Launched by Morgan Creek Capital Management, a global wealth manager offering access to blockchain technology and digital resources for institutional clients and wealthy family offices, the fund will include several altcoins, including Litecoin, Ethereum, Ethereum Classic, Bitcoin Cash, EOS, Dash, Zcash, Monero and OmiseGO.
Morgan Creek CEO Mark Yusko says, "Every investor should consider assigning digital assets right now." Yusko, who is also chairman of the Investment Committee of The Hesburgh-Yusko Scholarly Foundation at the University of Notre Dame states that the interest of cryptocurrency on the part of institutional investors is real. He says they are demanding exposure to space and that the Digital Asset Investment Fund is a response to requests and is designed specifically for high-net investors.
Morgan Creek Capital Management, a multibillionaire investment advisor, has chosen Bitwise as a partner for the new fund thanks to its strength in the rules of quantitative index and in the management of professional funds.

The fund will trace the Morgan Creek Bitwise Digital Asset Index consisting of "The top 10 of cryptocurrencies ", giving a big institutional push to nine altcoins as well as Bitcoin. Yet there are no better currencies for market capitalization. These include non-tiny coins Ripple aka XRP (# 3), Stellar (# 6), Cardano (# 8), IOTA (# 9) and Tron (# 10), with respective rankings by market capitalization, according to WorldMarketCap.  While the excluded coins at the top all have a certain percentage of pre-mined coins that were initially created when their blockchain was launched, so did Ethereum. Even EOS and OMG are not threatening.

"If there is a central party that holds 30% or more of an offer, then we treat those from the index," said Morgan Creek partner Digital Anthony Pompliano, reports Forbes. "Because we think it introduces a lot of additional risks that may not be there if it were a more decentralized network."
According to the announcement, the included coins passed a number of requirements.
"Resources must be rigorous, rule-based eligibility requirements, including custodial qualifications, trade concentration limits and pre-mine restrictions to be included.All resources are kept 100% in cold storage, best practice for safety and are tested annually. "
My share of the award winner was 0.7% of the current supply. I'm not sure that the model that has me as an agent that maximizes profit would preach it, especially in contrast to the best Ripple holders and pretty much any other recent cryptocurrency.

In contrast, Ripple owns 60% of XRP, which was pre-mined; Stellar has distributed 8.1 billion of its native Lumens currency, which has a supply of 104.24 billion; and Tron blocked TRX 33.25 billion in 1,000 addresses on Tron's main network on a total supply of 99 billion
. The new cryptographic fund covers about 75% of the market – with Bitcoin in the dominant position at 69.1% of the composition.
