Conversations about blockchain

Shyam Kamadolli

Yes winter is here in “crypto” , but blockchain technology is thriving

Welcome to the first of our new periodic updates about our blockchain-tech focused funds, our strategy, our portfolio, and sector news.

Highlights

  • Should you read this update? Only if you are curious about how a diversified VC fund focused on blockchain and decentralized finance can thrive despite the decimation of cryptocurrency valuations.
  • Our maiden fund, ACV Blockchain Fund I is completely invested across a portfolio of 27 holdings across equity, tokens, and cryptocurrency investments (approximately a third in each category). Visit the portfolio here.
  • Fund II is now open to qualified accredited investors (see disclaimers below) and several existing investors in Fund I have signed up for Fund II as well. Most have funded their commitments already. However we are not investing from it yet, while we tweak strategy to adapt to the changing blockchain opportunity. Accredited investors who are qualified clients may wish to check out Fund II ( sign up to learn more).
  • Investing and fund-raising will bring me to your global city (London, Chicago, Tokyo) in the next 6 weeks. I also frequently in New York and San Francisco. Please fill out this form and let me know you would like to meet via the message box.

Warm regards,

Shyam
