Our Digital Asset Investing Thesis

Arbor Digital’s investment thesis for our Flagship portfolio is centralized around Metcalf’s Law and network effects. The term network effect refers to situations in which the value of a product, service, or platform depends on the number of buyers, sellers, or users who leverage it. Metcalfe’s Law says that a network’s value is proportional to the square of the number of nodes in the network. For our Compass portfolio, we have added elements from the thesis and laws that we believe are salient today such as the Fat Protocol Thesis, The Power Law, and the Lindy Effect.

Important Note: Our investment thesis has evolved over time and will continue to do so in the coming years as we discover what drives this nascent asset class. It started simply with a macro thesis on Bitcoin and its network effects and has now expanded beyond to incorporate elements across different industries as we invest across the digital asset spectrum. 

Arbor Digital Portfolios

Blockchain technology is the most important innovation since the internet and is the technology underpinning digital assets. These next-gen networks provide greater accessibility through decentralization, unparalleled transparency, and security. While still in the early stages of adoption, the potential for efficiency gains through these technological advances are exponential, as is the opportunity to invest. We will capitalize on this by investing in good-faith digital asset projects solving real problems, creating value, and building network effects.

Bitcoin as an investment exhibits strong non-correlation benefits to traditional stock and bond portfolios.
