G2D’s Investment in the Bitcoin Market appreciates 19 times

G2D Investments – a global investment platform investing in disruptive, high-growth, pre-IPO-stage companies in Brazil, the US and Europe – announces its original investment in the Bitcoin Market of R$ 13.6 million, carried out in January, reached a 19-fold appreciation, reaching more than R$ 240 million. The company is a direct investor in 2TM Participações, the controller of the Bitcoin Market, which last Thursday announced that it had received an investment of R$ 1 billion made by SoftBank.

Last May, G2D had already received R$31 million with the listing of Coinbase brokerage on Nasdaq, a company in which it was also an investor. This equates to a return of more than 33 times the initial investment. According to Carlos Pessoa, director of investor relations at G2D, the Coinbase and Bitcoin Market events represent a gain of more than BRL 270 million in the company’s equity (NAV), which corresponds to an appreciation of more than 61% of the pre-IPO G2D balance sheet. Equity (NAV) per share jumped from R$ 6.35 to R$ 8.94 after the two events.

“Our experience with Coinbase served as an inspiration for investing in the Bitcoin Market”, says Carlos Pessoa . “This reinforces our thesis that being present in investment at a global level helps us to better see some opportunities.”

In the case of Coinbase, G2D sold 100% of its position when the brokerage made the IPO on Nasdaq. As for the Bitcoin Market, G2D continues with the investment, since the cryptocurrency platform and digital assets is still in a stage of accelerated growth in value. Therefore, the G2D investor has the opportunity to have the Bitcoin Market in the portfolio, even if the company is not listed on the stock exchange. These two cases demonstrate the flexibility of G2D in the face of liquidity events, being able to fully exit and monetize its participation or maintain its position to continue participating in the generation of asset value.
