The Templar Fund is privately operated by a retired hedge fund manager with significant Wall Street experience. This person has high public name recognition and chooses not to publish the details of his or her personal identity due to the nature of Bitcoin trading. Instead, the Templar Fund's results are left to stand for themselves.
Because we trade only digital assets, we are not obligated to report the identities or earnings of our clients to any regulatory authority. However, as you may expect, authorities make routine attempts to invade personal privacy in order to determine your digital income. This has become common practice in a world that is primed to trust authority as a result of fear or a misguided understanding of security.
To protect your identity and earnings, we do not publish or offer any information that would allow a specific entity to compromise our client registrar and/or your account details. This is the only method to ensure your account is 100% anonymous and protected from reporting requirements. Our operation is protected by encrypted communication and strategically-placed corporate assets/personal so that a single point of security failure cannot happen, nor can a government entity seize your account.
We expect some potential clients to be unnerved by this. However, we hope that our 100% transparency policy of posting every single trade we make is enough to gain your confidence versus looking at a typical list of corporate officers and their resumes (which can often be false in the first place). We believe this system, of open results and verifiable data, is the manner in which business will be conducted in future generations.
We get this question a lot, and honestly there is no real answer to it. So consider this:
People who ask that question often follow-up with a question about regulation. We will point out, however, that regulators of the past also couldn't provide a guaranteed answer to this question when it came to traditional funds like Madoff Securities or Long Term Asset Management. The truth of the matter is all financial services involve an element of counterparty risk. Here's the good news, though: you can mitigate it pretty easily with the Templar Fund:
We recommend you to consider joining our discord channel to speak with other clients from around the world who have experience with us. Beyond pointing you in that direction, our office specifically goes out of our way to not make a "pitch" to you, as that is what any non-legitimate entity would do. Instead, we simply say this: we are transparent with our results (including a live trade stream), a web search will not show you any complaints of a scam, we have been featured on NBC and ABC, which vetted us, and there are plenty of articles and reviews from people who have used our system. If that isn't comfortable, we respect the fact that we may not be a good fit together.
A ponzi scheme occurs when an entity collects investor dollars to pay returns to earlier investors, which eventually ends in collapse. As can be seen in our trade activity, we earn profit from a third party source (BitMEX) and report our earnings based off of this. In other words, our profit is derived from trading and not by quoting the price of our own stock. It is impossible for us to be a ponzi scheme.
The Templar Fund trades as a market maker and provides liquidity to the world's largest BTC futures market, BitMEX. We earn profit by realizing the spread between the buyers and sellers of Bitcoin contracts. For a more detailed explanation, watch our video.
We charge clients two fees: (1) a 25.000% profit share and (2) a 2.000% withdrawal fee. The profit share fee is deducted at the end of each trade cycle. The withdrawal fee is deducted at the time of redemption. There are no additional fees or charges.
We at the Templar Fund stake our reputation on the strength and reliability of our financial performance. Accordingly so, we make our complete trade history available to the public, who is welcome to independently scrutinize and verify it. This trade history comes directly from the Bitcoin Mercantile Exchange daily settlement report and trade history. We also provide screenshots to validate our control and ownership of these trading accounts. You can also watch us trade live, 24/7 & compare what you see with our reported results
Market making is buying and selling the same asset in order to take advantage of the price spread. Another term for this is to "provide liquidity" to a market. For a more detailed explanation, watch our webinar.
No investment returns could ever be guaranteed. We can guarantee, however, that our trade system will be functional every day without down time and that our trade strategy will always be active. This should ensure profits each trade cycle. It is worth noting that the Templar Fund has earned profit in every 30-day trade cycle of its existence.
All investment requires risk. Market making is among the lowest risk trading strategies. While the Templar Fund has never experienced a losing trade cycle to date, it is theoretically possible to lose some or all of your funds. You should invest only what you can afford to lose.
