BKCM LLC was founded by Brian Kelly in 2013, following his year-long foray into digital currency trading with Bitcoin. Since then, the Firm has been an active participant in the emerging digital currency ecosystem with its flagship hedge fund, opportunistic funds, and proprietary trading.
The Company operates three funds pursuant to an exemption from CPO registration under CFTC Regulation 4.13(a)(3), is a SEC Registered Investment Advisor, and is a member of the NFA. It is subject to all NFA regulatory oversight and examinations.
Separate from the funds, the BKCM occasionally invests in high-quality projects focused on the mainstream adoption of digital currencies. Investments include tokens and equity in companies building base layer protocols, second layer applications, and trading-related infrastructure.
Brian Kelly is the CEO of BKCM LLC. He has twenty years plus experience trading in currencies, commodities, equities, and fixed income markets, and has been an active investor in the digital currency markets since 2012. He is a contributor for CNBC’s Fast Money and is the author of The Bitcoin Big Bang: How Alternative Currencies Are About to Change the World.
