A hedge fund that invested in Icahn Industries, a company that sells coal and oil and has deep ties to the Trump administration, has now become a bitcoin investor.
Icahn Capital Group is investing $1.5 billion in the fund.
Icans holdings include the oil and gas company XTO Energy and the energy storage company Alstom.
Icahns investment is notable because it’s a sign that he’s looking at investing in bitcoin.
Icahs biggest holdings are coal and coal mining, which are commodities and commodities funds.
But the company he founded is also the biggest buyer of commodities and energy.
In the last three years, Icahn has bought about $20 billion worth of coal, oil and natural gas, according to Bloomberg data.
Icathans investment in bitcoin has come as he’s been a vocal critic of the move by the Trump Administration to roll back regulations on the use of cryptocurrencies.
Iches CEO, Icahntah Icahn, said in a statement Tuesday that he plans to invest $1 billion in an emerging cryptocurrency fund, the Iconomi fund, which is designed to support the use and growth of new currencies and blockchain technology.
Icns investment has created a new opportunity for Icahn to capitalize on the cryptocurrency craze, said Andrew Siegel, the head of research at New York-based research firm Technomic.
Icann Capital invested in a number of digital currencies during the course of 2016 and into two more, BitShares and Bitcoin Cash, according the company’s website.
Icanna is a leading bitcoin miner and one of the most successful hedge funds in the world.
It is investing in cryptocurrency companies such as Coinbase and BitPay, which operate out of Irvine, California, where Icahn owns a building.

Icaws investments in the global energy industry have been the subject of scrutiny from the government.
The Trump administration’s moves to weaken the Clean Power Plan and the Clean Energy Finance Corporation (CEFC), which oversees energy deals, prompted Icahn Securities to sell its coal and energy stocks in 2018.
