Our Strategy




SparkChain Capital is uniquely positioned to capture the opportunities across the top four blockchain
and cryptocurrency markets in the world.

Our investment thesis:

  • BLOCKCHAIN IS REVOLUTIONARY.
    It will change and disrupt many industries because it can be more secure, transparent, and efficient than existing systems today.

    Financial institutions, healthcare, energy, security, data storage, governments, healthcare, and many others will be disrupted.

  • BITCOIN, ETHEREUM, AND OTHER CRYPTOCURRENCIES WILL CHANGE SOCIETIES.
    The definition of money, the flow of money, and our trust (for the better) will all change due to cryptocurrencies.


Our Investment Approach:

  • Focused on the Best Blockchain & Crypto Companies.
    We will focus on equity investments into the best blockchain and crypto companies across the globe

  • Highly Vetted ICOs.
    We will carefully vet all of our ICO investments since many are questionable in intent or execution ability

  • Target no more than 10% of the fund to cryptocurrencies.
    Our target holdings for cryptocurrencies in total will be 10% of the fund, and we will be holding these positions and not actively trading.







Our Advantage

  • 3. ENTREPRENEURS AND BUILDERS

    Everyone of our partners have been entrepreneurs and operators. We know the hardships of founders and their teams, and we contribute to their success in multiple ways. We love getting our hands dirty.



  • 4. GLOBAL NETWORK THAT IS RELEVANT AND IMPACTFUL

    Our team has the right relationships for startups within the blockchain and cryptocurrency space. From some of the largest financial institutions to healthcare companies to government entities.
