May 2018 Update: Wolverine Crypto Trading has officially re-branded to Wolverine Blockchain. View our new website for all details and information.

Michigan FinTech is officially announcing our partnership with Wolverine Crypto Trading, the newest student-led investment fund at the University of Michigan using real money to trade in the global and dynamic cryptocurrency markets.


WCT is a cryptocurrency investment fund that allows a select cohort of students (traders) to invest money ($1000/student provided by fund) towards creating a diversified portfolio of cryptocurrencies. WCT allows traders to each manage their own individual portfolios, giving traders full autonomy over how they choose to invest their capital into cryptocurrencies and providing an incredible action-based learning experience. This contrasts with traditional investment funds which typically entail pooled funds and/or decisions.

The project will be run on digital currency exchange Bittrex, which offers 200+ alt-coins (coins other than BTC) including Ether, Litecoin, Dash, Ripple, Monero, NEO, OmiseGo, and many others.

Trading, Discussion & Community

  • Trading: Using a fully digital, crypto-to-crypto exchange, members trade BTC, LTC, ETH and hundreds of other coins, experiencing first-hand the sometimes rapid volatility of digital assets.
  • Discussion: Members meet weekly to discuss current events, articles or videos in the crypto space. Members rotate picking the topic and then lead the discussion, sharing successes/failures and brainstorming investment opportunities.
  • Community: Once per month, WCT opens up meetings to the larger University of Michigan community. The project strives to build community at the University of Michigan by bringing in professors, industry experts, and companies to engage with our members and share professional and personal experiences.
