The bitcoin price has increased from $1,000 at the beginning of 2017 to about $20,000 towards the end of the year. While many cryptocurrency market analysts have warned of a possible bubble bitcoin seems to be the main thing of late.
With the rising concern of cryptocurrency funds, there are only a few auditors that are really experts in the field of selecting asset class. Majority of investors in the digital market do not quite understand the crypto funds as many strive to get into the industry. Hence having a team of experts with foundational information in the key areas is a prerequisite to managing the successful crypto fund business.
