Crypto asset investing requires the application of public market investment techniques plus access to and understanding of venture-stage tech investing. This dynamic landscape demands active portfolio management and flexible investment strategies. Consistent alpha generation from digital asset investing requires dynamic tools to execute specific processes inside a well-defined investment framework.
Iron Key Capital combines quantitative trading techniques to manage risk with a thesis-driven venture style research framework, focusing on enterprise adoption of utility driven digital assets. Given that crypto investing is like liquid venture capital, we systematically take profits and tend to cut losers fast and concentrate on our high-conviction theses across various sectors of the digital asset ecosystem.
Iron Key Capital is a group of entrepreneurs, financial professionals, digital asset investors, and technology and cybersecurity experts. We operate a digital asset hedge fund that invests people’s money into emerging digital assets. IKC was founded on the principle that actions rooted in passion bring about lasting change for humanity, and digital assets will usher in a new era of accountability for mankind.
We believe that we are obligated to be shepherds of this technology, and educate the world on the important role digital assets play in securing our future. We also believe that scarce digital assets are the most important asymmetric return asset of this decade and belong in any intelligent investor’s portfolio, given the massive amounts of government spending on top of an increasingly large deficit compounding on top of an increasingly untenable debt level with no end in sight.

Joseph is an entrepreneur and investor with a 10+ year track record of outperformance, investing in financial services, fintech, and emerging technologies. After an unsuccessful attempt to utilize Lehigh University’s servers to mine bitcoin in 2015, he unintentionally became an expert in the platform business model while building an education technology company that connected active college tour guides to prospective students. Joseph believes that blockchain technologies are the next evolution of the platform business model, given that their values largely accrue from network effects.
