According to Epoch Partners’ managing partner James Skinner, undertaking the world’s first public offering of a cryptocurrency fund in Japan has been quite influencing. Venturing of Goldman Sachs and Nomura into space proves a tremendous potential in this area, Skinner further added, as reported in the press release aired by Cision PR Newswire. As far as funding is concerned, Tokyo-headquartered Teneo Partners is said to be funding the project. The company will sell the fund in association with other security firms in Japan.
