The structure will give preference to startups at an early stage of development, which are engaged in the creation of a “multi-chain, multi-currency and multi-platform world.”
The fund has already invested in 20 companies, which subsequently received additional funding.
The structure was supported by Ripple, HashKey, Wemade, Circle Ventures, Alchemy Ventures, Cherubic Ventures, Forte and NGC.
Dispersion Capital founder Patrick Chang said the organization’s goal was to “bring Web3 to a level similar to cloud computing.”
“The segment was frustrating: onboarding, scalability and hacks. The infrastructure was incredibly immature and people didn’t think about it.” he explained.
Dispersion Capital is focused on supporting startups focused on “specific layers of Web3, including fintech and gaming infrastructure, security, data, and platforms that challenge legacy industries.”
Recall that according to the results of January-March 2023, the volume of venture capital investments in crypto firms within 353 funding rounds amounted to $2.6 billion, the minimum since the fourth quarter of 2020, according to PitchBook.
Earlier, the organization’s analyst Robert Le, as the reasons for the decline in the activity of venture investors, called the rise in interest rates and the collapse SVB — a reference bank for such companies. The specialist allowed the worst period of the “financial drought” to end.
