ABOUT REDIVIDER BLOCKCHAIN OPPORTUNITY ZONE FUND
Redivider is raising capital to invest in a qualified opportunity zone business ("QOZB") that will offer computing leases and hosting services to the Bitcoin mining industry and, to the extent permitted by the opportunity zone rules, to invest in related high-growth businesses. The QOZB will be tasked with (i) finding, acquiring, and building multiple data center locations nationwide and (ii) acquiring extensive inventories of specialized servers that process transactions to earn rewards and fees. This enables the QOZB to lease out a fleet of computing nodes to generate revenue streams from the hardware and low-rate electricity contracts.
Using the radical tax breaks available through the Opportunity Zone tax incentive, Redivider's investors may be able to defer capital gains tax on realized gains timely invested in the fund and eliminate capital gains taxes on the appreciation of fund investments held for ten years. The tax incentive presents a unique opportunity for investors in various sectors, including real estate, corporate disposition, and even cryptocurrency.
