Hacker ‘Acidphreak’ to trade crypto for Steve Cohen’s startup

– Steve Cohen has hired Elias Ladopoulos, also known as “Acidphreak”, as the first portfolio manager for his new crypto-only asset manager, On-Chain Investments.

– Ladopoulos is a self-styled cyberpunk and reformed hacker who has experience in venture capital and white-hat hacking.

– Cohen is prioritizing crypto natives for On-Chain, which is a departure from most of Wall Street’s digital asset dealings.

– On-Chain is still in its early stages, and is an entirely separate entity from Point72, Point72 Ventures, and Cohen’s personal family office.

– On-Chain is planning to put capital to work in decentralized finance (DeFi) yield farming opportunities, as well as staking plays, leading up to Ethereum’s highly anticipated Merge to proof-of-stake.
