The About Us page says this... About Us The emergence of digital currencies is a black swan event with extreme upside potential for investors. Bitcoin is currently the clear leader of this space, but there are many scenarios under which other AltCoins could capture a significant portion of the digital currency economy. However, choosing the right AltCoin (and storing it securely) is difficult. Most AltCoins are pump and dump scams. The principals of this fund are highly technical (with deep cryptographic experience), and we believe this background will prove advantageous in choosing the few AltCoins that provide real, long-term value. An intelligent investment approach in digital currencies would allocate some percentage of funds into AltCoins. MetaStable allows investors to easily choose how much exposure they want to the AltCoin market.
