How do you price the Shares?
The Shares are priced in accordance with the methodology detailed in our Product Disclosure Statement.

How do you store the Cryptocurrencies?
The message that investors shouldn't hold their cryptocurrencies on an exchange is still not heeded by some investors. It is essential that digital assets are held in cold storage (the cryptocurrencies should be stored in a wallet that is not connected to the internet).
Any time a wallet is held on a platform connected to the internet provides the potential for an investor to lose part or all of their funds.
Security is a major focus for us. That is why Crossgate Capital has entered an into agreement with BitGo to store the vast majority of the crypto assets.
BitGo is a leader in digital asset financial services, processing around 15 per cent of all global bitcoin transactions and USD $15 billion per month across all cryptocurrencies.
BitGo provides 100% cold storage technology, storing our assets in a secure offline environment. All of our digital assets are held in cold storage for the security of our investors.
How do you determine which assets to invest in?
We only invest in the top cryptocurrencies, which has to have a market capitalisation of at least NZD $500 million.
Our approach is to review a range of indicators to assess the long-term potential of the cryptocurrency. We want to invest in the cryptocurrencies which have a reason for being, and which have a more established developer community.
We consider that to invest successfully in this asset class, continual research and monitoring of each asset is required. This is important in order to determine the overall asset weighting and therefore construct an appropriate portfolio. A diversified portfolio limits the exposure of investing in just one cryptocurrency.
We invest based on fundamentals not retail hype. Our approach is to take a considered position in order to deliver on our objective of providing strong returns to our investors.
How can I exit my investment?
Crossgate Capital provides investors an easy on-ramp to a modern product whilst providing all the benefits that are associated with a traditional Share offer, such as being able to list the Shares on the Unlisted Securities Exchange (USX), based in New Zealand.

The total market capitalisation has grown to approximately $3.5b and USX issuers have raised over $400m while listed on the market, which includes an IPO.
How do you manage risk?
The investment strategy is to invest in crypto assets which have a market capitalisation of at least NZD $500 million. In the event that a crypto asset market capitalisation falls below this threshold for six consecutive months (or earlier if the Board consider it is in the beneficial interests of Shareholders), then the Board will exit this crypto asset and reinvest the funds.
The Board may also exit an asset if there is a material change to the underlying protocol.
The security of crypto assets should be a major focus for any investor who is investing in Cryptocurrencies. That is why Crossgate Capital has selected BitGo to provide our custodial solution and hold the majority of our crypto assets.
