Introduction to our ecosystem
Revenue sharing components
AKJ Digital Assets FoF — the fund of funds and seed capital provider
The fund of funds (the ‘FoF‘) that invests in selected hedge funds on the AKJ Crypto platform. Net proceeds from the token offering will be held in the FoF, providing funds with investment capital and token investors with access to capital appreciation generated by top managers. 25% of all net revenues and capital appreciation generated by the FoF are shared with token holders, with this amount to increase to 100% over time upon the achievement of certain company milestones.
