Kenetic bucks Crypto Market Trend with 77% YTD Portfolio Return

Partnering with VS Asia to offer Pro Investors access to Crypto Funds

HONG KONG, Nov 16, 2018 - (ACN Newswire) - Kenetic, a blockchain investment and advisory firm based in Hong Kong, affirmed that its proprietary investment portfolio recorded year-to-date returns of 77% as of October 31, against a backdrop of major losses in the cryptocurrency markets; Bitcoin has fallen over 50 percent in 2018 and the overall crypto market is down around 65%.
