Makara is the first SEC-registered robo-advisor for cryptocurrency investors. Our team built the most robust management platform for digital asset investors at crypto hedge fund Strix Leviathan and now we are launching a new platform with the same proven trading technology for retail investors. We believe cryptocurrencies should be accessible to everyone. The industry provides a unique opportunity to invest in early-stage technology, and it has the potential to compound capital at rates unavailable in other asset classes. That shouldn’t be reserved for the wealthy.
