Arseny Klekovkin
Managing Partner
Retail-driven crypto boom of 2017-2018 provided blockchain entrepreneurs with initial capital lightly structured and at high valuation for the idea stage.
Why now?
This is an attractive entry point combining maturing technology, better choice of quality projects, valuations more driven by fundamentals and ongoing mainstream adoption.
Nowadays blockchain projects are maturing, releasing advanced products and getting popular with institutional and corporate investors. Every household has a chance to experience direct transacting built on a more efficient, fair and inclusive technology.
