With his expertise, the company plans to improve its internal trading platform and create highly effective asset management tools. Misha will also oversee the company’s product roadmap and strategic development.

“Financial sector is moving rapidly into blockchain technology and we are seeing more traditional investment tools integrated into cryptocurrencies. Availability of reliable products in such a highly volatile market is key for broad crypto adoption. Company’s goal of reducing investment risk for common investors resonates well with me,” explained Misha Malyshev.

C100.digital is an index cryptocurrency company that provides an opportunity to invest in cryptocurrencies while maintaining broad exposure to the growth and valuation of cryptocurrencies, minimizing idiosyncratic risk and volatility of any particular coin.
The C100 index includes the top 100 coins by capitalization. The maximum weight of any coin within the index is no more than 10%. C100 funds are properly collateralized at all times and exclude coins directly tied to any FIAT currency. Any index coin is secured by appropriate collateral held in C100 custody. The C100 can be exchanged at any time for a collection of 100 matching coins. The index is rebalanced at the beginning of each month.
The C100 uses high-tech sophisticated systems to protect against external and internal threats. Most of C100’s collateral is stored in a cold wallet, while only a small amount is available to compatible cryptocurrency exchanges for rebalancing purposes.
