On January 1st, 2023 they announced that the net asset value (“NAV”) of each BCAP token as of December 31th, 2022, is $18.00, based on the NAV of the underlying venture capital fund, Blockchain Capital III Digital Liquid Venture Fund, LP.
The BCAP NAV finished down 3.5% for the fourth quarter of 2022. The Q4 decrease reason was not given, but it is assumed to be driven by fears of inflation and the Q4, 2022 downturn in the cryptocurrency market.
There are two companies in this equity portfolio that are worth noting. The first is Kraken, a highly regulated cryptocurrency exchange that could benefit from additional regulatory oversight on exchanges, and who may be happy to poach previous clients of the collapsed FTX exchange. Since Kraken is not publicly traded yet, the potential upside is higher than Coinbase an exchange that also stands to benefit from the FTX fiasco.
The most valuable future company in the portfolio might be Securitize. They are currently over due for a series C, after raising $48 Million in a Series B in June 2021. Securitize is the market leader in the emerging digital securities space, in fact Securitize is the wallet and portal that is used for BCAP investors.
The BCAP portfolio is up 1,700% since inception, post-STO from April 2017, and has a Net IRR of 65.6%. Performance figures are net of all fees and carry.
When reviewing crypto assets in the portfolio, the token RocketPool (RPL) could be the next unicorn, this token has more than doubled in value in January, 2022, and has recently emerged as a top 100 market cap token. This recent price surge will benefit investors in Q1, 2022.
