Expected Liquidation of the Fund
According to the teams at the asset management firm, the Stone Ridge Bitcoin Strategy Fund is expected to go through liquidation on October 21, 2022. However, they will close the business and terminate its operations on October 3, 2022.
On the same data (October 3, 2022), they would suspend the facility for the investors from purchasing shares at the Fund.
July 2021 Prospectus of the Fund
It was back in the month of July 2021 when the Fund announced that it would bring mainstream investors towards the futures markets related to cryptocurrencies.
The company wanted to expose the mainstream institutions and major investors to Bitcoin in the form of spot investment vehicles. However, the US SEC did not approve the proposal made by the Fund to offer spot investment vehicles to the users.
Stone Ridge wanted to bring more and more investment base towards Bitcoin and for this purpose, it purchase 10,000 Bitcoin.
The NYDIG had aided Stone Ridge in carrying out the purchase of 10,000 Bitcoin. It was back in October of 2020 when Stone Ridge acquired the said number of Bitcoin.
At the time of writing, the trading price of Bitcoin is over $22,000, which means that the company will not be at a loss when it sells Bitcoin.
