As the world changes, so does bitcoin’s place in it.

Our view of the world
Just as the internet made information open and borderless, digitization will make money and markets open and borderless.
How we operate
CoinShares Ventures is the venture capital arm of the CoinShares Group, and manages a family of funds for external investors. We generate returns for our investors by finding, investing in, and growing the category leaders of the emerging digital finance ecosystem.
WHAT WE INVEST IN
Our driving philosophy is to invest in what we know, and we know crypto and capital markets. We look for early stage companies with experienced founders who have built a viable product or prototype and are beginning to find and scale product market fit.
HOW WE INVEST
We invest in SAFEs, convertible notes, and preferred equity, and a material number of our investments have also issued tokens alongside our equity ownership. Our investment process focuses on founder / market fit, and finding the right people to solve the right problem.
HOW WE DRIVE VALUE
As trusted industry leaders, and part of the larger CoinShares Group, we leverage our brand, our network, and our experience to help our portfolio companies grow. Instead of relying on other investors for signal, we use our influence and our network to create new narratives.
OUR RESEARCH & TALKS
We Like Data
We produce a lot of research, which we deliver as reports, talks, or events. Our annual CoinShares Crypto Trends report is a bellwether for the industry. Our general partners are known for their structured, data-driven talks and are regular media contributors.
