Income Fund

World-First Bitcoin Income Fund: Wave BTC Income & Growth Digital Fund

A professionally risk-managed Bitcoin product designed to transform BTC volatility into stable yielding income.


WBIG offers a way for Bitcoin investors to improve their risk profile versus holding pure BTC spot exposure.


Investors retain Bitcoin exposure through BTC held in the Fund. At the end of each month, Fund Manager sells one-month call options backed by the Bitcoin held in the Fund, collects a premium from option sales, and passes that premium through to investors in the form of a monthly dividend.

The Fund aims to produce 1.5% of AUM in dividends per month (18% per annum).
