Blockchain.com Ventures (BCV) Q4 Update

Blockchain.com is not only the world’s premier international digital asset brand, we are also one of the most prolific early-stage venture investors in the space with over 40 investments from our Venture Fund I alone. Fund I began investing in the coldest period of crypto winter and was fortunate to back some of the leading projects and companies today including Wintermute Trading, Aave, Theta, Near Protocol, Enjin, Terra, Amber, Blockdaemon, and many more.

With Fund I now fully invested, the investment team is now looking to the future.

Sam Harrison, one of our two inaugural General Partners, is launching his own fund, Faction Capital. We are delighted to continue our partnership by backing Faction Capital as its anchor LP and co-investor. Sam will remain a Venture Partner at Blockchain.com Ventures and we look forward to working together in the years to come.

The global venture capital sector will invest nearly $30B into crypto companies this year. That means even more brilliant ideas, committed founders and new customers than ever will come into the space. The investment team at Blockchain.com, led by our CEO and co-founder Peter Smith, will continue to back companies at their earliest stages and has invested in nearly a new early stage deal each week this quarter. More news on that front, and about expanding the team, soon!

To be best positioned to lead those investments, Blockchain.com is pleased to announce the formation of BCV Fund II. BCV will continue to be led by Peter, and we’re excited to share that Peter will be joined by two of our Blockchain.com team members, Michelle Tang and Ani Banerjee to help guide BCV’s bright future.
