UAE-Linked $500M Crypto Fund Targets Animoca Brands and Chainalysis

As the crypto market continues its bullish streak, the C1 Secondaries Fund, managing assets totaling $500 million, sets its sights on strategic investments in leading crypto firms like Animoca Brands and Chainalysis.

According to a recent report by the Australian Financial Review on December 10, the fund, rooted in both Silicon Valley and the United Arab Emirates, aims to deploy substantial funds ranging from $20 million to $50 million into acquiring private holdings of crypto companies.

These investments will target firms previously valued at $300 million and higher during their last funding rounds, as revealed in their pitch deck.

For Animoca Brands, the C1 Fund’s offer to purchase shares at around $1.12 stands significantly lower than the approximately $4.50 valuation during the company’s recent capital raise, according to Cointelegraph. This proposed price represents a considerable 75% reduction.

Similarly, the fund is eyeing Chainalysis shares at a 63% discount compared to its previous capital raise, indicating a strategic move to leverage the market conditions while securing promising positions in established crypto entities.

The C1 Fund’s endeavor to acquire stakes in these companies aligns with the recent upswing in the crypto sphere. Bitcoin, for instance, surged past the $40,000 threshold in early December, contributing to the overall market capitalization surpassing $1.6 trillion. Presently, BTC maintains a price at $42,000.

With the crypto market continuing its dynamic ascent, the C1 Secondaries Fund’s strategic moves to invest in key players like Animoca Brands and Chainalysis reflect a calculated approach to leverage the ongoing market surge and position itself advantageously in the evolving landscape of digital assets and blockchain technology.
