Galaxy’s Institutional Ethereum Funds Raise $32M at Launch – From a Select Few
Galaxy Digital’s institutional-grade ether (ETH) funds have raised over $32 million since their February launch, according to documents filed Friday with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.
Early returns – for an “onshore” $22 million fund and its Cayman-domiciled $10 million sibling – reveal a small but deep-pocketed clientele participated in the twin funds’ earliest days. Just five total investors have joined the funds since Galaxy unveiled them in late January.
The funds debuted as ETH settled in the $1,500 range, well below highs set February when the native asset of the world computer topped $2,000 for the first time ever. But Galaxy’s executives, including ETH bull Mike Novogratz, are betting Ethereum’s programmability will spell future investment success.

$1B Fei Stablecoin’s Rocky Start Is a Wake-Up Call for DeFi Investors
The $1 billion Fei Protocol stablecoin project has gotten off to a very rocky start. The most important data point is this: Fei was built to maintain a 1:1 peg with the U.S. dollar but it has not quite hit the mark over this first week of its existence. Backed by major VCs, Fei aimed to create a stablecoin protocol that would outright buy assets with its token, rather than holding them as collateral for loans.
