Valkyrie Crypto Trusts raised nearly $74 million in funding amid the bear market.

Valkyrie, an alternative investment firm, added $73.6 million in capital to two crypto-focused trust funds. Valkyrie initially had $1.2 billion in assets under management at the end of the second quarter. This information is contained in amended filings with the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).

In recent years, crypto investment and decentralized finance have proven to be an excellent alternative to the traditional financial system. It may be because Diffie has a way of sanctioning bureaucracy in the financial system.

Decentralized finance (DeFi) enables the use of digital ledger technologies. Digital technology enables investors to access and control their assets and financial data in global financial transactions.


With DeFi, developers have created financial instruments that can operate digital assets without limitations. Loan collateral and debt obligations can all be tokenized with Decentralized Finance.

Since blockchain technologies are transparent and accessible, many investors now channel their finance into the Crypto industry. As a result, traditional finance keeps flowing into the crypto industry, even with the bear market.
