our investemt thesis & vehicles

Digital ownership and decentralization will flip the current paradigm of the internet from accumulating value in tech monopolies to distributing value to users.

Users now have ownership in the form of digital property rights: NFTs & tokens.

Those will be the basis for a new token-based economy.

We will invest both in the companies as well as the digital assets.

fund 1: ventures

deal focus

Equity and tokens in Web3 startups and DAOs.
