Meet Casa, the latest addition to Lerer Hippeau’s portfolio.

HQ: New York City

Founder: Jeremy Welch

The problem: More and more of the world’s wealth is being transferred into cryptographic keys. As that money moves, managing and safeguarding keys becomes a significant concern for many cryptocurrency holders.

Casa’s solution: The multi-signature wallet offers the best protection for keys currently available, giving owners full key control, round-the-clock support via phone and email, and protection from threats such as theft, fire, and end-of-life.

Origin story: Dissatisfied with both the centralized control of custodian solutions and the single point of failure of many hardware wallets, founder Jeremy Welch set out to create a company that offers an industry-leading key system. Casa is built for HODLers, by HODLers, he says.

Why we’re betting on it: Jeremy has taken an intentional approach to building a product with a great design without sacrificing security. For crypto to grow we need to get past technology built for technologists. We have to get to the point where technology is built for the consumer. The future of everything around blockchain and this ecosystem starts and ends with the wallet. Finding someone who’s building a better version of that is a good place to invest.

Our take: Right now, the biggest place of need is storing financial digital assets, but long-term we think digital assets extend beyond that to other things, such as identity, collectibles, and other valuable digital information. In the short-term, the technology will be very financially focused and in the long-term they’ll be a lot more use cases enabled by how many things you can safely store.
