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. 

Vellum Capital’s name represents our view that when you combine the world’s most advanced record keeping technology with modern trading markets you create an economic opportunity unlike anything we’ve ever experienced. To realize this opportunity, we manage a private investment fund for investors to participate in this technology wave.

Gary, Gary, Gary

Not quite a year ago, I wrote an article trying to honestly assess a reality many in the crypto space would rather ignore.  That article, “What If Gary Gensler Is Right” was a somewhat academic exercise trying to acknowledge the idea that some cryptocurrencies just might be securities and that the SEC’s regulatory crackdown on the space might have some justification.  Much has changed, and much has occurred since that article originally appeared, but one
