Note from Blockchain Capital

Blockchain Capital is the first a sector focused VC fund that invests in blockchain technology and bitcoin companies. The firm was founded by Bart Stephens, Brad Stephens, and Brock Pierce with the goal of investing in the leading companies in the sector. The fund is backed by a long list of top tier LPs with deep domain expertise. The fund reserves 50% of capital to continue investing in startups after the initial investment.

Anyone considering an investment in Blockchain Capital should understand that these investments represent absolute risk and there is a meaningful risk that you can lose all of your investments. There is no guarantee of a "soft landing" or acquisition if things do not go as planned. In addition, there is no guarantee that, even in a successful company, there will be opportunity for liquidity for the shares represented and an investor should be prepared to have their capital committed for ten years or more, without liquidity.

Blockchain Capital intends to share every deal with the AngelList platform, whenever possible. This AngelList syndicate allows angels and investors from across the world to back every great deal we do on the same terms as our fund.

Portfolio suggestion: Invest in several companies, not one. We don't expect you to back every deal, but please don't invest in just one or two. Aim for five or ten at a minimum, and more if you can.

Amount: When you back our syndicate, you have to select an "Amount" to back our deals. Remember, this is a zero-commitment reservation, meaning you can invest less than this amount or nothing at all. You won't be able to write a check larger than your commitment when a great deal comes along. Deals can become oversubscribed quickly and, if your reservation is low, that will be the maximum amount we can let you invest. The best strategy is to enter an amount that represents the largest check you might write in any one deal. There's no risk, as you will have to approve every deal we send to you.

Pre-Funding: Backers that want priority, guaranteed access to our deals use AngelList's pre-funding option. This lets you deposit funds with AngelList ahead of time and, when we release a deal, you get guaranteed access. Unlike our statements in “Amounts”, above, if you pre-fund our syndicate, you will automatically back our deals. Please remember that you can always come back and change your commitment at any time. The upside is guaranteed access, but the downside is you have to lock these funds up with us. Also, keep in mind we will NOT approve pre-funded accounts with less than $10k of individual commitments. The reason being that syndicates can only allow 99 guaranteed investors and we have to restrict these slots to larger checks.

Feel free to reach out to us if you have any questions.

Brock is one of the most passionate and innovative entrepreneurs & investors I've ever met. It's been a pleasure to invest with him and see him move mountains for his companies.
I have invested with Brock over many years and he has been an outstanding angel investor as well a company advisor. His level of domain knowledge in gaming, Bitcoin and Internet marketing companies is exceptional. But his most important contribution with respect to the companies he invests in...more
Brock Pierce is a guy you want on your side. He can get deals done and works faster than anyone I know. Brock knows the Bitcoin and digital currency space inside and out. If you're not only looking for a source of capital but want actual know-how and a serious rolodex, he's your guy.
Very deep knowledge and connections to the world of startups and virtual economy/currencies. A great person to work with (we work together as part of the Mastercoin Foundation board of directors).
Brock is one of the most experienced gaming experts I've met and is certainly the most experienced virtual currency expert I've come across. He's sharp, quick and always quotable. He's also a great person to work with.
Thinks with insight and talks with foresight. If you need someone to see through muddled waters, identify opportunities from a distance or raise large capital in a short amount of time, he is the man
Brock Pierce is a force of nature. He is that rare entrepreneur who can take an idea (his or someone else's) and turn it into millions of dollars by putting together the talent, the team and the capital, then launch a full product while others are still debating the merits of the space....more
Brock is one of the most brilliant entrepreneurs I know and a formidable investor.
Most importantly, his instinct always bring him first to discover gigantic opportunities.
Brock is a tenacious thinker, investor, and advisor who has a deep knowledge of gaming and digital currencies. His understanding of Bitcoin as an ecosystem and passion for its growth make him an unparalleled strategic resource.
Brock is a wise investor, brilliant entrepreneurs, and sharp thinker in many areas, especially in the field of reimagining the world's currency systems. We are very glad to have him as an investor in Hive as we work to build a global network of purpose-driven leaders.
