The IHF token recently became tradeable on Liquid, an exchange by Quoine.  In order to mark the listing, Hyperion aims to acquaint new investors with the project details.

The Hyperion Fund functions as a syndicated venture capital fund that provides independent investors access to the earliest stage investments in blockchain projects. Through the IHF token, investors gain diversified exposure to a portfolio of expertly-vetted investments in private and public pre-sales, and ICOs.

Hyperion investors benefit from the power of syndication, along with Invictus Capital’s extensive network to gain access to investments with limited allocations on preferential terms. The fund also leverages Invictus’s expertise to support the ongoing success of the portfolio companies.

Hyperion differs from most other cryptocurrency projects as the fund owns underlying assets. IHF appreciates along with the underlying and faces upwards price pressure in the long-term by means of the buy-and-burn protocol. The protocol involves using 50% of quarterly profits to buy IHF from the open market and permanently destroy them by means of a burn address, the protocol comes into effect once the fund has exceeded $30M in value.

The following is a short summary of the nine Hyperion portfolio companies. Full investment reports are available.
