Blockchain Investments

A Cryptocurrency Investments Fund

About Us

We believe a public digital ledger and affiliated Blockchain technologies are the culmination of many centuries of human progress and development. Our name firm ‘Vellum’ goes far back to ancient times. Roman societies would use the highest quality leather skins to produce manuscripts and important records – and many still survive to this day.

Words Have Meanings…So Do Acronyms

Bitcoin Becomes a Stablecoin?

Even if you are only marginally interested in crypto, you are likely aware of the events of the past few weeks in which the stablecoin “UST” lost its peg, resulting in a “death spiral” for both UST and the LUNA token, which is the centerpiece of the Terra ecosystem.  For many in the crypto space, it has been tempting, convenient, or perhaps psychologically necessary to blame the demise of UST and LUNA on some outside
