Coinfund’s news $300 million venture fund will take a “founders first” philosophy when prospecting for new crypto projects.

Coinfund Launches $300M Web3 Fund to Bet on Next ‘Industrial Revolution’

Coinfund is betting big on Web3. 

While some of the biggest crypto companies continue to lay off employees, Coinfund is doubling down on the future of Web3. 

The crypto-focused investment firm announced Wednesday that it’s launching a massive $300 million venture capital fund for Web3 founders looking to finance their crypto projects. 

Adams Street Partners, StepStone Group, Accolade Partners, Theta Capital Management, the Teacher Retirement System of Texas, and partners from Venrock are among those who have contributed to the fund.

The fund, also known as Coinfund Ventures, is prioritizing a “founders first” philosophy when identifying Web3 projects that already have “early traction” in the market and aim to shape the next blockchain-based iteration of the internet, according to a statement.

Coinfund managing partner David Pakman—who is also on the board of directors for crypto companies Dapper Labs and Rarible—believes the $300 million fund is coming at just the right time despite the ongoing bear market. 

“In my 30 years in tech, I have never seen a bigger opportunity than crypto and Web3,” Pakman said in a release announcing the fund.

And in a blog post, he pointed to the 19% of new startups created this year being focused on Web3 as a sign that the crypto space isn’t going away anytime soon.

While Pakman said that celebrating the fund’s launch is, in his view, “a silly moment,” he believes Web3 will bring a momentous technological shift.

“We think we are looking at the largest amount of economic value creation we have seen since, well, the Industrial Revolution,” he said.
