About CoinFund

At CoinFund, we marry the power of capital with the inventiveness and grit of the world’s most innovative founders. Since 2015, we’ve partnered with the most promising creators behind blockchain, web3, and decentralization technologies that are shaping the future of the internet itself. Through our seed, venture and liquid strategies, we are a cryptonative firm that invests in trends early. Today, CoinFund has a portfolio of over 120 companies, protocols, and projects across the blockchain space – and we think we’re just getting started.

At CoinFund, we are as diligent and thoughtful with our hiring process as we are with our investment practice. We look for candidates who are invested in the long-game of crypto and can’t imagine a better industry in which to spend the next several years of their career. Additionally, we align with individuals who are mission-driven – those who abandon ego and act in service of our investors, our portfolio company founders, and, ultimately, the crypto end-user. Finally, we optimize for those with a healthy risk appetite. We are excited by talent who can thrive in ambiguity and embrace both the vicissitudes and the promise of this breakthrough industry.
