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.

Stablecoins in an Unstable World

For those new to the cryptocurrency market, stablecoins represent one of the more difficult aspects to understand.  The reality of this point is further cemented when one has come into crypto because of Bitcoin or some other specific project or protocol that potentially serves as a universal ledger or universal unit of account.  While the technology and enthusiasm behind Non-Fungible Tokens has understandably garnered much of the attention in the latter half of 2021, it
