CFund Plan to Supports the Adoption of Cardano Ecosystem

CFund is a collaborative project between IOG and Wave Financial and plans to support the Cardano ecosystem by investing in influential projects. The fund was first announced at the Shelley Summit and focuses on companies using Cardano’s blockchain and technology.

David Roebuck, Head of Wave Finance, spoke to IOHK and outlined the fund’s plans. Let’s briefly summarize the conversation.

The Fund Details

Managed by Wave Financial in partnership with IOG, CFund is a crypto-native hedge fund pursuing an early-stage risk strategy and investing in innovative companies that develop businesses, applications and products on the Cardano blockchain. The fund leverages the domain know-how and connections of IOG and Wave Finance, and CFund creates a multiplier effect for the companies in its portfolio and increases their growth significantly.

The Rationality Behind the Fund

IOG hopes to enable developers to create interoperable, scalable and sustainable blockchain solutions. It also aims to promote financial inclusion in the severely underpopulated regions of the world. IOG hopes to create a new financial structure that will focus on emerging markets and utilize dApps and protocols that have been deployed on Cardano and other similar blockchains.

Investment Method

The fund is supported by institutional investors, family offices and wealthy private individuals. Roebuck said

“CFund looks to invest in, and partner with, leading early-stage projects and businesses that primarily have a focus on the Cardano ecosystem and associated technology. The fund is already actively deploying capital and creating partnerships across the Cardano ecosystem.”

CFund takes a rigorous approach to the analysis of investment opportunities, taking into account several factors that may play a role in the investment. The fund assesses whether the company’s products are needed in the market and then determines the position of its competitors and whether they can outperform the company.

The fund also examines the company-related teams and their backgrounds, knowledge, skills and resources to carry out and expand their projects. It also evaluates possible exit scenarios. The main goal of CFunds is to help Cardano build a partnership in the blockchain space, which is why one of the most important factors is whether the project can add value to the Cardano ecosystem.

Focus on DeFi

The fund is focused on DeFi and its first investment is called COTI, a scalable decentralized e-commerce payment network. According to Roebuck, COTI is adding value to the Cardano ecosystem as it “aims to provide a bridge for DeFi applications to be deployed on the Cardano blockchain”.

COTI is also developing ADA Pay, a solution that enables merchants to accept ADA payments through instant billing. Another company in the portfolio is Blockswap, an automated protocol that allows users to re-stake assets that have already been pledged, providing liquidity for pledge activities.

CFunds’ latest investment in DeFi is Occam.Fi. Occam.Fi is a range of DeFi solutions specifically tailored for Cardano, and the company has already launched its first product. This decentralized funding platform will enable DeFi applications to use the Cardano blockchain to raise funds.

CFund Long-term Plan

CFund plans to invest primarily in Cardano, become the leading venture capital firm in Cardano and become an integral part of the Cardano ecosystem.

“In line with IOG’s founding principle of cascading disruption, the idea that most of the structures that form global financial, governance and social systems are inherently unstable and thus minor perturbations can cause a ripple effect that fundamentally re-configures the entire system.”

CFund identifies and supports the technologies that bring these disruptions together while promoting a fair and transparent order for the relevant stakeholders.
