Note from Ben

I have been focused intensely on Bitcoin and startups in the cryptocurrency space since mid 2011, and have been a seed investor in BitPay, Coinsetter, itBit and Yoyocard. I run a private discussion group of entrepreneurs, engineers & investors called SVBitcoin, which I would also invite my syndicate members to participate in. I believe in 2014 and beyond, there will be a new wave of entrepreneurs attacking the problems in the space: usability, security, liquidity, as well as building the next layers on top of the base protocol. My angel investments are not exclusively in Bitcoin startups, but they will be the focus for this syndicate.

Dealflow

I will syndicate all of my deals in Bitcoin companies where I am able to get at least a $200k allocation. I may choose to syndicate other non-Bitcoin deals as appropriate, but would expect a potentially lower participation rate.
