What is Bitcoin Algo?

Bitcoin Algo is designed to outperform bitcoin, aiming for higher returns while reducing volatility in your portfolio. The algorithm benefits from price increases by buying bitcoin at the right times, and limits losses by selling at the right times.

How does Bitcoin Algo work?

Bitcoin Algo only holds two assets: bitcoin and/or euro. And exposure to these assets can range from 0 to 100 percent. To provide a comprehensive market overview, various sources are consulted once a day, such as on-chain data, derivative markets, and price trends. The strategy does not involve day trading or high-frequency trading. This makes Bitcoin Algo highly suitable for long-term investors.

Additionally, Bitcoin Algo takes volatility into account. If the algorithm identifies unfavorable market conditions and there is uncertainty in the market, a portion of bitcoin is automatically converted into euros. In favorable market conditions, the amount of bitcoin within the portfolio is increased.

When the algorithm recognizes a positive market outlook, it can hold a maximum amount of 100% bitcoin. In the case of prolonged upward prices, this means that the strategy cannot outperform bitcoin. However, the euro value of your portfolio will still increase with the bitcoin price.

The performance of Bitcoin Algo is calculated in bitcoin, not in euros. If the euro value of your portfolio increases but the strategy does not outperform bitcoin, then we do not charge performance fees. We only charge performance fees when the strategy performs better than bitcoin.
