Word from our team
“With an extensive experience in financial markets, I have seen first hand how the 08’ crisis has effected global markets. Reckless behaviour from banks some called “too big to fail”. De-regulation and crony capitalism have shown how human interference can lead to abuses and value destruction. Blockchain in simple terms, reduces the “human error” component of our models used, which is why a full adoption of the technology made perfect sense. At Akwan, we believe it will be inevitable for businesses to make the switch and we can only support those who do and assist our clients in identifying them.”

key events in the history of Cryptos & Akwan
The crypto market is well known for its volatility. It can clearly be attributed to the enthusiasm revolving around its emergence. One can understand that such enthusiasm was often exaggerated which led to scepticism warranted by opportunistic abuses. The same abuses that some experienced during the Dotcom bubble. Here is a timeline of the most notable events in Crypto and Akwan’s history:
Birth of Bitcoin mined
Akwan’s first investment in Bitcoin (through MtGox & Coinbase)
Birth of Ethereum
First wave of Initial Coin Offerings (ICOs) throughout 2017
Akwan’s first managed accounts coincided with the first ICOs
End of 2017
First well known bear cycle pushing total market cap from US$ 750b to US$ 100b that put an end to the first ICO craze
Beginning of 2020
2020 marks a new cycle for the crypto market with DeFi, NFTs, Stable coins, and many more applications pushing the market from US$ 200b to close to US$ 3T
End of 2021
New bear cycle started end of 2021 and by some measure is still ongoing
