C Capital, a firm started by Hong Kong real estate tycoon Adrian Cheng, plans to raise $500 million to invest in blockchain assets, credit and private-equity over the next 18 months, betting prices of private companies and digital assets are bottoming out.

Also co-founded by ex-Bank of America Merrill Lynch banker Ben Cheng, the firm is marketing a $200 million blockchain fund and plans to gather about $300 million to invest in private-equity and private credit strategies next year, people familiar with the matter said, asking not to be identified discussing fundraising details.
