market as well as these sub-sectors.  

Sunset Over Manhattan

Beyond Bitcoin, LLC is a minority owned firm.

Many of the leading broad crypto index funds have 70% - 90% of their assets in just two cryptocurrencies, Bitcoin and Ether.  This is sub-optimal for two reasons, they are not diversified from a general investment standpoint and they don’t offer exposure to many of the most exciting cryptocurrencies that represent the future of the asset class. All of the indexes offered by Beyond Bitcoin, LLC are equally weighted and therefore track the space in a more diversified and inclusive manner than many other crypto indexes currently on the market.
