NYDIG has marked another millions-worthed raise of funds. This time a single investor brought $100M on the Digital Assets Fund II project.

NYDIG, the cryptocurrency asset management company, has raised $100 million from a single investor. The firm collected the amount during its newly-announced fund Digital Assets Fund II, after the previous fundraising project, named Digital Assets Fund I.

$150M In Just Two Crypto Investment Funds

According to officially published documents filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, the New York-based digital asset firm revealed that it raised $100 million from only one investor on their recently announced project Digital Assets Fund II.

The operation follows its forerunner Digital Assets Fund I, which raised $50 million from investors in November. The amount has been reportedly collected from just two investors and was to invest mainly in Bitcoin.

The $50 million fundraise in November came after a quadrupling in NYDIG clients. The firm offers investment, brokerage, treasury, and technology solutions for Bitcoin to its institutional allocators, corporations, investment advisors, etc.

Another Publicly-Owned Company to Own a Big Pile of Bitcoin

As CryptoPotato recently reported, less than two months ago, asset manager Stone Ridge bought 10,000 bitcoins worth about $115 million through its subsidiary NYDIG. The new digital assets-oriented investment was reportedly to serve as a primary treasury reserve asset for the company.

Co-Founder and CEO of NYDIG, Robert Gutmann, said that considering that Bitcoin switches to a mainly institutionally-owned asset, “the company has a better position than ever” to be the leading provider of BTC solutions to a variety of banks, corporations, and institutions.

Speaking on the Bitcoin investment, Gutmann also said that the NYDIG is proud to facilitate one of the largest commitments of treasury assets to the cryptocurrency to that date. He added that he sees demand for the company’s full suite of corporate treasury and investment solutions accelerating.

In another significant recent Bitcoin purchase in October, Jack Dorsey’s Square reportedly bought $50 million worth of the most influential and valuable digital asset right now. Thus, it became the second publicly-traded company to do so in recent months after MicroStrategy.
