Many investment companies are now showing interest in the leading cryptocurrency, Bitcoin (BTC), which has been gaining worldwide adoption among corporate and deep-pocketed investors. It’s no longer a doubt that Bitcoin is becoming a darling asset for institutions, following the records on Grayscale and other related platforms.
To further serve the increasing demand, SkyBridge Capital has filed with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) for a Bitcoin fund.

SkyBridge Capital is an investment company from Anthony Scaramucci with about $9 billion in assets under management. On Monday, the company applied for its Bitcoin fund dubbed “SkyBridge Bitcoin Fund L.P.” in a form D. Per the document, Scaramucci is expected to oversee the Bitcoin product. Additionally, SkyBridge Capital will be allowed to advertise the Bitcoin fund to accredited investors if the regulator approves the offering.
