    By Jonathan Hobbs, CFA
    December 2018

    Disclaimer: this article is not investment advice. It’s for information only and represents my opinion. The fund I am associated with, Block X Wealth, currently owns Ravencoin as part of a diversified digital asset portfolio. Digital assets are extremely risky investments. Always do your own research before making any investment decision.
