Founder & CEO
David is Founder and Chief Executive Officer of DeFi Strategies. Mr. Foley has been
instrumental in developing DeFi Strategies’ foundational processes and capabilities,
including its risk management platform; creating value for clients. Prior to founding DeFi
Strategies Mr. Foley operated a crypto fund that returned an average of 240% per year for
four years. David holds two bachelor’s degrees: a BS in Applied Mathematics and a BS in

David has been involved in the crypto space since May of 2017. He was first exposed to
Bitcoin and Ethereum while working at RBC Wealth Management & Capital Markets. He left RBC to refine his skills and develop a fund that handled the burden of research, security, and custody for its investors. Having amassed a sizable crypto portfolio for himself and business partners, David started DeFi Strategies, a crypto conglomerate that provides sound education and investment strategy in a convenient package. Since its inception DeFi Strategies has been able to mitigate the losses sustained in the broader market using our unique Growth Fund and Value Fund strategies. Careful analysis combined with fee accrual from open market operations puts the company well ahead of benchmarks like Bitcoin and Ethereum.
David spends his time performing market research and combing through financial
markets, constantly iterating on our investment strategies. As a testament to his
dedication and commitment to drive crypto adoption, David has voluntarily unbanked
himself and transacts entirely in cryptocurrency.
