A List of Funds/Companies who Fundraised Through Havelock Investments
NOTE: THIS MAY BE UPDATED OR CHANGED AS I DEVELOP A BETTER PICTURE OF OWNERSHIP OF THESE COMPANIES, UPDATES WILL BE LABELED AS SUCH.
Havelock Investments was an early platform in the cryptocurrency space that allowed for a variety of companies to fundraise.
HAVELOCK INVESTMENTS MINING FUND — Havelock Investments Mining Fund was Havelock’s fund investing in Bitcoin mining.
SATOSHI DICE — Satoshi Dice was a game started by Eric Voorhees ( archive). Satoshi Dice was a gambling service where you could send a Bitcoin transaction to a specified address and could potentially receive significantly more in response. Eric Voorhees was charged with offering unregistered securities for these sales of ownership in SatoshiDICE and FeedZeBirds. ( archive)
CRYPTO CAPITAL CORP — Crypto Capital Corp is a payment processor, infamously used by Bitfinex, and with the principals under US indictment. Crypto Capital claimed that a significant portion of their assets are being held in Poland, Bitfinex’s lawyers claim to not believe this.
5. Q3 2018 Financials ( archive)] They now do white label cryptocurrency casinos. They are linked to Nessie (formerly at nessie.io ( archive), now redirecting to crypto.eu) and MoneyPot ( archive from when MonsterByte owned it) (domain now sold). I think it is valuable to remember that Stuart Hoegner ( archive), the General Counsel for Bitfinex and Tether, is a “lead attorney to major bitcoin and altcoin poker brands”. It is unknown whether or not BitcoinRush/CasinoBitco.in/Monster Byte is among them.
RENTAL STARTER — This was an investment into a real estate fund that was investing in Ohio but was operated by Full Power Asia Investment LTD.
BIG TREND CAPITAL INVESTMENT — The listing on Havelock is not available. It is unclear what they did.
ALCHEMINER — Alcheminer was a company that created ASIC mining hardware.
SEVENTH CONTINENT — Seventh Continent was trying to create a bitcoin denominated marketplace. Their website is still live here. ( archive) They were in part funded by the Lifeboat Foundation’s Bitcoin Endowment. Stuart Hoegner (archive), the General Counsel for Tether and Bitfinex was a member of the Lifeboat Foundation.
