BLACK ONYX was established in 2015 as an alternative investment consultancy, initially focused on hedge funds, supported by 50+ best-of-breed asset managers offering traditional & alternative and investments to retail and institutional investors. We began investing in cryptocurrencies in our personal capacity in 2016.
The CURRENCY HUB crypto-arbitrage strategy was identified in 2017 and was made publically available in 2019, after recognition by the SARB (South African Reserve Bank) and sign-off from our legal counsel (for purposes of exchange control).
The directors have an established crypto investment strategy, serving as an environment for incubating ideas and technical models which contribute to the seeding of other crypto investments. These include actively managed & passive crypto funds, crypto mining, OTC, blockchain start-ups, DeFi, yield farming, NFT’s, gaming and Web 3.
As an authorized FSP (50850) with an advisory and discretionary licence (FSCA Cat 1 & 11) and a SARB-approved Foreign Exchange Intermediary (6176), BLACK ONYX is in a unique position to support crypto firms with asset management aspirations, regulation and distribution.
We are one of the few firms regulated and authorised by the FSCA to offer advice on crypto assets and provide an intermediary service. We are a member of CAASA (The Crypto Asset Association of South Africa).
