Multicoin Capital is a thesis-driven investment firm that invests in cryptocurrencies, tokens, and blockchain companies reshaping trillion-dollar markets. We manage a hedge fund and a venture fund, investing across both public and private markets.
Since founding the firm in May 2017, we’ve developed a reputation for being forward-leaning, independent thinkers. We are known for pioneering token economic models, valuation methodologies, and challenging long-standing assumptions that the crypto ecosystem takes for granted.
Crypto is the first inherently global asset class, and we’ve built our team around the world, with a presence in Austin, New York City, and Beijing.
As a crypto-native fund, we actively participate in networks via staking, keeper operations, liquidations, and more. Moreover, we are intimately familiar with the crypto technology landscape and market structure. We are hands-on investors, and will do everything in power to maximize the success of our portfolio companies.
Today, we manage long duration capital on behalf of storied venture capital funds, family offices, institutions, and high net worth individuals.
The blockchain space is evolving at breakneck speed. Our team hails from diverse backgrounds, giving us a competitive edge in staying ahead.
