Passive Digital Asset is an open-end alternative cryptocurrency investment fund by Osijek-based company Griffon Asset Management.
The fund's units initial offering will reportedly remain open for 15 days after the announcement.
Passive Digital Asset is a high-risk fund as its investments focused on cryptocurrency-related assets of high volatility, which is why it is designed for long-term investors who are very risk-tolerable, as an addition to the traditional investment portfolio, the regulator highlighted.
