MOSCOW, October 28. /TASS/. The Maxfield Capital fund, established with the participation of Russian billionaire Viktor Vekselberg’s companies, has acted as the main investor in a $5 million round of investments in US service nCrypted Cloud to protect data in the Internet storage facilities, the fund said in a statement Tuesday.
