Low Savings From Banks, Income Fund Solutions

Currently a number of retirees are unable to generate any income from their savings. Most banks do not offer an interest rate higher than 0.5% per year. This is barely even sufficient to generate a sustainable income to pay for their daily living expenses.

Our Solution

The RCIF was born on October 1st, 2017. This fully subscribed fund is now closed and we are offering RCIF ||. We leverage the crypto asset marketplace with proof-of-stake mining. We achieve portfolio growth through investment in a diversified basket of other crypto assets. Up to 15% of capital is deployed into Bitcoin and up to 15% is deployed into other high potential coins. Thus, we achieve volatility reduction and downside protection.

Earn Income With Exposure to Crypto Assets

Investors are unable to earn interest in sovereign bonds, with $15 trillion dollars’ worth of bonds yielding negative interest. In the midst of this low rate environment, Coronavirus has changed the investment landscape profoundly. Our goal is to provide a steady income to our investors every month, while providing the upside from the crypto markets.
Our number one goal is to provide a steady 15% per year in distribution, payable monthly

Christina Madai

Lava Trust Partner

Christina’s love of Bitcoin is contagious.

Since learning about BTC in early 2009 she has seen a lot! From the early mining days to owning her own BTM machine, assisting buyers and sellers globally with high volume Bitcoin trades, and educating her close friends and family, she is now supporting others in their Bitcoin journey.

Born and raised in North Vancouver, Christina first became interested in global issues and investing at a young age. Having lived in Europe for four years as a teenager she was able to travel and see over fourteen different countries, and knew immediately she wanted to be part of something bigger: offering global solutions to those less fourtunate.

Christina is very grateful to be part of the LavaTrust team and is looking forward to working closely with clients to match their interests with our products.
