Openfinance, a regulated platform for digital asset trading, has added hedge fund Protos to its platform. This is the one of the first crypto hedge funds to be traded on an alternative trading system (ATS). The token will trade under the symbol PRTS.

, according to the company, "is the first U.S.-regulated digital security trading platform built for alternative assets." The company tracks multiple digital assets and is available to qualified US investors and verified non-US investors. These investors will be able to access Protos on the platform.

"We're excited to bring the first tokenized hedge fund to the Openfinance platform," said Openfinance founder Juan Hernandez. "The Protos Asset Management team has been working actively on their product offering for some time. While we currently have assets such as Blockchain Capital (a SF venture capital fund), hedge funds are a longstanding traditional asset class that are now available to investors in a digital format."

Protos claims to hedge on crypto's volatility, capturing "profit opportunities in the digital token and cryptocurrency market while limiting losses and risk during periods of volatility or general market downturns." The company ran an STO in 2017.
