About us

We multiply our clients’ BTC while providing them with unparalleled security measures— so they can trust their assets are in safe hands.

The ICOA Fund is open to subscriptions. It is a POSI-insured, Bitcoin-denominated, and Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS)-regulated open-ended fund.

SIGN-UP FOR OUR NEWS

The fund is open to accredited investors as per Singapore Jurisdiction, The ICOA Fund is poised to deliver returns through innovative investment strategies.

In late 2021, BGBF’s holding company, BCMG, was acquired by ICOA Inc.— a publicly-traded Nevada-based company operating in the fintech, blockchain, decentralized finance (DeFi), and cryptocurrency spaces. The ICOA Fund seamlessly lends itself to ICOA Inc.’s mission to bridge traditional finance with virtual assets.

THE PHILOSOPHY

We have several core values and goals that serve as the foundation of this project that we are committed to delivering on. Here are just a few.

Bridge the Gap Between Traditional Finance and Exciting New Digital Asset Markets.

Our clients’ crypto assets are protected through a hybrid infrastructure in custody with CGCX.io— the world’s first fully-insured crypto exchange. We also work with London-based Copper.co. Underpinned by multi-award-winning custody, Copper has built the most comprehensive and secure suite of tools and services required to safely acquire, trade, and store cryptocurrencies.

All token investors are required to undergo KYC/AML verification, investment subscription contracts are held in custody by regulated entities, and The ICOA Fund is held in storage with multi-signature configuration.

Our overall trading strategy includes:

  • Identifying opportunities on the volatility surface.
  • Exploiting arbitrage opportunities in key derivatives markets, such as cash vs perpetuals, futures and cross exchange.
  • Incorporating AI and quantitative methodologies and tools to identify opportunities.

Provide Clients with Unbeatable Asset Protection.

Matchless security is one of The ICOA Fund’s primary concerns, as the fund strives to expose new, risk-averse audiences— including corporate and institutional investors— to uncomplicated, sound BTC investment. 

In addition to being a Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS)-regulated and POSI-insured, The ICOA Fund will constantly survey advances in security technology to ensure it is leading the pack with industry best practices. Our clients’ crypto assets will be protected through an innovative, state-of-the-art hybrid infrastructure in custody with CGCX.io— the world’s first fully-insured crypto exchange.

All token investors are required to undergo KYC/AML verification, investment subscription contracts are held in custody by regulated entities, and The ICOA Fund is held in storage with multi-signature configuration.

Strike the Perfect Balance for BTC Multiplication.

The ICOA Fund follows the identical investment structure to BGBF-1 — 30% of spending will go towards trading the top 5 BTC pairs through an AI-optimized algorithm, and the remaining 70% will go towards BTC yield generating projects.

By taking a hedging strategy with Bitcoin Futures in pair trading, the AI algorithm will utilize momentum to take directional bets, mixing short and long positions depending on market trends.

On the other hand— to ensure committed yield is achieved— the fund will invest in market makers, liquidity providers, and opportunities relevant to BTC by leveraging CGCX.io’s crypto exchange experience. The 30-day maximum, short-term crypto loans serve to exchange platforms through a network developed by CGCX.io.

Because we are insured and employ an innovative investment strategy, returns are all but guaranteed.

Harness the Power of the Crypto Fund Management Boom.

As a multitude of areas within the blockchain market seemingly skyrocket, crypto fund management is not left behind. The crypto fund management space is expected to grow at a rate of 23.9% through 2026. Beyond that time frame, the rise in asset management, along with increased crypto fund awareness and crypto investment, is expected to ramp up industry growth even further. 

Per Coinbase’s 2021 Global Fund Management report, the total number of global crypto funds has shot up 800% within the last five years. While the market continues to enjoy a steady, sustainable maturation, the industry is anticipated to reach $509.6 million by 2028. 

At The ICOA Fund, our funds directly address the growing global interest from institutional and corporate investors in crypto fund management.

Develop Sound Partnerships to Create Further Convenience for Clients.

The ICOA Fund is currently in collaboration with recognized partners to allow for effortless FIAT conversions and has recently entered into a one-of-a-kind partnership with our sister subsidiary, iBG. 

Through a strategic buyback and burn relationship, The ICOA Fund will provide liquidity to the iBG ecosystem. This joint effort will also make it possible for the iBG token to be the only POSI-insured token in the metaverse. 

We look forward to welcoming further collaborations in the future to better the investment and client experience.
