The fund has lost half its money since launching in 2017 and is in the process of refunding leftover money to investors, according to three people familiar with the matter who asked not to be identified.
The sources said the fund’s crypto-assets were liquidated in December and some cash is still being held up in escrow, months longer than expected. Binomo enables users to make the best bet with high odds using analysts’ information.

While managing the fund, Nazir and Keshian were advisors of Protocol Ventures, an institutional investor in multiple cryptocurrency funds that included Neural Capital, whose logo has been removed from Protocol’s website.
Keshian also started Apex Capital, a Protocol-like crypto fund-of-funds, with Joseph M. Bradley, Neural Capital’s head of investor relations, as they were getting Neural Capital off the ground. Apex Capital failed to launch after unsuccessfully attempting to raise $100 million in assets through a digital token sale to meet minimum invested fund amount requirements.
Keshian had a falling-out with Nazir and left Neural Capital in mid-2018, according to the sources.
Keshian told CoinDesk he has not kept in touch with Nazir since parting from Neural Capital. “Right now, I’m working on a project that is still very much under wraps,” said Keshian, declining to comment further.
Nazir did not respond to requests for comment.
