Follow along with your favorite influencers or discover new gems submitted by community members. We don’t discriminate, may the best strategies win. It’s really as simple as shopping around portfolios from your smartphone or desktop and a click or two later — BAM — you’re invested. Our goal is to not only give you access to some of the best strategies on the market but also the simplest and smoothest user experience out there!
Channel your inner Warren Buffet, Ray Dalio, or blaze your own path.
If you’re an influencer, trader or Tesla-level ‘Gigabrain’ you can have a portfolio created for you that you can showcase to the world! If people invest along with you, you can earn a percentage of the fee we charge! The more people invest along with you, the more you can earn! That’s right, you can essentially be your own digital asset manager — pretty cool right?
Now — let’s take a look at the first influencer portfolio we launched! This man is straight out of Middle-Earth and ready to share his thoughts on a few potential crypto gems with you!

Polygon: MATIC (19%)
Polygon is a Layer 2 Ethereum Scaling Solution that allows developers to create dApps with low transaction costs and solves the high gas fee problem on the Ethereum Blockchain.

We caught up with Gandalf to find out what he’s been up to since LOTR:
Q: Tell us a little about yourself?
A: On the financial freedom path. A long-term value investor introduced to Defi in October 2021. Since then I’ve been learning as much as I can in the Crypto space and seeking out long-term value plays.
Q: What got you into DeFi?
A: The concept of owning part of digital businesses and sharing more of the earnings generated than investing in traditional financial assets like stocks.
Q: Why should people invest with your “Value Plays” portfolio?
A: It’s a good way to DCA into some well-regarded crypto assets that could do well over the long term.
Q: Why do you think investors should start building diversified crypto portfolios versus hodling?
A: A diversified portfolio is a sensible approach to investing in Crypto due to the greater volatility than traditional financial markets.
Q: What do you like most about Velvet.Capital?
A: It’s similar to Index investing. It allows regular retail investors that don’t have the free time to research all the different crypto assets out there a responsible way to DCA into the Crypto market.
