Famed hedge fund trader and bitcoin evangelist Mike Novogratz announced today that his Galaxy Digital Ventures is investing $15 million in blockchain startup AlphaPoint, a New York-based company that aims to simplify the way assets are issued on a blockchain by essentially offering customers the technology used to create crypto exchanges.
