Blockchain VC Firms

The cryptocurrency industry is slowly gaining the attention of big time Investors. There currently are Blockchain VC firms that are operating in the industry and investing in blockchain and crypto projects.

The Crypto Research Fund embarked on a mission to classify and rank the best Blockchain VC firms by a multitude of factors. The research resulted in one of the most accurate and detailed articles on Blockchain VC firms to date.

Factors to rank the best Blockchain VC firms

It is hard to rank all Venture Capital firms, because of the many factors coming into play. From blockchain investment numbers to acquired blockchain assets and time in the industry, the list is kind of long. The results are the top 50 most influential VC companies in the industry.

The study began with over 3000 Blockchain VC firms, before the data was filtered with the numerous factors that come into play. The number was brought down to 127 Blockchain Venture Capital firms that have made at least 3 investments in Blockchain technology. They were ranked according to four categories:

  • Capital Outlay: Estimated cumulative value of venture investments in Blockchain companies
  • Overall Activity: Number of Blockchain investments or funding rounds
  • Recent Activity: Number of Blockchain investments made in the last 12 months (from June 15th, 2017 – to June 15th, 2018)
  • Blockchain Experience: Time since the first investment in Blockchain projects

Each of the 127 Blockchain Venture Capital Firms were ranked in ascending order in each of the above categories, with total scoring being based on the sum of the four ranks. From the 127, 50 were picked as the best Blockchain Venture Capital firms. The factors that bring the most points are:

  • Total number of blockchain investments
  • The level of investment activity in the last 12 months
  • Length of blockchain investment experience
  • Total value of blockchain investments
