Yale University's wise investing put their $29 billion endowment fund at the top of the nation - and now, they're betting big on cryptocurrency...

The man making the decisions has been called "Yale University's Warren Buffet" and his eye to spot wise investments has Yale's portfolio valued at a massive $29 billion. 

His name is David Swensen - and he just decided cryptocurrency is the next big thing. He's so sure of it, Yale has now invested into two cryptocurrency-focused funds.

The first of those funds is "Paradigm" which was started by Coinbase co-founder Fred Ehrsam and former Sequoia Capital partner Matt Huang.

The second is a fund controlled by Silicon Valley venture capital firm Andreessen Horowitz.

Swenson's ability to predict what's next currently has Yale's endowment fund out performing every other university in the nation.

"The University’s endowment is now valued at a record $29.4 billion — a $2.2 billion increase from last year’s previous record of $27.2 billion. Yale’s Investments Office has traditionally been the top performer among its peer institutions." according to Yale's official school newspaper.

Also important to note, where Swensen goes - others follow!

It's reasonable to expect this will trigger other large investments into the cryptocurrency markets from other university endowments.
