Paradigm, an investment company specializing in crypto assets, announced on November 15, 2021 that it has created a crypto asset fund worth $2.5 billion (KRW 2.94 trillion). The fund of this size is said to be the largest in terms of crypto assets.

According to Erssam, the emergence of new funds and its size reflect that crypto assets are one of the most exciting frontiers in the tech industry. Although crypto assets have developed significantly over the past decade, crypto asset owners account for less than 10% of the world’s population, and decentralized financial DeFi systems are He said his accumulated assets have grown to over $100 billion, but he is still small in terms of the financial system as a whole.

Venture capitals such as Sequoia, which Huang belonged to before starting the paradigm, are known to destroy common sense in various industries, but are reconstructing the venture capital structure itself. As funding tools such as token issuance and decentralized autonomous organization DAO develop, the environment surrounding venture capital is also changing.

Many crypto-asset projects now have access to a means of financing without going through an investment company. Famous venture capitalists, such as Andreessen Horowitz (a16z, Andreessen Horowitz), who founded a $2.2 billion crypto-asset fund in June, have started to specialize in crypto assets. The fund started again. Moreover, many crypto-asset native investment firms have begun to enter crypto-asset projects, and Paradigm is considered one of them.

The establishment of the crypto-asset fund says that Paradigm’s success in raising $25 USD and attracting attention from many investors proves that Paradigm has been successful so far and is an expression of future expectations for the company. Results will be revealed in a few years, but at this time, the crypto asset market seems to be mixed. Related information can be found here.
